OM LAND – THE SHORTCUTS by David Vito Gregoli
Award-winning Producer/Guitarist David Vito Gregoli combines his unique talents with Grammy winning artist/composer Ricky Kej, accomplished singer/songwriter Kimberly Haynes and percussionist/sound healer Christo Pellani to bring you Om Land – The Shortcuts, re-imagined shorter versions of the acclaimed ambient/chant album “Om Land” from David Vito Gregoli..
With roots in the artists’ own spiritual philosophy, Om Land is inspired by the “OM” symbol. “Without beginning or end, OM embraces all that exists,” explains Gregoli, an avid meditator and Buddhist. “Just pronouncing the OM syllables creates a percussive vibration that flows from the back of the throat onto the lips. A-U-M.” Adds Vito, “We started with that very personal and yet universal sound as the core, and then layered on our musical interpretations.”
Vito has interwoven the human voice, synthesizers, percussion and acoustic guitars to represent the spiritual and vibrational OM as a bath of sonic energy. The result is a soothing and yet uplifting listening experience that brings their audience into harmony with the Divine.
“Just picked up the digital for the new album “Om Land – The Shortcuts”. It is playing now on my monitors here in the studio…oh my wow. This is incredible. The mix is so rich and full. What mind-blowing engineering. Feels like a movie score.
The tanpura, strings, pads and other textures sound so epic and sit so well together in the mix. Superb arrangement…And the vocals are just filling the mix so well…Quite some remarkable work… Superb performances… The feel and the way the performance is captured is both really good. Loved the meditative nature of the last track “Just the OMs, Please”. You are easily one of the finest New Age and Worldbeat artists that I know of…I also love the premise of the album – Re-imagined shorter versions of the acclaimed ambient/chant album from David Vito Gregoli.”
