The Property Of Water
by Paul Adams
At the nucleus of this album is an interactive computer program called The Music Mouse designed by Laurie Spiegel, one of the early pioneers in electronic and computer music. It was the marriage of this deeply intuitive program with acoustic instruments and nature sounds working rhythmically within the compositions, that encouraged KXCI Radio in Tucson Arizona to call The Property Of Water "One of Adams' finest albums!" The goal was to explore the meditative side of music, and create organically smooth sound poems that had an artistic sense of character. The result births unity within diversity and shows how a kaleidoscope of sound and artistic expression work together!! The listener searching for a "far away journey, an escape to paradise, and the union of an artistic voyage within an embrace of peace" will find this album an artistic and meditative gem!
"The CD is fantastic! ! The Property of Water is very soothing... the listening experience a healing one. Keep up the good work!" -Renee Blanche KCUR FM Kansas City, Mo.
"Wow!! I am just blown away! I think it's a phenomenal piece of work, and I am putting it into heavy rotation right away!! I'm not letting this copy out of my sight!" -Michael Douglas KKCR Radio Princeville, Hi
"This album is built of contrasting elements reconciled in musical harmony. Natural and electronic sounds, water waves and sound waves, instruments of silicon and instruments of wood. This is music motivated by love of the power of sound, not by love of power over sound. Very restful !! Headphones recommended !!" -Laurie Spiegal, Pioneering Computermusic Sound Designer

Paul Adams spent his formative years building musical instruments for such luminaries as Daryl Hall, members of Stevie Wonder, The Pointer Sisters and others.
From Mountain Dulcimers, guitars, and Swedish Humels to composing music that Electronic Musicians magazine calls "surprisingly varied, very sophisticated and gorgeous!" Adams continues to prove that there are no boundaries in the creative realm! The San Jose, California Metro called Adams "...one of the most important New Age personalities since George Winston". Musical Starstreams, the largest syndicated instrumental radio show in America, called his first album, Various Waves, "The sleeper album of the year!" Tower Records Pulse magazine called Wonder Dancing On Global Bop "... a heady blend of world fusion, willfully eclectic...held together with scintillating fretwork!" A View From The Plain is a most unique acoustic guitar album that reached Top Ten status in Canada. Adams' following albums, In The Land Where I Come From and The Property Of Water, have continued to chart a unique musical course that is catching and risk taking. His music covers many genres and styles. Expect a beautiful surprise, and a wonderful journey!!
