For many years, the early recordings of Michael Stearns were highly sought after. Now, the grand master of ambient and spacemusic offers a renewed ‘encounter ‘ with his old days in a remastered form.
M’Ocean was originally released in 1983 on cassette by the Continuum Montage label under the title ‘Light Play ‘ and re-released for the first time on CD by the Sonic Atmospheres label a year later. Hearing the first notes of M’Ocean, the seasoned Stearns listener will immediately recognize Michael’s massive and distinguished sound, a sound which would lead to world fame a couple of years later with classics like Planetary Unfolding, Chronos and Encounter.
M’Ocean can be regarded a Michael Stearns classic; a real warm-up for all the great things that followed.
