Tom Leibel – Living Dreams
Living Dreams is a trance-enducing private new-age album by pianist Tom Leibel from Calgary, Alberta circa 1984. The back of the album states, “all music on this album was spontaneously composed and performed by Tom Leibel. We hope this album inspires you to live your dreams in the same way Tom lives his.”
The album simply consists of Tom on piano with some minimal synth in the background, which makes this a very relaxing album. I play this sometimes when I need to take a nap or just want to rest my head and it always feels therapeutic. Perhaps when I listen Tom’s spontaneous rhythms enter my mind and tweak the very fabric of my mood or maybe I have finally grasped the reason why new-age records exist. Either way, file this under private stress-relief.
