ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The best of progressive ambient." - WIRED Magazine

Dogon formed in the late 1980s in Venezuela when North American composer/singer Paul Godwin reunited with Venezuelan electronic musician Miguel Noya. The first recorded outing "Notdunjusta" (1996) was hailed by press and radio alike as quirky, lush and tropically percolating with pre-Columbian rhythms and space-age humor. The album pre-figured artists such as Boards of Canada or Lemon Jelly and was part of the '90s progressive ambient movement that included The Orb, Steve Roach, Jhno, Spool, et. al.
The pair followed closely with "The Sirius Expeditions," (1997) a gorgeous exploration of deep space transcendence. Now after 15 years a reunion has created "All My Relations (at peace)" an album including more songs with words (vocals by Godwin) and special guest performances on bass by Kai Eckhardt (Mahavishnu, etc.), Micro Vard (Club D'Elf, Morphine), Rudy Trubitt (The Sippy Cups), Stephen Yogi on electric violin, Alfredo Garcia on cello. The new work stays close to the original intentions of Dogon, a sonic place for deep emotions - love, loss, surrender, transcendence, and humor.

AllMusic Review of "Notdunjusta" by Jim Brenholts

Dogon is Miguel Noya and Paul Godwin. Notdunjusta is their classic 1996 release and one of the quirkiest discs of the '90s. Noya and Godwin incorporate many different styles into their sound design. This CD has elements of desert ambience, tribal minimalism, experimental avant-garde, and symphonic synthesizer e-music. The fusion of these styles gives the disc a new and fresh feel. Godwin and Noya have not invented a new style; they have merely forged a unique and infectious sound. Listeners will feel the fun and join the festivities. It is very difficult not to smile when listening to this CD. The atmospheres are large, the samples are offbeat, and the rhythms are warped. Noya and Godwin have created a unique adventure. This CD is a classic and an essential element of any e-music collection.
