Interview with WCMU's David Nicholas

'Sacred Spaces' is an epic recording nearly ten years in the making. Keyboardist and composer Michael Whalen said of his latest CD "I have been pursuing a spiritual ‘awakening' for most of my adult life. Over the past decade, I realized that I am 100 percent responsible for whatever my relationship with a ‘higher being' might be," Filled with sonic landscapes built from hundreds of layers of sound, "Sacred Spaces" is Michael's tour-de-force electronic project, which seamlessly blends his natural gift for melody with fresh textures and percolating rhythms. Deeply inspired by Michael's film and TV work and his love for progressive rock, "Sacred Spaces" is the ambient recording of the year.

Whalen told David Nicholas during his WCMU: Mosaic that it's not a religious record, but it has brought about strong response from listeners during the pandemic. LISTEN
