"Ocean Symphony." MCA. $29.95. Like Paramount/Windham Hill's "Water," MCA's "Ocean Symphony" is a video dive into an artfully photographed world of wetness, with no narration on the sound track, just instrumental music. However, where "Water" is "new age" in the best sense something you can use repeatedly to relax and get a taste of nature when you can't get out of town--"Symphony" is only sporadically soothing. Besides some enjoyable footage of such denizens of the deep as sea lions and coral, the MCA tape also features animals that aren't so easy on the eye--including some rather ugly shark scenes. Nothing wrong with being inclusive, but "Ocean" doesn't make it as a nature documentary either. Nor is its synthesizer score up to the Windham Hill music. Information: (818) 777-4315. **
