About "Palmer"

Palmer Music: New for the Millennium!

Roger Palmer Artist Biography:
Roger Palmer is a native of the Pacific Northwest. He is a graduate of University of Puget Sound where he received a 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, which has 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 multi media. His current project is "Escape Into America" which is a combination of on site pictures combined with cartoons and video. This is a project created by David Horsey (a two time Pulitzer Prize winner for his political cartooning) and msnbc.com. These six videos with Palmer's music can currently be viewed on http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35920663/ns/us_news-life or http://blog.seattlepi.com/davidhorsey
NEW AGE MUSIC IS FRESH FOR MILLENNIUM

Composer and recording artist, Palmer has released "Lifetimes featuring Millennium Suite" available at Amazon.com and other on line resources, http://www.sonicbids.com/palmer2 and http://myspace.com/palmer.
The evolution produced a body of work that is categorically New Age music, but they are fresh and new, beautifully written and beautifully produced. The melodies and moods fairly glisten from beginning to end. Phrase by phrase, not 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 the Millennium Suite, the recording 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 Floyd's Delicate Sound of Thunder, the music is clearly an interpretive vehicle picking up where words leave off.
Palmer's release of "Ventana De Vida" (Window of Life) is new age/world music that combines ambient sound and crosses over into World. It's instrumental, spatial sounds, are grounded in beautiful melodies and world rhythms. Read an on line review written by Serge Kozlosky:

"Ventana de Vida (Window of Life)" is the long-awaited release of Roger Palmer. And the artist doesn't disappoint his admirers. Roger Palmer's 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 artist's heart.
