For Oasis, his third recording for White Swan Records, woodwind master Gary Stroutsos draws from and advances the global tradition of flute artistry, breathing a pervading sense of calm into this deep, relaxing suite of meditative flute music for meditation, spa, relaxation and restoration.

All the music for Oasis was recorded in one take, “in the moment,” during two late night studio sessions inside the Pacific Northwest. Using only a concert silver bass flute and Southwest desert rim flutes, Stroutsos recorded about a dozen pieces – over an album’s worth of material. Taken together, the nine tracks selected for Oasis reflect the artist’s many moods.

The challenge of recording solo pushed Stroutsos to explore not only his inner landscape, but his surrounding environment as well. In addition to the sea, always a grand source of inspiration for the flautist, he considered the many religious traditions that incorporate the architecture of their houses of worship into their music. He approached the recording studio as a sacred space, treating it as an equal partner and musical collaborator.

Oasis also gave Stroutsos the freedom to further his mastery of his instrument. As he explains,”I have never recorded a concert bass flute before and the sound has been inside my head for a long time, so I gave it a go. The sound contrasts nicely with the haunting yet plaintive Southwest desert rim flutes. Each instrument reflects a different mood and space, giving the music a nice balance and, I hope, a sense of an oasis (or sanctuary).”

Indeed, this collection of “tone poems” is a true celebration of the natural world and offers a quiet respite from the cacophony of the present.
