Asher James: Feet In The Soil

 Lisää ostoskoriin

asher james, rummut, didgeridoo,

Feet in the Soil is an. uplifting celebration of danceable energies centred in the earth. Rhythms of an infectious, hypnotic and tribal quality provide the frameworks for the music, which draws much inspiration from Aboriginal and African lifestyles.

James Asher has written and composed many beautiful pieces for Aura-Soma, inspired by his association with Vicky Wall in the early days of Aura-Soma. Although James is well known in the Ambiant 'New Age' music field, he is a drummer! His first instrument is the drums and this collection shows his rich feel and love for the diverse indigenous rhythms of this planet.

So, get to it! Kick off your shoes, and get your feet in the soil.

A leading light among musicians, James Asher displays a talent and joy for playing that make his music accessible and infectious to anyone that hears him play.

Born into a musical family, James was brought up on the south coast in Sussex, England. He initially learnt violin before taking up keyboards and percussion which still remain his favourite instruments. After serving an 'apprenticeship' playing clubs, restaurants and cruise ships, and driven by the need to explore his own creativity, James built his own studio (with the aid of equipment borrowed from Pete Townshend of The Who - James played drums on Pete Townshend's 'Empty Glass' album).

Creating scores for television allowed James to expand his studio and he released his first commercial album 'The Great Wheel' in 1988. It reached the top twenty of the Billboard New Age Chart and several albums later, he continues to build a very strong following with sales for his 'Feet in the Soil' album currently standing at over 100,000.

His music is in constant use on TV around the world, and his studio has become a incredible collection of instruments and technology, from which he is able to create the most amazing 'live' feel to his recordings. 'Raising the Rhythms' displays all the qualities that makes James Asher's music so unique. It is as alive, as fresh, and as full of joy as the celebrations that inspired it. Listen, enjoy and raise those rhythms!

Richardson John: Celtic Drums

 Lisää ostoskoriin

richardson john, kelttiläinen musiikki, rummut,

Captivated by the telling of Carmen's epic tale of Tulan, John Richardson has surpassed himself with a recording that has all the vivid drama of celt legend. John's sensational drumming complemented by the authentic violin of Joe O'Donell and the mystical sound of Uillean pipes' played by Aiden O'Brien. The moods range from reflection to celebration, on a rousing album that in our minds is capable of bringing the misty lands of celtic myth back to life.

Legend of the Drums

A synopsis of an epic tale by CARMEN

In the village of Bradan, Tulan is born. Andiel, king of the leprechauns makes a magic drum from a sacred tree.

Everyone celebrates Tulan's birth, for he is the only mortal child born on the sane auspicious date as Lazelle, Andiel's own, first born. And for- his baby princess, Andiel has crafted an enchanted flute from the same sacred tree.

When Tulan is grown, his wonderful drumming is well-loved and renowned for its joyous and healing qualities.

King Saldeen, a rival Leprechaun, plans to steal Tulan's drum. One day, in a sunny glade, Tulan is drumming his magical sounds for the creatures of the forest, unaware that Saldeen, has set his trap. When Tulan sees delicious berries and fruits along the way, he does not' know they have been placed by Saldeen; and so, upon eating the treacherous fruits, lie falls into a deep sleep. Saldeen then makes off with the drum, and on awaking, Tulan realises what leas happened. By this time, it is nightfall, and Tulan sees the Leprechaun's silvery trail, for the full moon glows her light to help Milan find the Leprechauns' hiding place. While searching, he listens for his drum's voice, and soon comes upon Saldeen's lair. He marches in and confronts Saldeen claiming the drum plays well, only for him. Saldeen is duped and allows him to play. Tulan's spellbinding rhythms exhaust the whirling Leprechauns into a trance and Tulan makes his escape.

Back in the village, Tulan finds hostility from everyone, for the tricked Saldeen has taken revenge by causing mischief. The wells have dried. The crops won't grow. The hens won't lay. All blame Tulan's pride, and forgetting his beautiful drumming, they drive him away.

