orchestra and choral voices," Novus is an inspired fusion of
influences from traditional sacred and classical music set in a contemporary electronic ambience.

The exalted queen of ethereal ambient music, Constance Demby emerges from a six year absence with SANCTUM SANCTUORUM. Like her previous outings, SANCTUM SANCTUORUM is another grand symphony of electronic and natural music; a dreamscape of spiritual energy one won't want to depart from. Active listening provides a sonic journey that allows one to ebb and flow with the reverberating synthesizer textures and majestic Gregorian/Western style plainchants. The passive listener will be comforted by the mood the album sets - it's hard not to find tranquility in the presence of this music. The quest for peace is one many embark on, Demby makes finding it seem second nature.
Constance Demby is a pioneer in space music. Her album NOVUS MAGNIFICANT pretty much defined ambient musical styles in the late 80's and remains a benchmark of the sub-genre to this day. It's nice to know that almost two decades later, Demby still is making music that stands head and shoulders above the rest. SPIRIT TRANCE is a collection of film score excerpts (including the stirring theme from "James Dean - An American Legend" and several quasi-spiritual compositions from "I Am") and re-imagined pieces from her past repertoire. Each of these selections features an intricate array of space effects, vocal and chant textures, synthesizers that exhibit the sweeping grandeur of a symphony and isolated piano melodies that seem to wander amid the spacious backdrops. Complex and transcendent, this trip through the cosmos is a journey you won't want to miss.
