Notes

Info from Karmic Hit:

This cd has been created to help people ease into a gentle, restful, slumber. Solo piano and natural sound effects blend in a way which is immediately calming and ultimately sleep inducing. It can be played before bed or anytime you need to put your feet up for awhile. Regardless of when you play it, the results are intangibly effective. Not recommended for listening on long, night drives or while operating heavy machinery. In strictly limited edition deluxe packaging which includes 5 gorgeous gloss post cards designed by artist Zoe MacDonell.

Notes

Music for Film & TV II features predominantly introspective melancholy mood swings from a unique assortment of writer/composers who have an ear for music within the boundaries of Film & TV. This CD is designed to take you on an instrumental journey through soothing landscapes, rural sunsets, darker pastures and theatrical nightmares. The following are some ideal playing times: dinner parties, swimming lessons, office morning sessions, peak hour traffic congestion, relaxation periods, ironing, Sunday wake-up calls, brainstorming meetings, overcast afternoons, country driving, nightcaps and much more.... Please play and turn the volume to the requirements of your ears. Sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. -- Gary Seeger
