Review of Myths and Memories

  Like something from a dream or something whispered and not quite heard, this album stirs vague, undefined, uncoalesced recollections in the mind of the listener.  This is world music differently‹ not driving or harsh or bubbly, but spelled out in rhythm and time that feels more like heartbeats than drumbeats.

Reflecting Conrad's interest in archaeology, Myths and Memories is a blend of time and space, past and present. The cuts are mini-meditations, with elements of many styles of music from many places in the world.  These interesting, unusual musical elements punctuate the relaxing, contemplative blanket of sound with colorful threads of exotic weave.
