Classically trained composer- Synthesist Meg Bowles has been well-known for her ambient orchestral soundscapes for almost 30 years.
Meg’s first two CDs, Inner Space and Solstice Dreams, were released in 1993, followed by critically-acclaimed Blue Cosmos in 1996. A pioneer of the ambient chamber music style, she released From the Dark Earth, featuring David Bilger, Principal Trumpet of the Philadelphia Orchestra, in 1999.
Meg’s fifth CD, A Quiet Light (2011), was followed by two award-winning releases in 2013 and 2018, The Shimmering Land and Evensong: Canticles for the Earth. Both albums were voted Best Ambient Album by Zone Music Reporter. Pilgrimage (2022), explores a more cinematic ambient-orchestral style that incorporates spacious atmospheric textures evoking meteorological phenomena and other poetic elements that form an accompanying dreamscape along the path of a life journey.
Meg’s newest CD, “Voices from the Ethereal Forest,” is her newest and ninth release, a series of contemplative ambient-choral soundscapes inspired by the life-sustaining beauty and mystery of forests past and present.
In addition to receiving airplay over many years on syndicated programs such as Music from the Hearts of Space, Meg’s work has appeared on several compilation albums-The Other World (Hypnos Recordings), Soundscape Gallery 2 (Lektronic Soundscapes), and two albums released by the Mindful Music Association – A Better Life and Focus Zone-Music for Studying.
Meg is also a licensed psychoanalyst, choral singer, and avid gardener. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, Richard Price, a Grammy award-winning classical producer, engineer, and President of Candlewood Digital, a classical recording company.
