Emergence Music - EveryOne 432
(Self-released CD; 2002)
EveryOne expresses the joy of life in a way of a symphonic-oriented instrumental poem which lasts for over 70 minutes. The composer, David McCarthy from Washington State, is first of all a flutist who also knows his way in implementing electronic layers of sound and worldmusic-elements and mix them together in a lyrical and inviting way. He has been able to transform his fascination for the gift of life and nature that surrounds us in a way that is admirable. In several passages it made me think of the former '80 and '90-albums of Austrian Musician Gandalf, but carrying lots of more flute overall. The 6th track is the only (female) vocal track.
Soundquality and production are awesome for a self-released cd. This one is more than a good investment in nowadays contemporary instrumental music.
Everyone 432 by Emergence Music" is an excellent ambient/new age CD that we just recently added to the Astreaux World collection, and a few songs from the CD are in rotation in our Live365 station.
