ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music To Help You Escape
======

What people are saying:

"Meditative and enveloping, the title track, as well as tracks like "Chasm of Faith" seem almost holy, not unlike what one might hear upon entering a mystic temple. Anything but your standard ambient fare."
- E. David, From Dust


"Soothing and choral in a 'monk' kind of way..."
- Bret Hart, The Unheard Music


"Each track on this album has its own individual quality. Sampson's ambient vocals, like those of the German Stephen Micus, have no words, just meaningless syllables, or no syllables at all. Sampson produces an impressively wide variety of sounds; he can hum, croon, moan, chant like a Tibetan monk, chant like a Western monk, or sing high counter-tenor. And in the weirdly juxtaposed "Great Lakes Chain Gang," he sounds like an improbable white Aborigine singing the blues."
- Hannah M G Shapero, Eclectic Earwig Reviews


"While trancelike in style, Embracing the Glass generates a compelling tension that belies its soothing sound."
- Scott McLennan, Worcester Telegram & Gazette, MA


"An alloy of electronics and voice that offers a stunning semi-dark excursion into starkly beautiful soundscapes suffused with humanity."
- Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire


"... like the soundtrack for a foreign film."
- Brian Goslow, Minister of Culture, wormtown.org

Drift peacefully....
Listening to Mandala for Chaos just takes you away, allowing you to drift for a while, sometimes peacfully, sometimes introspectively. Excellent!
