Yoga Magazine review:
“Dan Pound has long been producing intelligent multi-layered music, and his CD “Impressions” takes us on a cerebral journey through ambient landscapes. Listing Brian Eno and Tangerine Dream among his influences, Dan has fused electronic and acoustic instruments to create a cinematic soundtrack for a far off world inhabited by exotic birds and wildlife. The tempo gently increases throughout the CD culminating in the track “last impression” which is my favorite.
“Impressions” in an intelligent and engaging piece of work that can be used to accompany yoga and meditation exercises, or used to relax and unwind with at home.”
Review from MusicTap
It is good when independently produced works, those that lack even the alternative label support, spring up and show some bite. Dan Pound, whose self-released Impressions is a collection of Tangerine Dream/ Steve Roach/vidna Obmana-like soundscapes that employ the same spacey sounds, all generated by computers. If a suggestion can be offered it is this, with ambient works, the usage of themes, even if not implied, push the music further and is longer lasting.
Impressions uses an Altoids-like approach in that you can pull out a tune for the moment and enjoy the effect that it supplies.
Dan Pound was classically trained on piano, guitar and double bass at an early age and started writing songs soon after. He went on to be in the local honor orchestra and was soon writing pieces for the entire ensemble. Besides performing and composing, Dan has earned degrees in recording engineering and electronic music technology, and has received credits as 1st engineer and mixer for an indie jazz release, “Crusin’ Some Grooves” by the Steve Wolfe Quartet.
Over the last several years, Dan has developed a home project studio where he does most of his work now recording and producing his music independently. His specialties are ambient electronic/ acoustic new age/ world and soundtrack material.
Dan has earned numerous top 10 positions in various categories on Broadjam.com 's top 10 lists, and many of his pieces have been included in monthly top charts for the FM ambient radio programs, “Secret Music” and “Stars End”.
Dan’s Cd, “Solar Nexus”, was named one of the top ten Cd’s reviewed in 2006 on the review webzine, “Melliflua”.
