...interpreting the work of one of the world's musical originators.
As one of the leading musical innovators, Dead Can Dance's 20 year musical history inspires fans and artists alike. Shaped by their beginnings in the 4AD/ Darkwave scene and later world music influences, vocalist Lisa Gerrard and multi-instrumentalist Brendan Perry create haunting music that touches a deep emotional chord.
Summoning of the Muse ~ a tribute to Dead Can Dance gathers together eleven of the world's most respected ethereal / heavenly voices / darkwave artists to lovingly recreate the master's songs. At times one could swear this is a live release from DCD, or unknown outtake from their studio albums - the homage is so astonishing. On other tracks, uniquely original interpretations take the songs into neo-classical and shoegazer realms.
