Keyboard Fantasies: exquisite New Age music you've never heard

Last Updated on

In 1986, Canadian musician Beverly Glenn-Copeland recorded a stunning cycle of expansive, meditative, and uplifting synthesizer songs called Keyboard Fantasies. Self-released on cassette, that “New Age multilayered synthesizer music to relax, dance and sing with,” as Glenn-Copeland described it, went mostly unheard even as he continued to compose soundtracks, musical theater for children, wrote for Sesame Street, and performed on the Canadian children’s TV show Mr. Dressup. Now though, a beautiful reissue from the excellent Seance Centre label has brought Keyboard Fantasies into the sunlight where it belongs. Above, “The Lake Sutra,” a brief documentary film following Glenn-Copeland, now in his 70s, to Huntsville, north of Toronto, where he recorded Keyboard Fantasies.


Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s Keyboard Fantasies is available from Seance Center on vinyl and, of course, cassette.
