When Tropical Sweets® was first launched 25 years ago, it was the goal of the artist to ensure that the experience remained visually and musically timeless. This 25th Anniversary Digital Debut Collector's Edition makes that goal a reality! Engaged listeners of all ages, lifestyles, and interests have discovered their own personal oasis here. This Classical Music Video Adventure offers uniquely individualized access to the rich experiences deeply embedded in the architecture of music combined with the wonder of Nature's imagery. Explore the many ways fully engaged experiential listening can enrich your life as you cultivate a lifelong passion for classical music and Nature!
Anchored by Nature’s visual beauty, your listening artistry will continually grow. Your eyes will naturally fine tune their role as a musical instrument for your imagination while your ears introduce you to an ever-expanding range of musical feelings, nuances, and ideas.
Thoughtfully pairing beautiful Nature imagery and and classical music, the Tropical Sweets® Classical Music Video Adventure is ultimately intended to provide an “Information Age Oasis.” Immersing oneself in the art of fully engaged listening is the ultimate escape into deep relaxation, stress relief, and rejuvenation.
The Tropical Sweets® Classical Music Video Adventure is also designed to serve as a visual bridge to lifelong listening and learning. It can be utilized in a variety of ways as a vehicle for deep teaching and learning, ultimately becoming part of the fabric of 21st century multimedia-enabled literacy and fluency.
The Tropical Sweets® Classical Music Video Adventure can even provide therapeutic engagement, relaxation, and anxiety relief. Here's a deeply touching letter from a parent of an autistic child who found daily solace in his "Information Age Oasis" experience.
"My four-year-old son is autistic and I had to let you know of the marvelous and unexpected impact Tropical Sweets has had on his young life. At home one evening, I had been playing Tropical Sweets on an iPod and I plugged the iPod into our home stereo and turned up the volume a bit. Our son, who was playing nearby stopped instantly, and literally ran over to my side. He was transfixed by the music and imagery. It played through to the end, and then he used sign language to indicate “more,” and also “want.” So we spent the entire evening watching and listening to Tropical Sweets! He reacted by adopting the most serene demeanor. That evening he fell asleep easily (which is no easy feat), listening to Tropical Sweets. If the news prior seems miraculous then the new developments using the iPad and DVD of Tropical Sweets are even more so. Should our son feel stressed we pop in the Tropical Sweets DVD, or turn on the iPad, and he is immediately calmed, most especially during night terror episodes. Immediately, and without even opening his eyes! Additionally, he now falls asleep calmly and gently to Tropical Sweets every night. We play it again when he wakes up in the morning and we’re convinced his stress is reduced, and that his entire day is better. Now, perhaps the most exciting development as of late, when interacting with Tropical Sweets, our son has begun conducting! Yes, he is actually using [gestural] movements, holding a pencil as if it were a baton — keeping time with the music! Bill, children with autism face many challenges, and parents of autistic children face challenges, too. A great burden has been eased by your remarkable product, for which “thank you” seems so inadequate. I’m wondering if Tropical Sweets might have the same effect on other people facing the challenges of Autism Syndrome Disorder (ASD)?
Yours sincerely and respectfully,
BMM ~ April 2015"
