Album Notes
"Now your journey begins Let yourself go and follow me to mysterious and spellbound places, where a soft fog wraps everything and everything hides its real appearance Magic landscapes and enchanting ruins which tell a story of a thousand centuries ago. My music will lead you there, in the real, deep meaning of the wonders that live in the lands where fantastic creatures dwell and where you will choose to stay, cause the charming melody seems never to end
In this amazing cd you ll find such tracks as Lothlorien, Treebeard, and Rivendell ; all songs composed and performed by KeyeS, who has taken his inspiration from the trilogy of The Lord Of The Rings.
Join us through the Middle-Earth, come with us and meet Elves, Wizards, and Dwarves, fight with us for the freedom of the good ones, and help us to destroy the One Ringwe are waiting for you.

REVIEWS

I listened to the film music samples. By far the best for me was the Rivendell one it has personality, and a good melody. "

Rolfe Kent (Film Music Composer)

"Your music works very well. You use of orchestral sounds is good. I especially like the Lord of the Rings track."

Guy Gross (Film Music Composer)

"Had a listen to the piece and was very impressed. I'm a secondary school music teacher and so I know what I'm saying when I say that it evokes images of Tolkien's book precisely. It is very 'moody' and 'sinister' and uses good instrumental texture to evoke these feelings. Well done !!! "

Graham (Music Theacher)

"I was visiting your site and had a listen into some of your tracks and i am very amazed from what i have heard,because you are a very
talented artist !! it would be a nice think when we find the possibility maybe to collaborate with eachother sometimes...yeah..it will be a very coll albumi think !"

Amir Baghiri (Composer)

"...The twelve tracks show his excellent command of the instrument, both for the effects and for the arrangement choice...Kristian has got a good ability to create emotional environments, so he could be suited to compose soundtracks or at least music for images."

Review of CD "No Drugs or Nuclear weapons allowed inside"
by Italian Magazine "Metal Shock"

Sounds from Middle Earth_ is an eclectic work, embracing a variety of musical styles to evoke selected sites along the cursus of the trilogy. Although some of the pieces strive for an “orchestral” sound through recourse to electronically generated analogues, Sensini is most successful when he makes a virtue of simplicity, concentrating on the gradual, unadorned development of melodies. The result is a meditative journey that gently invites the listener to participate in the imaginative process. Sensini's minimalism is also effective when he introduces ambient background noise, which adds an appropriately unnerving feel to his “One Ring” theme. The same can be said of “Mordor,” an entirely percussive piece featuring an eerie electronic reverberation that sounds like it came from a John Carpenter soundtrack. With “Lothlorien” Sensini takes an unexpected turn to world music, with ethnic drums and other interesting acoustical accompaniment to his flute baseline. My first reaction to this was “That doesn't sound like Lothlorien.” Then I reconsidered: “At least it doesn't sound like every _other_ synthesizer-laden Lothlorien song I've ever heard! Sensini's originality turned out to be quite refreshing.
"Beyond Bree" Tolkien Fanzine

Eccolo, si ancora lui, Il Signore Degli Anelli.Chiudi gli occhi e ti sembra quasi di sentire il suono di quel viaggio: la Contea, Minas Tirith, il Monte Fato…Sembra quasi un sogno, ma per qualcuno diventa anche realtà: ecco questo è il viaggio di Frodo visto da Kristian Sensini intitolato Sounds From Middle Earth a cui a lavorato per 4 anni.Tra note di un pentagramma,avanza tintinnando sulle gocce dei tasti di un pianoforte il cerchio dell’Anello maledetto. Le forze di Sauron si avvicinano, mentre i canti e la gioia dei respiri dei flauti della Contea si tingono a festa per Bilbo,ma l’ora di partire è gia vicina e tra la tranquillità di Rivendell e il canto d’augurio dei tamburi di Lothlorien. È tempo di andare e tra una nota e l’altra le strade di elfi,hobbit, uomini e nani si divideranno: ognuno per compiere la sua missione sulla strada ci saranno a amici e insidie da affrontare, una grande tempesta prima di giungere ai calmi Porti Grigi… Quello di Kristian Sensini è un raffinato viaggio strumentale nel mondo tolkeniano: una grande epopea riassunta sulle note di 9 brani strumentali che mescolano musica classica e tradizione celtica in una miscela che riesce a donare un grande senso visivo di ogni nota, basta chiudere gli occhi e veder scorrere davanti a sé tra melodie di flauto traverso e pianoforte tutta la magia de Il Signore Degli Anelli.

Fantastic storytelling
I had the luck to buy this CD during an interceltic festival (do not remember which one: quite some year is past since that day), initially attracted by the tile (dedicated to Tolkien and his masterpiece). The movie trilogy was yet to come, but I am a collector of Tolkien's memorabilia since 1984, when I first met his books (and I was an early teen in love for good epic fantasy and so on). This CD has the charm of a storytelling and the poetry of a vagabond bard who goes from village to village playing the news and the novels, and I loved it since the very first liesten. Now I met it here on CDbaby by chance once again and since is a CD I love, could I just skip to write ssome deserved compliment?
This CD contains good inspirations, an original style and a good songwriting, together with an acoustic charm that made me fall in love.
So, some deserved compliment is coming from Torino... :-)

great CD
I love this CD! - I listen to it at work all the time. It's nice background music without being "muzakky". My favorite track is "The Shire". I'm looking for more good things from this artist.

Incredible!
I have to say, I was very impressed when I listened to the tracks. I think they very accurately depicted the mood and setting implied by the name. Beautiful music.

Sarah Rossel

A storyteller
Keyes is a talented musician and this cd proves his great musical skills. Sound from Middle Earth is a work of art, each track tells a story inspired by the masterpieace written by Tolkien. It's a journey through the Middle Earth in which Keyes guides you by using soft and dreamy notes. It's well orchestrated and arranged. It's something you should listen up. Highly reccomended.

Alisson

Wonderful music inspired by Tolkien
This music truly is inspired by Tolkien. I could see the images of his story right before my eyes as I listened to the music. I absolutely love it!
