Old post update I mentioned my new age music habit a while back and thought I'd recommend something occasionally: today's is Michael Gettel, specifically San Juan Suite (vol 2). Some of it's a little goofy with whale songs, but otherwise it's just excruciatingly pleasant and relaxing. I spent a summer in the San Juans doing my field school -- you can certainly do worse than that, let me tell you -- and it does rather capture the place. It's mostly piano with some backing instruments. The best track is probably Whisper on the Tide. The Winter CD is also excellent.
