With its origins in ancient lore, and my experiences among the First Nation people of the enchanted Bella Coola Valley in British Columbia, the Salmon Spring is a flowing musical river of sound -- guideposts on your meditative journey to the Given Wisdom.
A curious collection of instruments conspired to craft you these three sonic neural pathways into the dark claustrophobic edges and glinting high shard-spires of entheogenic consciousness. Remember, no one has ever died from an overdose of The Drone.
Long ago and worlds apart.
Trips over the mountain. Old Stories for the New Age. New Music for the Old Paths.
Singing metals, bamboo flutes, organics and electronics.
Composed and recorded 'twixt Beltane and Lammas 2010
Winter Woods began as field recordings made at our woodland camp in western Massachusetts during the winter of 2009-10. These formed the base for a
three-part composition which was recorded live at Passiflora in New Hartford, CT in February 2011.
This cd is the first two parts of that performance.
