Echoes Of Nature IV
Genre: General/Experimental
Review: Fabulous! Local artist. If Stravinsky had access to computers & electronics, it could have sounded like this. The sounds of nature are referenced electronically for the most part, but there may be some actual recordings mixed in. Grammy-winning violinist Mads Tolling from Turtle Island String Quartet provides accompaniment. Very psychedelic. Don't be put off by the same title on many tunes (each one is different). Just put on your headphones, sit back, and zone out! They performed at Day of Noise.
