Album Notes
The third CD release of the seminal Bay Area 4th World ensemble, Trance Mission, based out of San Francisco and co-produced by long term collaborator Simon Tassano (Richard Thompson, Lights in a Fat City.)
"Head Light" features the original quartet of ground breaking virtuoso collaborators:

Beth Custer - Clarinets, Vocals
Stephen Kent - Didgeridoo, Percussion, Cello-Sintir
Kenneth Newby - Balinese flutes (sulings), Digital Atmospheres and Percussion
John Loose - Multi-Ethnic Drums and percussion

with additional appearances by vocalist Eda Maxym and Tavil player Jim Santi Owen

"...a creation of vast, dark musical space and detailed labyrinths full of dream chambers and catacombs, where you can wander through moments that expand, compress, and fold back on one another. ..and if you want, you can dance to it."
Derk Richardson - San Francisco Bay Guardian

"More centered and higher in energy than the foursome's previous recordings, this album transmits more of the feel of Lights in a Fat City, an earlier Stephen Kent band, who's rawness was well-balanced by a 60's transcendental streak that permeates all of Head Light."
Cliff Furnald - CMJ
