This recording is a limited production of only 500 copies, so get yours before they disappear! Each CD is packaged with a miniature hand-painted didj inside the jewel box case. What an fun idea! As David wrote "Each one is unique, collect them all!" The CD is beautifully finished with a booklet adorned with Aboriginal rock art, dot painting, and photos. The effort involved was worth doing, because the music stands up for itself very well. It is the result of a collaboration between David Goode, didjeridu artist, and Paul Morin, technical wizard of the sampled soundscape, not to mention a broad assortment of musical paraphenalia. Clearly, David's association with Big Bill Neidjie, an elder of the tribe, inspires this effort. Indeed Big Bill's voice is the backdrop for two songs. When I first heard it, I thought they had frequency shifted this man's voice, it is so low.
The various sampled soundscapes originated in Canada, South America, Australia, China, Indonesia, and Mexico, and in various ceremonies. The cover describes the music as a collection of rhythmic and ambient trance music. I find it to be a happy marriage of the western and Aboriginal musics. It left me with a warm, happy feeling, despite the import of the loss of Big Bill, with the passing of his guardianship of Aboriginal law and culture. The music is not strained or filled with artiface; rather it flows nicely, with a sense of balance.
