Phoenix musicians Tom Moore (aka Voyager Tom Moore) and Sherry Finzer have interwoven their individual music talents together to create and record an “outer to inner world” musical journey aptly titled Whispers from Silence.The album was designed to help facilitate a deeply meditative experience for the listener using sound and silence. Tom and Sherry create audio imagery with exotic and unpredictable sounds, which unwind slowly and gracefully utilizing wind instruments and synthesizers. The result is a sound that seems ancient, yet sensitive, distinct and relative to the world today. The music on Whispers from Silence encourages deep relaxation, inner peace, and awakening to the spirit.
