Ambient Ocean is at once contemplative and soothing. It’s oceanic quality will enhance any space used for therapy or healing, and chill-out home listening. Says Johann Kotze, the Ambient Ocean composer/yoga teacher who is out surfing whenever he can: “I love the ocean and its breath-like waves and sounds influences everything I do”.
This is evident in the mellow easy listening “Ethereal Chime” to the ambient dub of “Deep Mind Ocean Dub” to the therapeutic “New beginnings”. Emotive, therapeutic mood music; rich, subtly melodic orchestrations and ambient pads of synthesizers, piano or chiming electric piano. “Lullaby”, with its beautiful cello and mezzo soprano brings a haunting, melancholic closure to the album.
