Grammy Award winning and twelve-time Grammy nominated Pianist/Composer Peter Kater presents ''She,'' an evocative and impassioned new recording featuring archival songstress Peia Luzzi. ''She'' resounds from within the profound sanctity of life, from the depths of our innermost vulnerabilities and to the heights of our most ecstatic rejoicings. On ''She,'' Peter and Peia celebrate in joyous music, wordless harmony, the sounds of nature and the divine feminine in all her earthy sensuality and celestial mystery.

As he did on "Dancing On Water," Kater had his piano tuned to A432 Hz. The current standard for tuning is A440-445 Hz, but there is a grassroots movement to tune back to A432, a pitch many claim is more relaxed as well as more aligned and resonant with the vibrations of the Earth and universal energy. There is no scientific proof of this as yet, but Kater says that since he had his piano tuned down, he can’t stop playing it and finds himself getting lost in the music more than ever before. It is also noted in the liner notes of the CD that there was no “autotune” or vocal correction used on Peia’s vocals, that what you hear on the album is exactly what she sang as the music was being recorded.
The album consists of nine tracks. There are six unique titles plus remixes of three. Several tracks include nature sounds that Kater recorded at various waterfalls, beaches, grassy meadows and bamboo forests on Maui. The entire album is very smooth, relaxing and graceful, making it an excellent accompaniment for massage and other healing therapies, daydreaming, and any time you feel the need to just chill with some soothing music. My favorite track on the album is “He Searches For Her In the Sea,” a piece that features piano, the sounds of the ocean, strings and percussion (no vocals on this one). It expresses a sense of urgency while remaining fluid and peaceful. I also really like the extended remix of “The Rain Speaks Her Name” where the piano is more “front and center” than it is in the first version. The title track is the closing piece and is perhaps the most ambient of the nine tracks - ethereal and dreamy with a beautiful balance of piano and voice weaving their individual magic together. Check it out!
Kater utilises the vocal talents of Peia Luzzi, to emphasise just what it is to be top of the tree in this modern era of contemporary music, starting with the perfect building composition in She Awaken in the Garden, with lush natural sounds and layered with supreme musical textures in a pastiche of tender musical beauty.
The artistry and splendour of truly amazing tone, continues with the deeply moving and quite beautiful, Her Flames Burns Within Him, this is utterly evocative and wonderfully haunting; Katers performance on Piano is nothing short of sublime, while the vocal talents of Luzzi are beyond anything I have ever heard before.
Tracks like Rain Speaks his Name, which will resonate with every single cell of your spirit, feature alongside the ethereal and all empowering She Whispers in Tall Grasses; they partner a simply divine composition entitled He Searches for Her in the Sea, a track that will move to the very borderlands of your deepest emotions.
Contained within this illustrious package of genius are three remixes of the first three tracks off the album, all brilliantly arranged and produced. We now finish this journey, with the track She, the deep bass sound in the distance, the mesmeric piano, one that sweetly creates a narrative that swims within the sounds of the ocean with ease, the pertinent rhythmic percussion, and the full flowing strings, ends the album in a triumphant composition of departure, one that rounds of the release with great style and panache.
She by Peter Kater is an album that is not one that will just take this genre up to the next level, it’s a release that will invent an entirely new realm of totally classy music, it is abundant with acres of quality performances and oozes a stylish character through its simply sublime arrangements. Simply put, Kater has another winner here, without a shadow of a doubt.
