Description

Fire Within on CD

This music is a blend of ambient electronic, tribal/techno, world, new age space music. (Brian Eno meets Steve Roach and Vidna Obmana.) At once primal, dark, daring, and aggressive, this work is also filled with beauty and passion, and it takes aim straight for the heart. It is pure, vital and alive. There are no limits here. You envision your own Space while you listen. This music is meant to help transport you to deeper and darker places to find the Fire Within. Ethnic Percussion and tribal world beats are met with Native American flute, didgeridoo, ocarina, guitar, vocal chants, synthesizers and programming. ----------------------------------------------------------- Review of 'Fire Within' by Dene Bebbington for Ambient Visions: Coming thick and fast from Dan Pound are his ambient/shamanistic fusion albums. Another recent work is Fire Within, a slightly less intense exploration of Dan's now signature style and sounds. For me these works often conjure up images of the Australian outback and aboriginal rituals around fires in the darkness of night. A particularly atmospheric piece is the opener "New Beginning" where drawn out chants conjure up images of American Indians supplicating to their gods. The haunting nature of this piece is increased by eerie pads, whistles, and occasional low growls of a didgeridoo; while a rolling rhythm of bright notes gives a sense of being on a journey. The resonances throughout the album are often deep and throaty. A guitar effect is introduced on "Carrying the Flame" in despondent refrains giving a feeling of dusty plains and tumbleweeds blowing by. A centre stage throbbing rhythm comes in along with various pads whistling across the soundfield, and animalistic effects inhabit the backdrop like wildlife seen from afar. No album with shamanistic themes would be complete without at least one especially hypnotic piece. Here it's "Calling the Spirits" in which percussion like shaken sand combines with hallucinogenic drum rhythms, atavistic chants, and pads worming their way round the soundscape. Listening to a Dan Pound album is to take a journey back to mankind's earlier days where unspoilt landscapes provide a home to people whose lives revolve around survival and placating the spirits and gods. The integration of modern electronics with voice, didgeridoo, drums, and natural percussion is seamless, lifting both above what they could have otherwise been. In Fire Within Dan Pound manages to explore similar musical territory to his previous releases yet still subtly develops his style enough to retain listener interest. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
