EONS OF DIGNITY

Cybertribe
(with john Deere)
New Earth Records
2004

Cybertribe returns with a new selection of rhythmic fusion tunes ideal for energizing a weary soul, uplifting a fallen spirit, and seducing a body to the dance floor. Lots of synthesized sounds blend easily with natural instruments ( didgeridoo, flutes, piano) and human voices to delight the ear, and carry the imagination to other times and dimensions.

Several tunes intrigued me -- Poseidon's Gate, although a reference to Greek mythology, has a deceptive Native American sound; Forces of Nature brings together the voice of a baby within a wall of electronic sound, perhaps a visionary glimpse of the joining of human and computer intelligence; and Fairie Mountains brings the world of Fae into the future of electronica, but somehow loses the enchantment of that former world.

Nevertheless, all in all, another delightful presentation from a talented composer.
