Album Notes
"Io: Live at the Ambient PiNG" documents two performances of minimal,
futuristic world music at Toronto's Ambient PiNG. Travelling through these sounds, the listener finds layer upon layer of meaning, moving from ambient meditations to abstract percussive tracks.

The first track, "Calle Ciencia", is a recording of a 2004 Afro-Cuban Dub Duet performance with Michael Marcuzzi on trumpet. Four more tracks were edited from a live recording rare a rare Io solo performance in July, 2005. This performance was a hybrid of the acoustic brass percussion, drum and flute music of Indonesia and the samplers, synthesizers, and effects of electronic music. Stripped down, densely layered, and transformed in the digital realm, the reconstituted sound of Gamelan Mitra Kusuma assumes new, abstract dimensions. Intricate interlocking patterns pulse and recede, gongs transform into analog tones, and the sounds of insects in the night harmonize with the delicate echoes of flutes.

Rich textures
"Live at the Ambient Ping" is a great release for fans of virtually any aspect of "Ambient" music. I like the heavy influence of Indonesian Gamelan and other world music synthesized with electronic music approaches creating rich layers of textures with strong melodies. A really solid release.
