This album creates a perfect calm in the storm of everyday life. Meditative, soothing and relaxing, Christel Veraart's music draws on both classical and modern influences. Ten original compositions take the listener on an enchanting journey through space and time. Referring to her music as Soundscapes, Christel combines sound with images and poetry, creating a unique experience. Her music reflects her own life experience, extensive travels throughout the world, and an enduring love of nature. Born in the Netherlands, Christel studied classical music and voice. Her work took her to Latin America, which has left a lasting imprint on her style, both in melody and rhythm. Her profession also brought her to the US, and eventually Alaska. Christel is grateful for influence gained from the great classical composers, and other modern artists including Lisa Gerrard, Enya, Mercedes Sosa, and many more. Arthur Payson, record producer/mixer for Fox Broadcasting and many celebrities, has this to say regarding Christel: "In all my years of producing music, I have never seen a more dedicated and talented artist than Christel Veraart. She puts her heart into everything she writes, and her vulnerability touches my soul. Her songs stay with me for days after listening, like the memory of a good friend I can revisit over and over again."
