A fantasy novel without words;

twelve stream-of-consciousness 'chapters'
flow seamlessly into one another,
for an uninterrupted 60 minutes
of otherworldly solo harp music.

May this music, or the dream of it,
accompany you on many flights of fancy.
May it calm the whirling winds of your world,
inflame the fires of your imagination,
and underscore your journeys to other realms.
        - Stephanie Bennett, 2009(Scroll past the Music Player for more info.)

Unlike any harp recording you've heard before, this music floats like a dream from one fantastic realm to another; redolent at times of Middle Eastern mystery, at other times of Impressionistic clouds, at other times of mischievous fay. Never predictable, always surprising; at once inspiring and soothing. Perfect for massage, meditation, yoga, creativity, relaxation, or letting your imagination soar.

Stephanie Bennett comes by this surprising eclecticism naturally, having lived in India for a year and in Japan for several months; having concertized in Australia, Brazil, Japan, Costa Rica, Argentina, Switzerland, France, Chile, Ecuador and Guatemala; having toured with artists as diverse as Persian star Dariush and Mexican stars Vicente and Alejandro Fernandez; having opened concerts for Chick Corea, and having recorded with artists as diverse as Sir Paul McCartney, Linda Ronstadt, Miyuki Nakajima, many Celtic artists and Windham Hill artists.

Purchase the CD from Harpworld ($10):

Or purchase either the CD or download from CDbaby.
Please note: iTunes offers it as a full album or as individual tracks, but please DON'T buy individual tracks;
The 'Chapters' (12 cuts) are NOT really separate 'songs' as they do NOT have beginnings and endings, so they do NOT feel happy or sound their best if shuffled (between other songs).
