Swimming in the Heart of the Sun is the newest release from Dennis. Here he teams up with his sister to create an acoustic ambient reflection on the Lord’s Prayer. Using only acoustic instruments – piano, pipe organ, guitar and alto saxophone, and combining them with soprano vocals sung in Latin, a cathedral-like atmosphere is created, both peaceful and mysterious. The music is spacious and evocative, gentle and quietly passionate.
Dreams & Visions is Dennis Hendricksen’s newest release. An instrumental journey using ambient, jazz, funk, classical and rock styles, all woven together in the unique sound Dennis calls his Cinematic Sound. Featuring the electric violin mastery of Hugh Marsh (formerly of Bruce Cockburn’s band) and many other excellent musicians, this is a recording that continually delights and surprises. The CD comes as a Special Edition Set – complete with a 32 page colour booklet and a metal tin case.
Very Nearly a Whisper is ambient music for prayer and meditation. The music on this recording, while subtly shifting over time, does not use elements designed to hold the listener’s attention. At the same time this ambient music provides an anchor for the ear that is not used to complete and intentional silence.
