Australia: Beyond the Dreamtime is a set of delightful tribal ambience from David Antony Clark. The didgeridoo is the featured instrument and Clark surrounds it with flutes, guitars, keyboards and gentle percussion. Subtle chants and dramatic field recordings further enhance the atmospheres. Clark has a tale to relate and he chooses to relate it musically. This is a sonic documentation of the creation of the Earth and its cultures as described in Aboriginal legend. As the "Dreamtime" unfolds, life begins and prospers, even in the face of danger. This CD will appeal to fans of David Hudson, Adam Plack, Mark Atkins and Phillip Jones.
