Georg Deuter is a German New Age instrumentalist and recording artist known for his meditative style that blends Eastern and Western musical styles. This CD has been composed with the idea to reflect the moods of the night, its silence, its soft songs, when the human mind has gone to sleep to dream. East of the Full Moon evokes images of the night sky, the moon appearing behind clouds, the world losing its stark colors, and trees becoming just shadows against the moon. The stars expand our awareness to a vast infinity and an immense silence, which is the only music there is. All music is an effort to bring this silence into existence, where the music becomes a reflection of something bigger.
Back in the wildly creative period of the psychedelic '60s, surrealist/avant-garde artist Brion Gysin took his friend Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones into the Moroccan foothills to hear and record The Master Musicians of a village called Joujouka. For a week they were possessed by a seductive form of trance music that has facilitated astral travel and celestial visitations for centuries. The Next Dream, produced by maverick musician Bill Laswell, is a solo project by Bachir Attar, the chief of these musicians.
