The making of MIRCALE OF DOLPHINS - Solo Piano,
is inspired by recordings of dolphins sounds, the artist slowed the actual dolphin tones down from their high-pitched sounds on a tape recorder to the range of human hearing. Then, in Tracks 1, 2 and 3, Paul Lloyd Warner transcribed the individual dolphin tones to the notes on the piano. From there he created the music.
MIRACLE OF DOLPHINS is a tone-poem for the intelligence and beauty of dolphins everywhere. They are brilliant beings who are conscious, aware, thinking individuals who possess great faculties such as navigation throughout all oceans. The key to understanding dolphins is to make an attempt to comprehend their intelligence, their minds, and the wonderful things they do in both the dolphin world and their interactions with humans.
The music in this album is a celebration of the Dolphin World. It is basically a work of minimalism for piano and is not designed to be a piano showpiece but an insight into the mind of the Dolphins. Enjoy this exuberant work and sometimes intuitive work. Many people have reported this music to have a healing effect, both relaxing and stimulating.
