Album Review

Bates, Martyn / Troum – To a Child Dancing In The Wind (Transgredient Records)

shiroi   1/16/2007   A Library

The Eyeless In Gaza vocalist teams with German duo Traum to record works of the Irish poet W.B. Yeats. Ambient, melancholy, vocals like a mix of David Sylvian and a mellow Marc Almond, this has expertly layered, carefully crafted soundscapes. For examples, “Mad As The Mist & Snow #2” is slow, eerie, with long echoing tones. “The Magi” is a strange, horns heavy instrumental like mid perios Eyeless In gaza. Then “I Made My Song” has vocals at the forefront and gets high pitched. Evocative music for disturbances in your meditation. – Shiroi
