Erik Wøllo, Deborah Martin (with Steve Roach)
2009 Spotted Peccary Music SPM9062 (CD)
BETWEEN WORLDS is a dynamic and daring collaboration between widely-respected and well-known artists Deborah Martin and Erik Wøllo. This album delivers from the first track to the last, a profound experience that teleports the listener to a place, or more succinctly, a ceremonial space, honoring and invoking the spirit of the American Indian.
Deborah shares some insight into the essence of the work: "The American Indian believes there are two worlds -- the world of spirit and the world of form. Ritual, healing and magic bridge between the two worlds. The music process presented here was created to represent with sound this bridge between the worlds." Erik adds, "We believe it is important to hear the voices of the past and how they lived in tune with the rhythm and spirit of the earth. With BETWEEN WORLDS we delved deeply into the experience to create with sounds and compositions to capture the feeling of this American Indian heritage."
On site location recordings, authentic American Indian instruments, and sonic soundspaces by contributing artist Steve Roach augment these beautifully composed vignettes, delicately and respectfully illuminating life BETWEEN WORLDS.
