“It is cruel…that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness and of pain; of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature, and everlasting beauty of monotony.”

Benjamin Britten

A Review of Mystery in the Mist by Kathy Parsons of Mainly Piano.com

Mystery In the Mist (single)
Diane Wheeler Dunn
2021 / Diane Wheeler Dunn
7 minutes

“Mystery In the Mist” is a haunting single release by Native American-style flutist Diane Wheeler Dunn. I reviewed Diane’s debut album, Quiet Beauty, a few months ago (10/2021) and have been anxious to hear more of her music. On this piece, atmospheric keyboard washes and ambient pads behind the Native American style flute combine to give the feeling of a chilly, foggy night on the beach where no shapes are defined and a profound feeling of solitude envelops you in much the same way the fog and mist do – an experience that is both beautiful and a little bit unsettling. Also a photographer, Dunn also created the cover artwork. Quoting her:

“I am struck by the representation of the misty air in photography with deep depth of field, where the subject is focused but the background is blurred. These are more spiritual images to me; this world is in focus and the otherworld is not. What spirits inhabit the unseen, mysterious backgrounds of our lives? What John O’Donohue calls ‘that subtle world that dwells between things.’”

“Mystery in the Mist” is available from Amazon, Apple/iTunes and streaming sites such as Spotify and YouTube. Both thumbs up!
