Barbara Borden is a special performer. She is a world-class percussionist and her solo debut, All Hearts Beating, is an awesome CD. Combining numerous percussive devices, drums, synthesizers, samples, and singing bowls, she has created a monumental soundscape in seven movements. Each movement tells its own tale and each tale is an integral piece of the story. Borden's sound design and production values are flawless. The overtones from the bowls are very subtle and Borden enhances them with drones and sci-fi effects. This is a great CD and a timeless classic.
