Reviewer: Liner Notes
Michael Atherton is an ethnomusicologist. It also happens that he plays over 200 different indigenous instruments from the South Pacific to create an intriguing and soothing soundscape of 14 original compositions on his recording Windshift. From the flutes of Papua New Guinea to the Tahitian talking drums, Michael takes you on an aural journey that transcends the musical boundaries of the East and West. A celebration of the unique musicality of Asian-Pacific instruments.
Reviewer: Rhythm & Views
Wonderful 14 song set from Australia's foremost multi-instrumentalist and composer. Tunes were inspired by travels in the South Pacific and are played on a variety of instruments including the Polynesian bilbil, bamboo zither and didjeridu which open new horizons in the compositions and telegraph pictures. Booklet includes track by track details. Radio play galore. A listening feast both satisfying and soothing.
