The Wood - This is a brilliant and fascinating work, which was first heard before seeing the CD or its case. The electronically produced sounds are used to suggest voices of creatures in perhaps a forest. At other times human conversation is hinted at, whilst tympani is cleverly used to portray differing moods maybe of joy, sadness, anxiety; to set the scenes of action and often is a background to them. A scarcely audible human voice tells of hills and lovely countryside so important at the end. The music of the various tracks cleverly portrays the scenes and action taking place throughout the story being told. This is pure surrealism in music just as Picasso is to art, Dali, Dada and Breton to early 20th century French literature. I feel the composer is expressing ideas from his unconscious mind with dream like images of scenes, people and events both past and to come. In all a very interesting work --Professor Dennis
A unique and atmospheric album of melodic soundscapes and songs using acoustic instruments, electronic programming, vocals and natural/manipulated sounds, organic meets electronic - taking the listener on an emotional, moody, journey through the wood.
