Reaves, Giles

Giles Reaves has been producing solo albums for almost two decades, starting with Wunjo in 1986.

Reaves began recording albums of soothing, ambient instrumentals because a top Nashville producer, Tony Brown, accidentally overheard him doodling late at night in a recording studio in the mid-1980s. Brown invited Reaves to record synthesized instrumentals for the MCA Master Series. The resulting albums gained some recognition among space music fans ("Wunjo" is considered a top electronic album of all time by Electronic Musicican magazine) but received little record company support or distribution.

In 1992, Steven Hill, producer of the nationally syndicated "Hearts of Space" radio program, contacted Reaves. Hill said he still received mail from fans of his show who were seeking a copy of "Wunjo". Since his record deal with MCA had expired, Reaves had a new album of material that interested Hill, and the resulting CD, "Sea of Glass", released on the Hearts of Space label has been his most successful to date, reaching #11 on the Billboard Magazine New Age Charts when it was released in 1992, and spending four months ranked among the most popular discs on the new age charts.

Dave Fulton + Giles Reaves -  The Range

Artist: Dave Fulton + Giles Reaves
P: 2007

Dave Fulton and Giles Reaves met at the "Different Skies" festival. The two of them hit it off musically and, after nearly four years of collaboration, their CD The Range was produced. Why did it take four years? The answer is as complex as the inspiration behind the music. Many of the songs were written during heightened emotional periods as intricate life matters intertwined with the creative process. More practical concerns, such as proximity to one another, provided interesting fodder for collaboration as well.
Songs began as single cells, then flew back and forth over the Internet until they had grown into complex organisms. The ability to let go of a pre-conceived outcome allowed the true spirit of collaboration to fertilize the ideas. A decision from the start allowed for any instrument, tool or feeling to propel each song.
The duo's ability to deal with the technical aspects of a long distance collaboration helped immensely but soon it became necessary to meet and finish the recordings side-by-side. The summer of 2006 allowed the basic overdubs to be completed in Salt Lake City. Afterwhich, long distance mix down began. The result is a diverse but cohesive collection of songs that range from Ambient to Progressive Rock, and incorporate influences from Tribal to Electronica to New Age.

Giles Reaves - Nothing is Lost

Artist:  Giles Reaves
P: 1988

Giles Reaves is a Master of ambient/new age music. A lot of surprises with this particular piece. A lot of Tangerine Dream, Steve Roach & even Frank Zappa style guitar thrown into the mix but it all works out.
A great cd to relax to...meditate to....sit and enjoy a porter by candlelight to....

Here the last copy with a defect booklet, but CD is like new!

Giles Reaves - Sea of Glass

Artist:  Giles Reaves
P: 1992

"Sea of Glass" is consistently tranquil but with an exciting edge, like a really good movie soundtrack, but without the dramatic swooshes. Reeves is much more subtle with his synthesizers than say, Vangelis, and less airy and predictable than Kitaro, and far less pretentious than either.
