2002 release. A solo project by drummer/composer Michael Baird. Gongs and bells vibrate, tremble, quake, quiver, flutter, flicker, murmur, hum, throb, ding, dong, peal, ping, trill, tinkle, oscillate, ring and shake. Each one a microcosm, wonderfully recorded, capturing every overtone. The album enters the borderland between ethnic music, improvisation and soundscape without the pretension of being experimental, and where you seem to get liberated from all kinds of musical conventions. Includes an 8-page booklet.
