CD Reviews

Lots of Colors
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chasm's latest CD Panorhythmica is a colorful as well as musical adventure. The bright but hollow sounding acoustic nylon string guitars along with the jazzy but haunting flutes fly effortlessly above an earthy percussion section. Whether the rhythm of the song drives, grooves or floats, an evocative melody remains front and center... rip 'n' tearing or just senually gliding. The music travels to places warm and colorful, all the while feeling connected from the beginning to end of the album. Gone are trappings of musicians playing too many notes as if they are being "paid by the note" nor is there any needless noodling which ignores the listener all together. Primative and modern, this CD is an excellent example of how goooood Acoustic Instrumental music can be. Every time I've played Panorhythmica in a mixed group of people, there is always someone who asks, "What are we listening to? I like it!" I like it too... A LOT!"

"I haven't heard anything out there on the market today quite like this. I found it fresh and innovative and I really enjoy listening to it. Keep it up guys, there's a place on my CD player for you. World beat will never be the same."
Chasm?s Panorhythmica ? Soulful Sounds for Creative Spirits

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chasm offers an exquisitely soulful and varied mix of sounds and melodies that transport its listeners and excite their imaginations. Chasm's vibrations are timeless; they evoke the spirits of the sublime world of nature, reminding listeners of their own individual and collective archetypal selves regardless of specific cultural origins. This music is trans-cultural - it would equally have found a home with the ancient Méxica-Azteca poet nobility as well as with Enlightened thinkers like Thomas Jefferson or Thomas Paine. Moreover, this music transcends the limits of time and space. Despite its placement in the post-modern world, Chasm honors its audience with music for all time."
