San was originally a private release on Deuter's own label. Like all of his albums, it is an outstanding work of art and worthy of its major label status. It is also -- again, like all of his releases -- useful in many arenas. The smooth atmospheres are suitable for meditation, massage, relaxation and introspection. They are also very useful for journeys across the heavens and through outer space. This disc, in fact, leans more towards the latter venue. The world music timbres have psychedelic properties that complement and accentuate the organic textures. This is a forerunner to the paisley music of Al Gromer Khan and the Tibetan flavors of David Parsons.
