CD Reviews

Fourth world excursions
Hans Stoeve | Cremorne, NSW Australia | 10/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Stillpoint is a collaboration between Nick Parkin and Martin Franklin from TUU , and Eddie Sayer from the band Lights In A Fat City. Collectively they play percussion, water drums, keyboards, flutes and computer sequencing. They inhabit the world of fourth world music, whose fore runners have been the likes of the great Jon Hassell, Mo Boma, O Yuki Conjugate and many more. Stillpoint work with textures and processed sounds and a lot of their music has a very dark edge to it that can be unsettling at times. Lots of drones and loops, bells, flutes.The actual recording comes across as very balanced and there are a lot of cultures at work here, merging and evolving into rich organic hybrids of sound. I am not familiar with TUU but am endeavoring to explore their music in the not so distant future, but for the moment I like what I hear. This is contemplative and spatial music, ethno ambient tribal music. Great stuff."
Ambient meditation music par excellence

"An excellent CD that is great for moods of self absorbation. The musicanship is first class and very well put together. I would strongly recommend this for anyone into martial arts or meditation. Anyone whom likes Robert Rich or Steve Roach will really enjoy this group."
