About Dean Evenson
In the '70s, Evenson and his wife Dudley traveled across the country with early portable video equipment to document "the awakening consciousness as it was manifesting in people's lives." The couple eventually settled in Tucson, Arizona, and built a small empire with their Soundings of the Planet record company. Their stated purpose was to help people "experience the healing energies of music and natural sounds and get in touch with a more peaceful place inside themselves." Soundings of the Planet was amazing successful in creating and distributing recordings that communicated this goal. Evenson produced many of the label's artists.
Beginning in 1986, Evenson recorded albums of his own that combine natural sounds with his softly flowing flute melodies and various other acoustic and electronic instruments. These records appeared annually on Soundings of the Planet, and he'd sometimes record duet albums with his wife Dudley, Scott Huckabay, Walter Makichen, and other similarly minded artists. ~ Linda Kohanov
