Reviewed by i/e, Inner-Views, Muze

True shamanic music: Actual peyote and ayahuasca ceremonies provide the foundation for this collaboration with Ron Sunsinger and Michael Stearns. Not for the weak at heart. The four directions provide a symbolic symmetry to this extraordinary recording. The artists also combine recordings they made together within a labyrinth of caves in New Mexico, adding yet another ingredient to the broth.

1994 Celestial Harmonies 14102 (CD)

With well over two decades of history releasing music on the cutting edge, Celestial Harmonies founder Eckart Rahn had to sort through hours of historically significant material for MUSIQUE MECHANIQUE, a double CD retrospective of influential electronic compositions. His music selection and sequence does not begin to cover the wealth of consequential material his labels have presented over the years. However, this collection does offer a worthy overview of the genre while also giving listeners a chance to experience some classic long–form pieces that travel deeply into the fabric of sound, time and space manipulation that is the hallmark of great electronic music.

Desert Solitaire

1989 Fortuna 17070 (CD, Cassette)
Reviewed by CD Review, Muze

The follow-up to WESTERN SPACES, this time with Michael Stearns. The intensity of the desert's elemental power and allure are brought into focus on this collection of evocative sound paintings. Intense heat and thunder storms, craggy desert mountains, vast labyrinth-like canyons are at the center of this remarkable portrait of the American Southwest, one that the late writer Ed Abby wrote about so potently in the book Desert Solitaire from which the title was borrowed.
