Reseña de álbum

From new age percussion master Glen Velez comes this album designed to allow for a physical and spiritual experience via the forces allowed by the controlled breathing, overtone singing, and rhythms of the music set. The vocals are supposed to activate the upper body, the melody activates the central region, and the drumming and breathing are to activate the lower body. To further this, the pieces are created in a rhythmic pyramid form, to reflect the "elemental structure" of the music. Despite the seemingly overwhelming amount of new age rhetoric involved in the formation of the music, Glen Velez is rightly regarded as a master percussionist, primarily on the various frame drums. Here, he performs the proper rhythms exquisitely, with accompaniment on the panpipes, and surprisingly enough the cello from time to time. A nice inclusion to the album is the use of khoomei singing of a basic sort, with the overtones accompanying the music relatively well. It's a decent mix of sounds, but the conceptual framework for the album nearly washes out any musical goodness on its own. On purely musical terms, the album isn't bad, though there are a multitude of similarly pitched ones competing with it.
