Album Review

Ambient yet groove-oriented, ethereal yet grounded with irresistible dance beats, the music of the Canadian duo Mythos offers a perfectly textured balance between modern electronic sounds and ancient flavors that ring timeless. Blending sounds that are purely human and organic (soaring vocals, piano, and guitar) with foundations and atmospheres strictly from the age of the synthesizer, Bob D'Eith and Paul Schmidt achieved international acclaim with their self-titled 1998 Higher Octave debut, which Chart Magazine called "otherworldly." Mythos' latest recording, the similarly provocative Reality of a Dreamer, shifts focus from the globetrotting tendencies of the first album and to a more Western leaning combination of classical, jazz, and pop influences. Producer D'Eith and guitarist/assistant producer Schmidt added the human element to Mythos' sound with the primarily wordless vocals of accomplished jazz and classical performers Christine Duncan and Jennifer Scott (who also appeared on Mythos' debut), and the alternating thundering and subtle basslines of Rene Worst. Each track has a one word thematic title — "Alchemy," "Kaleidoscope," "Venice," "Reveries" — which captures the feeling of the songs themselves. "Vision II" presents a first for Mythos, taking the throbbing instrumental track to "Vision I" and putting actual lyrics (as opposed to wordless vocals) to it. The lyrics were inspired by the duo's experiences filming the video "Platinata" in the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula for their last album.

Genre: New Age

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Canadian duo Mythos synthesize dance beats, various world musics, and new age sensibilities in a manner akin to an Enigma or Deep Forest. Bob D'Eith (keyboards) and Paul Schmidt (guitar) grew up in Vancouver, both receiving classical training on their respective instruments; D'Eith had previously played in the short-lived alternative-rock band Rhymes With Orange. Dissatisfied with the constraints of rock & roll, D'Eith joined up with Schmidt to record more film-oriented music; the result was their...
