Leaves Of Paradise
Is a unique and beautiful project inspired
by the surreal and wonderfully evocative, insightful images of Brazilian artist
Joao Santos, brought to life through haunting music specially created by Kevin
for each landscape.
Light From Andromeda
Inspired by the awe-inspiring Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M31, this
music continues the journey far into deep space, carried along on a vast expanse
of ethereal, drifting sound, where atmosphere and texture take the place of melody
to enable the mind to truly wander freely.
Captures the spirit of the Orient
A mystical impression of China
The music on these albums is perfect
as an accompaniment to Reike and other alternative therapies, visulisation, or
for simply letting the mind wander
From The Pleiades
music for the third album LIGHT FROM THE PLEIADES
in the highly-acclaimed Deep Skies series by Kevin Kendle continues the journey
to the farthest reaches of space. Inspired by the mystical constellation of the
Pleiades constellation, an open cluster of stars steeped in lore and mystery,
the LIGHT FROM THE PLEIADES album continues
the musical journey to the farthest reaches of space.
The seven main stars
in the Pleiades cluster are named after the mythological seven daughters of the
gods Atlas and Pleione, and these Seven Sisters are often depicted dancing in
a joyous, trance-like reverie. This aspect is conveyed in some of the music by
a gently rhythmic pulse, whilst retaining the huge, spacious swathes of drifting
sound that Deep Skies series has become known for. Below are exclusive MP3 clips
of the final mixes of some the music from Light From

Release review by: Steve Sheppard
Radio Presenter, BBC Radio Solent and Quality Beats Radio
"... There are many joys in
life, but musically nothing quite compares when the expectation of a new Kevin
Kendle album finally arrives. Kevin Kendle is one of those quality
artists that never seems to let you down and therefore you wait with baited breath
to sample some more of the musical genius that is without doubt unrivalled.
The expansion of the Deep Skies series is a natural, but a much
needed series of albums to uplift the soul on it’s journey through life, rarely
does a series of albums give off that quality of passion that shows on every level
Kevin Kendle is in touch with his creative soul and ours the listener as
Track one may surprise some, but those who know the artist's
work well, will remember that the opening to both Light From Orion
and Lagoon of Eternity, were either powerful, deep and full of an
energy, or all three.
track Dance Of Electra starts in almost
similar style, where with delicate skill he touches us with a brief resonance
of his First Light Album, then moving us towards the last Deep Skies feel of “Star
Clusters” from the Lagoon of Eternity C.D. then into what
has the sense of a Mike Oldfield style piece and thanks to the help of
both Nigel Shaw and Brian Abbott, it works brilliantly.
The album continues with the the second track Alcyone.
The piece is described by Kevin Kendle as meditational and a journey that
as he says characterises the entire Deep Skies series, I found this
piece haunting. When Kevin Kendle plays piano it always hits at a deeper
resonance; there is something about this track and the piano that really takes
the listener further inside their own psyche than they will ever imagine. This
track is simply beautiful and extremely mystical. I defy you not to get lost in
the hypnotic beauty of Alcyone...
"... Maia from the mythology of the Greeks
was the most beautiful of the Seven Sisters. Maia
is the third track on the album and at 1 minute 20 you are virtually pulled into
a black hole of brilliance by Kevin Kendle's gifted genius on the moog.
The choir hits with precision of a perfection rarely seen in music these days,
and with a slight touch of Mike Oldfield and a smattering of Tomita
the artist deliverers a piece that is best served as timeless.
seamless way Kevin Kendle takes us through the album is a trade mark of
the Deep Skies series, and Merope
the fourth track starts with a familiarity that reminds me of latter tracks on
his Light From Orion album. It is as
if your star ship has now left warp and arrived in a region of space unknown to
man; it has a sinister, but expectant quality about it. The sheer celestial power
of this piece will transfix the meditative attention of the listener, allowing
them to harness the very evident power and deep nature of this track. Merope
is full of energy and majesty.
The fifth track
Taygeta, the mother of Lacedaemon by Zeus, is the next port of call
on our journey through the Pleiades. The start has a real Nigel Shaw feel
to it, reminding me of his Shamanka days and has that trance like quality. Again
he is on this track, one of five he features on, but his influence seems to be
prominent here. Again the synthesizers, Kevin Kendle's weapons of mastery,
move us through a piece that would be perfect for any science fiction film. Taygeta
is a lighter track, but it’s more of a subtle change of gear that we are receiving
Kevin Kendle calls track six “Night
Sky Music” - the actual piece is also entitled Asterope.
This reminds me deeply of those years as a child laying on my back on seamlessly
endless summer Kevin Kendle made piece that you can now take to your favourite
place and relax in the ambience to the perfect musical compliment to drift off
to a layered and blissful slice of musical night sky watching. It is rightly so
the longest piece on the album, I once again defy you not to get lost in the sheer
magnificence of this charming track.
final track, Celaeno known to many
as the “Lost Pleiad” because it is difficult to see the star with the naked
eye and hence has received the tag just given, is our last track. The journey
now begins to come to an end and our own personal star ship is reaching the final
destination. For musical purposes our destination is Celaeno.
For this track, Kevin Kendle is solo and great thanks must be paid to Nigel
Shaw and Brian Abbot for their brilliant help and musical genius on
this celestial journey. I was always told in life to try and leave the best to
last and leave your audience wanting more. Kevin Kendle does just that
and the reprise wraps up this amazing package for another album; this was the
track that left each and every hair on my body fully standing to attention and
that takes some doing - simply outstanding and my personal favourite. In summary,
Kevin Kendle has once again delivered to his audience a product of total
This is an album that I would without reservation recommend,
an album of majesty, an album of beauty, and it shows that one thing will never
change - if you see a CD or an Internet download with the name Kevin Kendle
on it, you can be completely certain that within the confines of the plastic casing
or Internet download will be around sixty minutes of music that will show total
dedication and love that a musician has for his art.
From The Pleiades an outstanding album, from
Kevin Kendle, an outstanding musician and artiste
