Adam Byatt Sometimes it's the minimalist tracks that have the most impact; not the flash of musical technique but the simplicity of expression that captures the depth of emotion. Favorite track: The Well.

Track Name: Grander Schemes
A journey across panoramic skies, a magic carpet ride in the East, cinematic themes, a window of light, tones that conjure volcanic lava and gritty hypnotic rhythms.
Track Name: Don't Break My Heart
Don't break my heart

There's no one quite like you
Twenty five thousand light years from earth
A blue hypergiant pistol star

You know what to do
Don't break my heart
Pistol star

Don't hide in the interstellar dust
You know what to do
Pistol star

Track Name: It's Always Been You
Haunting vocals calling out alongside sweeping violin lines and the cries of a ghostly bowed saw. Melodies rise and fall like storm clouds that hover over a bed of rhythmic activity somehow reminiscent of the Caribbean Island seas.
Track Name: Kaleidoscope (title track)
Combining to create a cinematic soundscape of melody and rhythm; East meets West as Americana guitar, electric piano and Chinese Lute dance over a rolling hypnotic Latin mix of tom toms and percussion.
Track Name: Missing you
Thoughtful steps along a pathway. Missing you. A Chinese lute plays and leads to an open place. Peace.
Track Name: Still (Waiting)
SERENE, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
For, lo! my own shall come to me.

I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.

Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.

What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it hath sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.

The waters know their own and draw
The brook that springs in yonder height;
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delight.

The stars come nightly to the sky;
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.
Track Name: Take Stock
A smooth moody and ethereal groove with funky/jazzy piano part.
