Music Review: Soundscapes album by Steve Bowe.
Steve Bowe from the UK is a pianist and multi-instrumentalist whose lively new age music compositions are technologically driven. In addition his programing skills are conducive for the advancement of contemporary electronic music by diving into the cutting edge of today’s new age music scene.
Soundscapes is Steve Bowe’s most recent new age/world fusion album featuring 12 songs fashioned in a variety of timbre and mood on each arrangement. The lively tempo and energetic atmosphere of Soundscapes is a sound sensation of mainly upbeat music. His songs are diverse and independent from one another in style, so like much of today’s music, classifying the songs on Soundscapes as strictly new age music doesn’t describe the full reach of his style.
Producing state-of-the-art melodies is not new to Steve Bowe at all since his interest into the more advance methodology to creating rhythmic music began early in life. Classically trained on piano at an early age, Steve Bowe is capable performer on a variety of instruments including, keyboards, piano, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, percussion and all programming. Steve’s skill as a programmer who pairs instrumental counterparts is apparent on another recent, first album entitled Finest Hour.
Soundscapes is by design, lively new age music rhythms with energetic qualities. I thought the songs Queen of the Nile & Sunset Highway go a long way in pointing out Steve Bowe’s abilities for producing lively new age music covering a wide range of melodic themes. Producing innovative song arrangements on both of his releases, Steve Bowe has a talent for creating energetic songs that become a fun, upbeat escape from some of the more conventional new age music.