Learning of his exile, Lazelle plans to find him so that together they may finally end all discord and rivalries. Together, they bring their intention to spread harp cony through their joint music. By night they creep to Saldeen's encampment and play their enchanted flute and manic drum to the sleeping Leprechauns. They weave such a sweet spell into the dreamers' minds, that on the following morning, all Saldeen's Leprechauns are transformed and feel only benevolence in their hearts.

The final, happy scene, sees all the villagers and both leprechaun tribes joyously dancing and merrymaking well into the late hours.

Wisdom of Life The parable of the three greedy sons

A hard working and good-hearted peasant once had three lazy and greedy sons. As he felt his end approaching, he told them that they would find a treasure if they dug up the fields. As soon as their father had died, they hurried to the fields and dug them up completely. But they did not find anything. They stopped in despair, were disappointed and angry. But then they thought it would be worthwhile if they tilled the prepared fields. They grew corn, earned a rich crop and made a stately profit. During the long winter months, they repeatedly reflected that they might not have searched thoroughly enough. So when spring came, they dug up the fields ... again but did not find anything either. Gradually they became used to the work, were successful and turned into honest and modest peasants. Their thriftiness made them rich, and they forgot all about the hidden treasure. It was not before they had to deal with lazy children of their own that they remembered their father's wise lesson for his sons.

Rhytmic music for African Dance, Belly Dance and Dervish Rituals

Music for turning on accumulated energy. With this music, stress and strain can he changed into harmony. As the untrained cannot easily practise quiet meditation methods immediately; a natural beginning is to dance for at least 20 minutes or so to relax inner blockades and strains. After this little "ecstasy.", a rest of about 10 minutes will lie good. Subsequently, enjoy some quiet music and experience a relaxed, harmonious well-being.

Including BONUS CD - Colour Your Life

Oreade's COLOUR YOUR LIFE COLLECTION is an introduction to the present day music of healing, mantras and relaxation. Music that will please and refresh you. Through deep relaxation the music will give you new energy, enhance your performance as well as your well-being. Oreade's music can be an effective antidote against the stress of modern everyday life.

Music by: Karunesh • Aeolias • Sherazade • Llusha • Enam • Catriona • Chris Micsell • Sarva-Antas • Sangit Om • Berglund • Bhakti Music • Gomer Edwin Evans • Sirajit Das • Authentic Mantra • Abida • Nomad • Cheiya • Chamal • Michel Pepe • James Asser & Arthur Hull • Medwyn Goodall • Our World's Sounds

World´beat artist James Aher joins forces with Arthur Hull, the celebrated american drum circle facilitator and drummer. Following a visit to the ancien site of Stonehenge, the sence of power and mystery of the stones sparked off their creative music. Sounding the Stones goes beyond your normal drum based music. Harp, keyboards, hammered dulcimer add depth and evoke rewardingly maditative vistas.

ARTHUR HULL

Considered by many to be the father of the American drum circle movement, Arthur&%39;s ebullient fun personality was immediately very striking. Extremely knowledgeable not only about drums (he formerly had a business manufacturing them) and also about how they can be used in different communities to enhance spirit and wellbeing, Arthur is also a fine drummer. I have been lucky enough to see him in action as a drum facilitator in several different contexts, and have repeatedly marvelled at the playful mischievous elf quality he brings to a wealth of diverse gatherings. Through working with a broad palette of international drumming friends and thus coming to learn the structure of many ethnic rhythms, he has acquired a very interesting musical understanding.

He has also designed his own signature series drum for Remo - the &%39;ashiko&%39;. This happens now to be my personal favourite drum, as it combines a glorious &%39;slap&%39; quality with a very engaging bass tone. He designed and intended this drum to be culturally non-specific. That is to say it is open to anyone to enjoy, regardless of what they may or may not understand in the way of any particular cultural style or form of rhythm - a sentiment and idea I heartily applaud.

A dulcimer provides a great bridging between the worlds of percussion and melody. We both enjoyed playing this, and on occasion we would alternate in writing musical lines on it, one answering the other, which knit together to form a pleasing musical tapestry.

