Here is what iTunes had to say:
Whether heard at yoga sessions or during reflective or climatic scenes in independent films, active ambient music provides the mostly instrumental soundtrack to life’s emotionally contemplative times. Double bassist, composer, and Berklee College of Music alumnus Garth Stevenson joins the likes of Brian Eno, Sigur Rós, and David Sylvian as a practitioner of this ethereal yet accessible genre. The western Canadian native’s Flying opens with the nearly 13-minute “Dawn”, a constantly unfolding exploration of longing strings and subtle electronics. “Horizon” follows with soothing, wordless crooning and quiet treble piano accompaniment. “Flux” introduces sensitive percussion underneath warmly kinetic keyboard and piano lines, while “The Southern Sea” offers the aural equivalent of effortlessly swimming underwater without ever needing to come up for air.
