Phaeder - Singularity Review – www.kiwireviews.co.nz 06/06/06

12 Feb 2007 // A review by phaeder
Admittedly, this album would have never attracted me to pick it up, let alone listen to it; I'm glad I did - and listen to it is something I have done on a number of occasions now.

The Deep Voice Singing is unique to the Buddhist chanting, and to western ears, may sound a little strange to start with, but persevere and really listen to this album and one will get immense pleasure from it and a sense of serenity that the album's intonation gives us.

The Album raised a few eyebrows at work, but the general feeling was that it was a superb album, and one that could be played as ambient music in a store, rather than just meditated on. I had a number of customers offer very positive feedback on this album and wish to stay to listen to more.

Phaeder is a name that is new to me, but his double album (two CDs for the price of one) will encourage more people to listen to his ambient and relaxing sounds. I have never gone for 'relaxation' music, finding them too ethereal for my tastes; however, I did enjoy this one.

Phaeder: Lotus Beat
09 Feb 2007 // by phaeder
By Ben Nicholson It appears from this album that drum'n'bass and Buddism can make easy bedfellows. This release by German born, NZ based devotee Peter Haeder (Phaeder) places his religion and musical tastes side by side with interesting results (and according to his press release, the amusement of the Buddhist lamas.
