Roger Palmer - Artist Biography:
Roger Palmer is a native of the Pacific Northwest. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Puget Sound and his Masters degree in music from Pacific Lutheran University. Growing up, he played jazz trumpet and began playing piano close to the onset of his formal education. Classical training gave him a deeper appreciation for all musical forms. He has been a teacher of music education for 25 years His teaching encompassed a broad spectrum of administrative duties and directorships. He has an extensive performance background playing engagements in the greater Puget Sound and Seattle area.
Palmer is currently devoting his talents to writing music for multimedia. His current project is, Escape Into America, short videos combining still photographs, cartoons, narration and music. This is a project created by David Horsey, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist, and photographer, Nancy Levine, and MSNBC.com.

Music for a New Age
Composer and recording artist, Palmer released Lifetimes the Millennium Suite in 2001 and Ventana de Vida in 2008. Both CDs are available at on line resources http://www.sonicbids.com/palmer2 and http://myspace.com/palmerreedy or http://www.amazon.com or http://www.jango.com/music/palmer .
This body of work is categorically New Age music, but the music is fresh and new, beautifully written and beautifully produced. According to one review, The melodies and moods fairly glisten from beginning to end. Phrase by phrase, note be note, Lifetimes and Ventana De Vida is a spherical reflection illuminating conflict within the human psyche which struggles to find a state of peace. As a whole, these two albums are a poignant reminder each lifetime is a miracle and a diving journey.

In its entirety, Lifetimes is built around a central theme, Millennium Suite. The only interruption in the instrumental format is Awakening, a poem written by Janice Johnson-Palmer. Reminiscent of Pink Floyds Delicate Sound of Thunder, the music is clearly an interpretive vehicle picking up where words leave off.
Palmers release of Ventana De Vida (Window of Life) is new age/world music that combines ambient sound and crosses over into World. Its instrumental, spatial sounds are grounded in beautiful melodies and world rhythms. Read an on- line review of Ventana de Vida written by Serge Kozlosky:

Review by Serge Kozlovsky: visit: www.sergekozlovsk.com

Ventana de Vida (Window of Life) is the long-awaited release of Roger Palmer. And the artist doesnt disappoint his admirers. Roger Palmers newest album proves his skill and talent!

The music of Ventana de Vida is very harmonious and moving. Roger Palmer uses Native American motives in his compositions. And Ventana de Vida is real new age; its music is filled with transparency and sincerity. These are melodies from the bottom of the artists heart.

Many gifted musicians helped Roger Palmer create this project. Guitar and saxophone, bass and percussion, piano and synthesizer, Native American flute and trumpet all these instruments are united in a single whole and together they fashion the enchanting aura of the album Ventana de Vida.

Do not miss this excellent release created by the multifaceted and heartfelt artist Roger Palmer!

This is instrumental/world

Awakening

Written By: Janice Palmer

There comes a time when we realize
we all experience ressurection.
Resurrection of hope
Ressurection of dreams
Resurrection of love.
We remember the many lifetimes spent
learning pure joy
learning unconditional love
learning the power of creation.
We remember
unlimited life
fearless flight
effortless transformation.
And sometimes,
surprisingly,
we choose to bring back that knowledge:
Back to another physical lifetime.
Back to this world
Hoping that the
pain,
noise,
confusion;
the sheer exhuberance of physical
life,
doesn't obliterate our remembrance
of the gifts we seek to share.
We would share
transformation,
joy bubbling like cascading water,
love endless as the horizon,
spirit in all things
and all things in spirit.
We would translate this very existence
into the stuff of eternity -
into the golden light of the Universe.
