Music from another world
Paul Petrissans | none | 09/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Inspired by a lost pagan group of French folks called the Cathars and their haunting antique scales, combined with a post-modern conservatory approach, and featuring hurdy gurdy, tuba, accordion, and some amazing clarinet, as well as some antique brass and woodwinds- THIS MUSIC WILL TRANSPORT ALL WHO HEAR IT.

If you've ever enjoyed gamelan or Elektra/Nonesuch releases
If you appreciate Zappa or Roland Kirk type weird scales

And you add some hypnotic atmosperics from the top notch studio engineering, making all these instruments more conductive than I have ever heard them,

and you have a true discovery on your hands."
