Synopsis

Album Description
"Recorded in 1980; Sunborne is a full-bodied, five-movement, symphonic tone-poem with lyrics from the "Emerald Tablets," an ancient text by Toth / Hermes Trismegistus. The recording--using keyboard synthesizer, zither, gamelon, the sparkling hammered dulcimer, cheng, tabla, percussion, and vocals--evokes ancient primordial stirrings and heady futuristic space voyages, watery depths and exploding rays of light. The title cut swirls and blips with inner electronic space galaxies powered by a driving percussion and Demby's centered, hypnotic voice. "One with the Light" begins with the breathtaking and resonant Chinese cheng which is then joined by the plaintive cries of the Whale Sail. Its voyage through the empty, echoing void is heartbreaking until Demby's eternal voice encourages its return to the light. Sunborne is both a feast for the ears and an incredible vibrational voyage for the soul. "-- AMG

CD Reviews

Sunborne - Constance Demby
Ian Marlow | Kenmore, WA United States | 12/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you can imagine the Sun being sung into existance then this is the album for you. Where Ms. Demby's Novus Magnificat flys us through vast starfields, Sunborne brings us home to Earth and the light of our sun. The track "Darkness of Space" gives us the darkness before the dawn and the next track "Lift thine Eyes" gives musical expression to the dawn. A wonderfully uplifting work."
