Planetary Unfolding

Planetary Unfolding
(Continuum Montage 1980/Sonic Atmospheres 1981) CD
"Imagine the Earth as a being of sound. The sounds are of all times, its past life mixed with sounds yet to be heard. Now imagine the cosmos as a vibrating living orchestration, with a resonance so complex and deep that we are engulfed by a vast and tender silence." Considered a classic in its genre, Planetary Unfolding was performed entirely on the mighty Serge Synthesizer. From the opening movement "In the Beginning..." we are transported to the far reaches of deep space. - $15.00

Chronos

Chronos
(Sonic Atmospheres 1984) CD, DVD
Michael's enveloping film score to Ron Fricke's pandimensional time lapse IMAX film masterpiece. This is a package tour through time and space, with ports of call throughout the ancient and modern worlds. Michael guides us on an aural journey that is tuned to the time scales and rhythms of the sets... the slow steady march of Nature, the measured acceleration of the Egyptian movement, and the free fall through a window-in-time into classical civilization. Finally, a roller coaster ride of music, as the film careens through Paris, New York, and Los Angeles. - $15.00
