Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

A beautiful miscellany of Moondogg compositions. The overall highlight has to be the glorious "Westward Ho", a depiction of the European migration to America. Written in canonic form, the piece combines sea-shanty vocals (complete with sound effects: creaking timbers, waves lapping against the hull) with a foreshadowing of the yet-to-be-born folk music of migrant America. The latter is provided by some ingenious writing for the viola dagamba, of all things, its tentative, pre-fiddle tones fitting perfectly into this highly evocative music. Other than that, there's a lot of Moondogg's favoured interlocking tuned percussion lines, some spookily passionate choral compositions, some poignant chamber music for a small mixed ensemble and some passionate Japanese recitation which retains its poetic impact even across the language barrier before flowing into an almost reverential musical composition. The disc closes with a long section based on harmonic overtones, long an area of fascination for the composer. Overall, because of this wonderful diversity of styles, this is perhaps the most "commercial" of Moondogg's available recordings--if one piece doesn't get you, another will--so newcomers to his music will enjoy starting here.--Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmonious & pleasing to the ear. 5 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While I'm not normally a fan of electronic music - which I presume this is - I have to admit that this is so different to my normal taste in music, that it is worth having just because it is a very beautiful sound and so different from my other CD's. It has a gentle, hypnotic quality about it, and although it's a bit repetitive in the sense that the tracks all sound vaguely similar, I really can't fault it. However, it is expensive: but no matter, because it will almost certainly be a one-off. Thanks, Radio 3 / Late Junction!
