Echoes... Under the Sun
In a word: Gorgeous! This describes Ophelia
Handberry's 13- song release on Ohklectic Records.
It could be called music to relax by, listen to by
candlelight or be inspired by, because it is all of
that and more!

About The Project

This project was written in anticipation of the new millennium and it carries curious theme of unity and harmony. Since we were anticipating the New Millennium, there are some creative and New Sounds that you hear throughout the project yet some sounds remain unchanged as well. There are African, Latin, Native American and Asian undertones as well as Traditional, Classical, Modern and New Age piano.

Music is it's own powerful universal language that we can all relate to. One of my musical goals was simply to share my very eclectic music with a wide audience. Now, when I look into the audience during my performances and see such a diverse group of people attending the concerts and enjoying the music, I realize the power and appeal of the universal language of music. It's a wonderful experience.

For this project I revamped my studio and worked with many new instruments which inspired new music for me such as Ice 2000, Exotic Spice and the Flute pieces. I was also able to record a few solos on an acoustic grand piano.

Sometimes when we go through transitions in out lives, we do not take enough time to stop, reflect, and be patient. Sometimes we just need to be still and listen. This album relates to how we can thankfully reflect on the past while anticipating the future.

Thank you for choosing to share my music and your continued support.
-Ophelia
