Haunting, Melodic, Shamanic, Human Music
The soundtrack for "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" by Ernst Reijseger and Winter & Winter is music that invokes the essence of connection, and perfectly accents the amazing film. The film asks, are we really Homo Sapiens, 'the man who knows'? We know so little, truly, and what we know often seems fleeting and superficial. Yet there is a measure of dignity in humanity, especially when we communicate as honestly as the cave painters, and as the musicians who composed and performed the soundtrack for "Cave of Forgotten Dreams."
This is not a "New Age" album. It is in fact "Old Age" in every good sense of the word. Using instruments including the human voice, something rises to the senses that is more than just sound. In fact, it's far from the soothing dribble that many "New Age" musicians attain. Some of these tracks are jarring, intense, and awakening. Some are almost like hymns or the sounds one might imagine the cosmos makes. This is not to say that this music is "sacred" or "religious." But it is spiritual, in that it is deeply human. It helps us tear down the false and cancerous wall that separates "human" from "spiritual," and in doing so, serves to help us see the past and, maybe, the future in the light of hope.
I'm very grateful that this music exists, and very proud to have downloaded a copy of the album so I can listen to the music whenever my soul cries out for assurance, nurture, or mystery. I don't want to be lulled; I want to be energized. Sometimes certain rock or even classical music does this for me; sometimes the blues, or jazz. But always, on each and every hearing of the music to "Cave of Forgotten Dreams," my soul is stirred.
Are We Really that Different?
When I first saw this movie, I wanted the soundtrack. I have waited for some time to get it and it has been a wait well worth the time. Haunting music which perfectly matched the scenes on the big screen is the best description. It what seems like a disjointed chaos comes a sound that touches your soul. It is the deepest spiritual music one can imagine, plucking the strings of a distant past and bringing one face to face with the reality that we must come to a realization that man has only changed in subtle ways over the course of time. The music reflects what I saw on the screen. The art is carried onward by the notes and cords of this beautiful music. The movie is worth purchasing even if it is just to preserve the images that one day might be lost on those stone walls. The music is a reminder of that deep cave and the wonders that are contained within.
See the movie. Be haunted by the stirring artwork 30 thousand years ago, perfectly preserved; and all the issues and questions it raises about a culture that seems far from "primitive." Be awakened. Be stirred. Then, buy the stunning soundtrack that strikes the exact note of astonishment, mystery and connection to our ancient roots. This music is deeply spiritual, like a Shamanic journey--and I'm a Shaman, so I know. It is rich, challenging, moving and divine, just like the cave.
