Helen Blencowe has discovered that inspiration and change can come in the most unexpected ways. The last few years have been a time of challenge and growth for her, of overcoming fears and obstacles, of learning, and of fulfilling dreams. Helen's CD, 'Resonance', is the result of the profound peace and overwhelming joy she experienced while realizing her long - held dream of swimming with whales. This album is quite unlike anything she has ever created before: an expression from deep within her being, and a product of her life's journey. Her ethereal vocal tapestries (no instruments are used) have resulted in this unique music that resonates within the soul to bring relaxation and healing, and to aid with meditation and prayer. Both soothing and stirring, at times disturbing, these free-flowing vocal improvisations vaguely resemble Gregorian and other chants, and incorporate toning and overtoning singing. This A Capella music is spontaneously sung, not written or rehearsed, by one solo female singer (and a multi-track recorder) - no other instruments are used. Except for reverb, and a graphic equaliser on some tracks, no technical effects are used. Though often listed as 'New Age' music, Helen simply calls it music for relaxation and healing, Helen is a classically trained singer. She won the London Folk Music Festival Performer's Certificate in 1975, and is an experienced performer and Christian worship leader. A prolific songwriter and composer, her compositions include contemporary folk, praise and worship and children's songs, two musicals, and relaxation music. Allow yourself to receive what you need as you listen to this music. The effects may be different each time you listen . "We won't know what's around the next corner unless we keep walking." "It's vital that we pursue our dreams and follow our hearts'"
