A new mixure from Electronic, Chill-Out, Ambient to Pop, Trip-Hop and Filmscore with deep levitating and etheral shifting vocals in a progressive way. Many Compilers like Stphane Pompougnac from "Hotel Costes", Rapahel Marionneau from "Le Cafe Abstrait", Dj-Jondal (Martin Unger) and Dj-Nartak (Klassikradio) appreciate and prefer the way and style of Gerrit van der Meer's work and his tracks. Gerrit van der Meer and Ingo Grell are the masterminds of this successful relaxation project "ORBIENT".

So, relax, get some "Echopearls" and dive into the new electronic cosmos of Gerrit van der Meer's vision and interpretation of the music in the 21 century! "Protection and safety; Deep down, all people search for this, a spiritual yearning for peace, and serenity, deep within their souls, hidden but eternal. Sometimes the mind gets lost, and we feel lonely and incomplete. We long, (or yearn, or ache), for wholeness, and to feel complete. Music is a great way to bring the Soul, heart, mind, and body, to a peaceful state. To relieve the stress and anxiety of everyday living, and the heartbreak of the world. To merge the Divine in ourselves, with the rest of the Universe, where everything comes together as One. To open and comfort our hearts, and the hearts of others." Compilation References are: Hotel Costes, Le Cafe Abstrait, Les Ambassadeurs with BrunoIbiza, Globality by Dj Nartak, Martin Bttcher "the score", Deep Dive Corp. and many more
