about

MOON AND SHADOWS is a double album of musical journeys written over several years. i liken what I do to painting in sound. I use sound to evoke images and tell stories. The idea is that you imagine yourself into the landscapes, seascapes and spacescapes. The two CDs are presented in a little jewel case sized book with fifteen full colour photographs of places that inspired me then. i wanted it to be something special, a little collectible. Here are a few reviewers' comments to give you a flavour of the album:

“'..nominated for two Zone Music Reporter awards (2016), including Best New Artist. One listen to Moon and Shadows and it's easy to see why. She's a stellar talent already and I hope to hear much more from her down the road'.” - Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter.

“Barbara Hills’ album Moon and Shadows gives us no less than two dozen opportunities to allow our imaginations to work free of our bodies and observe, fly and soar into her astonishing soundscapes.” - RJ Lannan, Zone Music Reporter.

“Moon and Shadows is a very impressive collection and should launch Barbara Hills and her music into the broad field of contemporary instrumental music.” - Kathy Parsons, Mainly Piano.

“Indigo..starry skies filled with nature's wonderment cascade around the listener until the very last portion of the song when it erupts in a vivacious blend of instrumentation as vivid as a painting.” - Dana Wright, New Age Music Reviews.

“Moon and Shadows' has something for everybody and illuminates a full spectrum of Barbara's sound-painting talents..the exquisite artwork adds a great deal to this lovely package.” - Michael Diamond, Music and Media Focus.
