2008 Grammy Nomination
This recording by multi-Grammy Award nominee, Pianist-Composer, Peter Kater, with renowned Brazilian Cellist, Jaques Morelenbaum, and multi-instrumental flutist, RIchard Hardy, is an intoxicating elixir of sound. True nectar for the soul. It is the sound of Ambrosia.
In ancient Greek mythology Ambrosia was sometimes the food, sometimes the drink of the gods and is often depicted as conferring ageless immortality upon whomever consumes it. It was brought to the Gods in Olympus by doves as a kind of divine exaltation of the Earth. It was also said that Ambrosia could cleanse all defilement from the flesh; that the effect of the years would be stripped away; that one would be cleansed, purified and returned to innocence.
Peter Kater has received many Grammy Award Nominations for his incredible body of work and sold millions of CD's. he has composed for film, television and Broadway but always returns to his love of creating "Healing" music for the mind, body and spirit. He was honored with the prestigious United Nations Environmental Leadership Award in recognition of his love, commitment and devotion to the natural beauty and preservation of the Earth, our Home.
We are the eyes, ears and hearts of the Universe. We exist within the Universe just as the Universe exists within us. The One Consciousness guides and communicates with us in a multitude of ways; through our intuition, nature, overheard conversations, our thoughts and through friends and loved ones. My life feels the most full, rich and alive when I'm in the awareness of the sacredness of all life and all life's experiences. The art of accessing the deeper places and awareness of one's own being has been practiced in may forms for thousands of years. Today, we reconnect with our deeper selves in many ways. By having quality alone time, being present with our friends and loved ones, seeking out appropriate healing therapies and spending time in nature. We can stop, take an inventory and ask if we're addressing our deeper needs and feelings. We can allow the layers of stress and protection to fall away as we remove ourselves from the numbing pace of our society and the over-stimiluating sensationalism of the media. With time, we gain access to our most intimate center and have experiences of unqualified self-love and acceptance. We can travel great inner expanses one step at a time and experience our Selves as part of the great natural divinity of all the Earth and the Heavens. This is our birthright . . . and our healing. - Peter