Arthur has always been fascinated by Stonehenge, so much so that he has a replica of it in the waterfall area of his garden. Together we made a visit to the site, and this inspired much of the music to be heard on this album. The quality of apparent timelessness and mystery pervading these mighty stones cannot fail to engage the visitor with their unique magic.

He is recognized as a pioneer in bringing the drum circle experience to schools, corporations, and conferences. From Moscow to Australia, he has used his Village Music Circle metaphor to build and teach team spirit and a sense of community. Arthur Hull is also a Remo signature series artist and has taught ethnic dance and percussion at the University of California at Santa Cruz since 1979.

His newly released book and CD, &%39;Drum Circle Spirit, Facilitating Human Potential Through Rhythm&%39;, is the culmination of his years of rhythmical evangelism and group facilitation around the world. He is also the author of the video/book &%39;Guide to Endrummingment&%39; and has received the &%39;All One Tribe Foundation&%39;s Drumming Education Award&%39; and the 1998 &%39;Drum&%39; Magazine title &%39;Drummie of the Year&%39;. He has facilitated drum circles and rhythmic alchemy playshops at the &%39;Association of Humanistic Psychology&%39;, &%39;Association for Music Therapists&%39; and many other alternative healing conferences, and has appeared on the covers of the &%39;Wall Street Journal&%39; and &%39;Yoga Journal&%39;. Within the corporate environment, he has facilitated interactive rhythmical team-building events for groups ranging from 20 to 6000.

JAMES ASHER

I Love experimenting with the new technology, and exploring its amazing possibilities – both for my own workand in pproductuction capacity for othet artist.

I&%39;m also fascinated by dance and theatre, and am trying to find ways to integrate th e areas with my music.&%39;

Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

I learnt violin from age seven, and my father taught the choir and orchestra at my school when I was a teenager. Following my education on violin - which was traditional - I taught myself keyboards and drums, and have always been quite fascinated by the whole recording process. After working in studios to gain some technical skill, I set up my own studio, which has evolved through different configurations over the years. Starting with soundtrack music I recorded over twenty albums, which gave me the chance to explore, creating music for a wide range of differing moods and visual situations. Then I moved on to concentrating more on commercial albums, which have been mostly in two styles - worldbeat and space music.

Nanigo: Drumming For Elements

 Lisää ostoskoriin

rummut,

On 'Drumming for Elements' we hear 20 enthusiastic male and female drummers performing rhythms of the great drumming cultures and tribes. Directed by Thomas Ritthoff (Walking with Sound) the listener will enter a dynamic journey to the energetic qualities of the five elements. The voices of the drums weave into stories and soundscapes, powerfully danceable as well as movingly meditative. This music perfectly suits Trance Dance, working with the 5 Rhythms, Contact Improvisation and Free Dance. The order of the tracks follows the structure of the Native American medicine wheel.

Drum and percussion music for dancing, dwelling and dreaming

Listen to Another Drum is an African expression which translated into English would have the same meaning as "view things from a different angle".

This CD is made "interactive". I have made some suggestions for programming different paths through the music, seven in all.

Each path has its own poem, expressing my thoughts and feelings and eventually the philosophy behind my use and understanding of rhythm. Music and poems combine images, moods, stories of drums and drummers, and stories of complexity of rhythm itself, presenting a mirror of society, - life and man.

I hope you will sense this CD as a sculpture, which changes according to its surroundings and the viewer's angle, and that you will let your mind and body be moved by the changing sentiments of the music.

rummut,

I have given "Drum Scenarios" an interactive touch. As on my previous CD "Listen To Another Drum" you now have the possibility to either listen to the CD as is, or program your CD or media-player to play the tracks in different order and through this have new experiences with the music -- like looking at a sculpture from different angles and in different light. I hope you will let your mind and body be moved by the changing sentiments of the music and that you will have a pleasant and interesting journey through the various scenarios.

I've made 3 suggestions:
Dancing # tracks 8, 5 and 9. Time: 31,43 minutes
Dwelling # tracks 4, 3, 6, 1, 7, 2 and 5. Time: 46,14 minutes
Dreaming # tracks 9, 7, 3, 8, 4 and 6. Time: 35,29 minutes
