Take a healing dream journey to the infinite expanses of your imagination and sacred spaces within. These beautiful original compositions feature the intuitive and powerful artistry of Ann Licater on Native American and world flutes along with special guest appearances of Ann’s world-class musician friends playing Japanese Shakuhachi, Coral electric sitar, guitar, piano, synths, flugelhorn and more. The music is fresh, artistic and alive shaping a sonic dreamscape with ancient and contemporary instrumentation. Doorway to a Dream is transcendent and grounding, ancient and modern, timeless and of the moment. The last track “Floating” connects perfectly to the opening title track so you can remain in the “dream story” while meditating, journaling or creating.
