AllMusic Review by

THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL ECO-CHALLENGE was a televised competition in which the regular demands of physical strength and endurance were compounded by the need to have a minimum impact upon the environment.

In keeping with this theme, composer Peter Kater assembles a collection of pieces that draw upon the naturalistic sounds of the native flute and eagle bone whistle, courtesy of R. Carlos Nakai, while layering on ample doses of bass guitar, violin, and saxophone. ECO-CHALLENGE is a brisk album that is probably even stronger when married with the mountain vistas of British Columbia, where the competition took place.
