This album is a collaboration of kindred souls who are so perfectly attuned to each other that their music flows in an exquisite, seamless wellspring of harmonics that dazzle the listener and open the heart with its luminous, transcendant beauty.. The music is highly visual and can free the spirit to see and experience those magical moments where remembered feelings of love enrich the senses and thoughts turn to those moments most beloved and treasured. The music is gentle, delicately spun and luscious. The melodies are clear yet multi dimensional. One is invited into a deeply quiet, healing space within the silence of a vast universe to feel a sense of peace that awaits beyond…

Norwegian producer / composer / instrumentalist Oystein Sevag launches Link: 3 new compositions written for keyboard, flute and computers. The cuts are melodic and accessible but with plenty of edge and power. The pace of this album never falters, from the quiet, ethereal sax work of Bendik Hofseth to the scintillating Latin beat of Carl Stormer on “Afrika Flower” and on the eerie mystery of “The Long Night,” produced by Oystein’s computer work…

MP3 @ 256 Kbps | 45:44 min | 1994 | 102 MB | 10% Recovery Record

Oystein Sevag’s reputation as the Norwegian “sound painter” has been confirmed with his newest project, Global House. Sevag continues to show his listeners that he is a distinctive and daring creator of contemporary instrumental music. He broadens his musical horizons with a wider range of musicians, including a string quartet, a didgeridoo player, and an Afro-Cuban percussionist. This record is a brilliant multicultural mix of influences from various geographic regions and cuts across jazz, classical, world and ambient genres.

Oystein Sevag – Close Your Eyes And See

01Oystein Sevag – Close Your Eyes And See
MP3 @ 256 Kbps | 50:27 min | 1989 | 107 MB | 10% Recovery Record

Something I really like about this album is that it is really tough to predict what sound you will hear, unless you listen to the same album endlessly. There are some extremely fast rhythms, and there are some sections when you just simply feel the drawn out emotions without realizing it until after the fact. There are also some sounds that you don’t hear many other musicians play; it seems to borrow elements from the Middle East and blend them with traditional jazz.

When I play this for most people, they seem to really like it. The only negative feedback I ever received was a friend of mine who, at the time, was really into standard radio easy listening music (like what you hear on “Smooth Jazz” radio stations across the country today). There aren’t very many objectionable sounds. Of course, if you insist on listening to music with words, you WILL be sorely disappointed.

If you like Jazz, world music, and New Age, then this is another great album for you. This is yet another outstanding album from Oystein. It’s easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of emotion from the music. This album is perfect for relaxing or spending romantic time with your significant other. I also suggest checking out Global House, but Bridge seems to be a little more mature. The 30 second clips online don’t do the album justice, but they do give you a small taste of what’s on the album.
