Deborah Martin's passion is to visualize and create music that takes each listener on a journey through time and space. With a vivid imagination and a deep love of historic places and peoples of the past, we see her as being blessed; for they are few, those visionaries, who can bring forth into the present, and into our hearts, the spirit of that which has been so utterly lost in antiquity. Erik Wollo grew up in a small mountain village in Norway where his ancestors have lived and farmed for hundreds of years. Weaving through this exotic and timeless landscape of snowy peaks and deep valleys, you can still hear the music of those centuries flowing through a people whose culture is deep, alive and thriving.[ad#post-ad]Here we are: the Jukebox plays the title song of the album "Between Worlds" performed by these two great ambient artists. Deborah shares some insight into the essence of the work, "The American Indian believes there are two worlds - the world of spirit and the world of form. Creating a bridge between the two worlds are ritual, healing and magic. The music process presented here was created to represent with sound this bridge between the worlds." Erik adds, "It is important to hear the voices of the past and how they lived in tune with the rhythm and spirit of the earth. With Between Worlds, we delved deeply into the experience, capturing the feeling of this American Indian heritage with sounds and compositions."Spacemusic.nl says about this album: "swept away from the present into an imaginary world that happens to tell the truth and nothing but the truth"Artist: Deborah Martin and Erik WolloTrack: Between WorldsAlbum: Between WorldsBuy the album on iTunes Store here Visit the Spotted Peccary label hereJukebox copy; 2009 - spacemusic.nl
