Album Review

Monsoon Point is about a specific point in time — a point when things begin to mellow and reality is questioned. Thus, Monsoon Point evolves from poisoned sting to pointed arrow. Al Gromer Khan (electronics and keyboards) and Amelia Cuni (Indian dhrupad singing) blend their immense talents to create this ethereal experience. This is a quiet CD, intended for listening alone at night and in the dark. Khan's keyboards drift aimlessly from a smooth drone to distant points in midair. They disappear only to be replaced by more atmospheres or by Cuni's masterful vocals. Those vocals can also serve as another drone or another starting point for the atmospheres. The atmospheres blend seamlessly and become a soundscape of extraordinary stature. Khan and Cuni use their skills to incorporate silence into the sound design. This disc will appeal to fans of Alio Die, Mathias Grassow, Klaus Wiese, Brian Eno, and Darshan Ambient.

Outstanding - A Classic

I've been working as a massage therapist, a Cranio - Sacral therapist, and a Rolf therapist for over 20 years; and in that time there's been only one recording I could stand to listen to in my treatment room for 8 hours a day: Paul Horn's classic Inside The Great Pyramid. Now, thanks to my boss who gifted me with this amazing recording last year, there are two.

Soulful ambient

This is an amazing piece of work - ancient and soulful - it stays still and powerful and beautiful without ever losing the thread into some sort of new age "soundscape". Wonderful music to be still by on a quiet afternoon.

Not what I was expecting

I have only made it through the entire piece once while giving a massage- I find the droning chanting a little too durge-like. I was also expecting more variety in the music, rather than an hour of the same thing.
