Album Review

New age synthesist David Arkenstone and his wife Diane are engaging these days in projects that are more exotic and earthy than the fare in David's general catalog. For the same label, they've recorded Trance World and this project, which is presented as a tribute to the peoples that inhabited the Four Corners region of the United States many years ago. Quite simply, these spiritually rich cultures that flourished in ancient times left a legacy of enchantment and mystery — and the music here attempts to capture that pure spirit and energy. It's all quite spiritual, a combination of sweeping orchestral swells, shuffling percussion, flute, and tribal rhythms. But it's nothing you haven't heard on many other strong Native American-themed projects. The opening track, "Ceremony," which shifts from dramatic and intense to a more intimate flute passage, may remind new age fans of Nicholas Gunn's work. But that Arkenstone drama is unmistakable. Most interesting is the way the band blends modern electronica and a truer native vibe. "Dream Catcher" is at its core a duet between Arkenstone's gentle flute and the caress of gentle synth ambience. "The Sacred Fire" takes this idea, adds a bit more percussion, and adds the jangling harmony of Tom Torre's electric guitar.
