AllMusic Review by

Complex, textured layers of sound weave and unfurl on this newly remastered version of Kenneth Newby's 1993 solo release. Responsible for the primal soundings of Lights In a Fat City and the world beat experience of Trance Mission, composer and multi-instrumentalist Newby envisions and sculpts atmospheric frameworks. Percussion, acoustic instruments, didgeridu, vocal chants and natural sound environments are fused with the suling gambuh, a meter-long bamboo flute that is tremendously flexible in terms of range of technique to create an effective and provacative tool communicating a variety of emotions.
