Dalaba, Leslie – “Timelines” – [Tzadik Records] (CD)

lombard   9/28/2005   A Library, CD

Released as part of Tzadik’s Oracle Series in October 2004, this is an amazing undertaking by trumpet player Lesli Dalaba. In an attempt to represent a history of the earth Dalaba did extensive research using geophysical and archeological data. She then plotted a timeline of the earth musically (see timesheet on CD and in the liner notes). Joined by Carla Kihlstedt (vioin), Zeena Parkins (harp), Ikue Mori (electronics) and Amy Denio (voice), Dalaba paints an intriguing portrait of the earth’s life, with sounds of water, buzzing, crackling, thunder, static, a march to symbolize human migration, and female voice.
