David Arkenstone is an American composer and performer. His music is primarily instrumental, with occasional vocalizations. His music has been described as ‘soundtracks for the imagination.’ Recently he has written music for video games, including World of Warcraft, and for television, including NBC’s Kentucky Derby. He has received three Grammy Award nominations for his work.

My favorite track on the Cd is “Ancient Legend”. It just feels like a positive tune that is relaxing with a sort of native American vibe. The title track has a subtle tribal feel to it. Another track I will highlight is Track number five, “Eastern Dream”. This is a very ambient track that is relaxing and dreamy, if you will with almost an Asian feel in the background.
The rest of the CD is nothing special.

SOUND: It’s an eighties CD, digitally recorded,so it sounds like it should.

One thought on “David Arkenstone – Valley In The Clouds

  1. David Arkenstone ❤ One of the most inspiring celtic new age artists of all times! He is one of my main influences as a composer. I aim to produce similar beautiful modern new age / fantasy music with my Celestial Aeon Project. If you are interested, for example Flying Island release is an example of this kind of beautiful and mellow sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PWUe-TcfMs – best wishes from Finland!
