Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2008-08-23 
This single 43-minute track has a jazz/improv feel, combining indigenous instruments (didjeridoo, conch shells) with modern ones (oboe, saxophones, etc.)

While drums are absent, or at least not prominent (I'm writing this from memory without the CD handy), the piece has the feel of a drum circle. It starts in near silence, with faint hums and rattles of some of the instruments, and occasional spikes of sound. More active improvising emerges later, the climax being a long didjeridoo-led segment that's bracketed on either end by oboe improv. It all winds up in a neat little flourish. The early parts of the piece take a lot of patience, but it's worth it.
