(1993) City of Tribes - COTCD-002
Trance Mission plays original music that alternatively rages, bristles, and glides through a new world of aboriginal drones, ployrhythmic percussion, chanting vocals, processed sample textures, and the looping acrobatics of clarinets, animal horns, and Balinese flutes.
A dark, somewhat jazzy flavor with bass clarinet and space sounds. Excellent percussion by John Loose on a variety of Indian, Celt and American drums. Kenneth Newby (khaen, suling, ghatam, samples, vocals) and Stephen Kent (didjeridu) team with Beth Custer on clarinet.
