Responses to the Music of eyes cast down

I have probably listened to this disc more than 20 times in the past couple of weeks, and it has lost none of its potency for the repetition. While all music is personal at its core, The Separate Ones stands out for the extreme intimacy it conveys and the remarkable depth of effect it carries. It is profoundly intense in its honesty.

This sophisticated collection of Ambient realizations proves to be a delight of wit and wonder in its minimalist phantasmagoria of sounds. The Separate Ones seems felt rather than reasoned out, proving seductive in its use of musically dramatic forms - and achieves an uncanny haunting intensity equal to if not exceeding that of Moorcroft's predecessors.

So far the best ambient music I've heard lately. I discovered with joy that we share a very similar harmonic universe: modal, bitonal, and so on. There are very few musicians in our genre to deepen the exploration of musical harmony. Congratulations!

In this time of great change, it's essential to have a place of peace and tranquility readily accessible, and Greg's detailed and masterful music enables us to create and maintain such a place.

Greg meticulously crafts an engaging sonic environment for listeners to immerse themselves in... A really strong debut that I whole-heartedly encourage you to pick up for yourself.

... gentle flows of delicate beauty that reside at the edge of consciousness. Deep contemplation is easily promoted by this music.

Matt Howarth, Reviewer, USA

With his cadre of guitars and effects, Greg weaves a series of aerial soundscapes in the living air around him, leaving hints of watercolor so vividly in your imagination you can almost see them dripping into the fabric of the room.

John Koch-Northrup, Musician, Owner of the Relaxed Machinery music label and artistic community, USA

The Separate Ones features airy, drifting and lush textural worlds along gentle loops that now and then bring the older releases of Jeff Pearce to mind.

Bert Strolenberg, Reviewer, Netherlands

I have listened to Divinations several times - both awake and while sleeping. Not sure which consciousness mode I enjoy it in the most! Seriously Greg, you've hit a home run with this one!

Windspace (Bruce Hickey), Musician, USA

The Separate Ones from our good rM friend Greg alias eyes cast down is a grand journey to inner peace and tranquility. Traditional ambiences, percussion, guitar and voices in a sublime merge.

I can't thank you enough for these beautiful pieces - whenever I need to regroup and refocus, I go to your music.

I have to say, Greg, your music is beautiful!! It's such a gorgeous, soothing sound which I will definitely recommend for clients seeking a peaceful atmosphere.

The music creates the perfect ambiance for getting busy work done, keeping me energetic while creating a continuous calm demeanor.

K. Firek, Business Owner, Chicago

Thank you for the music at the workshop. I really enjoyed it and the music was a perfect complement to the session. In a way, I didn't even notice it; it was simply just a part of my experience and my emotions. At the same time, it helped guide my emotions and made the feelings I was having stronger and more focused.

S.R., Attorney, Chicago

At times I need an atmosphere that is conducive to concentrating my full mental abilities on my work. Just as importantly, I need to be inspired. The music of eyes cast down serves both purposes. The changing moods of the music subconsciously inspire my thoughts and contribute to the creativity of my work.

C.J. Jelinek, Web Developer, Chicago

My wife and I enjoyed the eyes cast down sample CD. In particular, our unborn child seems to get a kick out of Greg's compositions - literally. When we play it, we can feel the baby start to move! It's a testimonial to Greg's music as enjoyable for all ages, including -4 months. Keep up the great work!
