Desert Productions® music by philip elcano

About the Artist
Born in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, the son of a professional singer, Philip Elcano was raised with an appreciation of both musical and visual arts.
Piano lessons began early and led to a highlighted musical career throughout his schooling.
As a child, he played string bass with the Nevada Symphony Orchestra, and by high school, Philip was performing with numerous jazz ensembles and studio bands.

Philip graduated Cum Laude from the UCLA School of Music, where he took special interest in ethno-musicology.
This gave him a background in music from various cultures.
This exposure to composers and musicians from around the world has had a striking impact on his compositions.

As a classically trained composer-pianist, Philip has an award winning background in musical soundtracks for television including, "That Was Happy Life", which won recognition as Best Documentary Short in the American Indian Film Festival, 1993.

This is Phillip Elcano's second album in the Rain Dance Relaxation Series.

As life becomes faster paced, it becomes more and more important to remember that we are all a part of the beauty and cycles of nature.
Mr. Elcano believes that understanding this connection helps bring us inner peace and tranquility.

They are also used worldwide by massage therapists and in the labor and delivery rooms of hospitals.
The relaxation benefits to this music can be applied in many situations.

Mr. Elcano's music has touched my soul on many planes.
Notes from his songs have woven themselves into the fabric of my life.
As the soothing melodies floated through the air, each of my grandchildren, as were my sisters children, were guided into their new world.
"A White Rose for You" is my sisters favourite.

Midnight Dream - Rhythmic CD - Phillip Elcano

Midnight Dream CD by Phillip Elcano
Where Philip Elcano's "Rain Dance" was a glowing meditation on peace and serenity, his latest, Midnight Dream, extols the sensuous delights of romance and passion.
The spacious slow-breathing impressionism of the earlier CD has given way to sweeping melodies, grand orchestrations, and rhythmic drive, as Elcano tells a musical tale of a lover searching for, and finding, his beloved in the wild, misty mountains.
Along the way he witnesses a 'Dance of the Forest Fairies'--portrayed by cascading chimes, pizzicato strings and breathy synthesizer--and rides with a herd of wild horses (complete with the urgent sound of hooves) on the untamed 'Thunder Run'.

The pace and the drama slacken on the last few tracks, as lyrical and gentle tunes, with titles like 'Song of the Zephyr', 'Enamorados' and 'Cricket's Poem', portray the warm glow and pleasures of shared love.
This is poetry without words and a true joy from start to finish.

Songs Include:
1. Midnight Dream (3:31) 6. Daydream (3:37)
2. La Neblina (5:37) 7. Thunder Run (5:49)
3. Dance of the Forest (4:59) 8. Song of the Zephyr (5:16)
4. Whispering Pines (6:07) 9. Enamorados (Lovers) (4:08)
5. Dancing Light (3:59)  

When asked which of Mr. Elcano's songs are my favourites I would rather not answer as I am hard pressed to choose just one, but if I am cornered one that would come to mind is "Thunder Run".
Closing my eyes I am instantly transported to another place, another time, I can almost feel the mist of the fall morning in the air as the herd begins to stampede.
(The soundtrack for the horses in this compositon is the same one used for the horses running in The Man from Snowy River".)

Rain Dance CD by Phillip Elcano
Using instruments that express the beauty as well as the sounds of nature, Phillip Elcano created this album as a serene celebration of life.
All life is tied to the beautiful and sometimes mystical cycles of our home, the earth.

We wish for more rain to make our life-sustaining crops grow to nourish us.
