How it Happened is not happy or cheerful music, it is consistently calm, sometimes dark and somber. The instruments are all held deep in the glowing sound of the ambient reverberation haze. There are keyboards ranging from what sounds to me like a huge stadium-size in magnitude piano, to a whimsical harmonium, plus an actual accordion, and of course synthesizers, lush and rich in timbre and tone. Each song has lots of extra silence in the distance between one ending and one beginning. There might be just four notes played on the entire album, over and over again like waves on the shore, and they are ample. It works perfectly, just what the medicine man ordered. Relax. It is also good for your blood pressure too. Listen for yourself! Breathe out and soar into beauty. Utterly superb, highly recommended.
