ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A sight
to the stars,
onto the endless ocean,
a wide country,
into the blue of the sky.

All this seems timeless,
and yet everything has its time,
everything seems to have time,
seems to have a past,
presence and
future.

Maybe nothing matters so much,
as the experienced moment,
the now,
from ages to ages.

A harmonic labyrinth:
The return of the soul
into the mystery
behind our
dual reality.

As ever always.


Having no time may be the lot of our time.

Take your time to immerse yourself in the harmonic labyrinth of these compositions and take a look, together with the two exceptional artists, through the kaleidoscope of sounds of Mikuskovics Baum.

An extremely enjoyable musical experience
Mikuskovics Baum have created a real treat for us with the release of this album right on the winter solstice, and called Timeless. There is another first here as well; this is the first album I have ever heard a Jewish Harp played on and remarkably well too I may add.
So let’s start of on this new journey of peaceful vibes with the longest piece off the release called Timeless Zenith, at just over the 11 minute mark this track gives us the perfect opportunity to get into the mood of the entire album. The Harp is sublime here and a true emotional vibe literally pours from its strings, kudos to Georg Baum, while the flute of Bernhard Mikuskovics has such an imploring tone, one that literally demands to be listened to and enjoyed.
We now move to Intuition Element. The sound bowl here is beautiful, I am lucky enough to have a couple here as well and they always create a nice resonance. There is a delightful progression in this offering that is so pleasing to listen to, the addition of a Celtic harp adds a luscious texture to the overall nature of the piece. This offering would be best listened to frequently, if for no other reason than to pick up all the little nuances inside, like the over tone singing for example, a very fine and incredibly created composition indeed.
The aforementioned Jews Harp is included on this next piece called Mirror Ideal, while Baum performs his usual magic on harp, Mikuskovics brings to the musical table a sublime performance on flutes, namely the Quenacho and Fujara, this is an arrangement that is so very listenable, the melody is one of those that will literally stick in your head all day long.
The pleasure here is that most of the tracks on this album are of a medium form length, over 6 minutes but under 10, this gives us the listener plenty of time to walk among the tones of excellence provided by the duo, one of these moments is this offering which I adored, Emotion Trance. A moody and reflective offering indeed, Baum manifests his classy brilliance on a harp that really tugs at the heart strings, while Mikuskovics pushes that emotive quality to the next level with sublime performances on Native American Flute, Khomus, Horn Pipe and Ocarina, now this is what you call multi instrumental genius at its very best.
The strange thing is I keep thinking I have found my favourite track and when I do so, the very next piece jumps into its place. Life Land is amazing, the tone and mood is set superbly from the off, a sound bowl creates all the energy we need. Baum’s performance on harp here is light and colourful and his fluent and impressive showing here is so very smooth. The enjoyment I obtained from listening to the flute of Mikuskovics reminded me of the early work of UK flute performer Nigel Shaw, in what in my opinion was the lightest offering off the album.
I can gaze out of my window now and look upon the lapis blue of the sea, a winter storm rolls across its horizons, this next offering is absolutely perfect for my midday musings and called Endless Ozean. Here the duo keep it simple and form a symbiotic partnership between the harp and native flute that is so very calming to listen to. I wish I could include the roaring of the thunder that is above me into this piece, it works so well from my reality, but this for me has to be the most attractive sense of musical ambience I have heard for quite some time, simply and delightfully beautiful.
Amazingly we have arrived at the very last portal of this dimension marked as Timeless by Mikuskovics Baum and called Same Source See. After listening to this I couldn’t think of a better way to leave this album than with a track of this quality, one that includes the multi instrumentational armoury of Khomus, Quenacho, Mojave Flute, Sruti Box, and Parmupill. Add to that a timeless performance on harp from Baum and you find a piece that is so very pleasing to the ears, heart and soul.
Timeless by Mikuskovics Baum filled me with a sense of happiness, I realised that with albums of this supreme quality, means the new age music industry is indeed in safe hands. The multi instrumental performances, the smoothness of style and production created for me an extremely enjoyable musical experience, one I know you will have as well, this is new age music at its very best.

From JourneyscapesRadio.com
Mikuskovics Baum is an eclectic musical duo comprised of accomplished multi-instrumentalists Bernhard Mikuskovics and Georg Baum. Marking the duo’s ten-year anniversary, their latest album Timeless beautifully intermingles Celtic, Native American and other world elements to create deeply tranquil atmospheres of minimalist ethnic fusion. Incorporating various harps, flutes, sound bowls and other exotic instruments such as the Indian shruti box and Mexican log drum, Mikuskovics Baum’s melodically meditative soundscapes seemingly paint images of idyllic natural environments. One especially gorgeous piece is “Intuition Element”, with its softly cascading layers and hypnotizing overtone-singing effectively evoking a softly-flowing waterfall nestled within a hidden forest. Enthusiastically recommended, Timeless has quickly become a personal favorite which beckons repeated listens!

Timeless
Mikuskovics Baum – Timeless
Album review by Dyan Garris for New Age CD nd Zone Music Reporter

Luminous and fascinating on a lot of different levels, “Timeless” is a brilliant convergence of improvisation, unusual, thoughtful instrumentation, sensitivity, mindfulness, and magical soundscapes. Long and lush, “Timeless” is a meditator’s paradise.
Each of the seven instrumental tracks is anywhere from six minutes to over eleven minutes of sublime relaxation. This is enough time for the listener to experience and embrace the timelessness of the “now.”

The New Age/World album is a collaboration between Bernhard Mikuskovics and Georg Baum. Bernhard is a multi-instrumentalist, overtone singer, musical and spiritual educator, painter, graphic artist and author. Georg Baum is a music producer, composer, pianist, and qualified concert harpist. Together they are Mikuskovics Baum.

The instrumentation on their album, “Timeless,” includes, but isn’t limited to, a variety of harps, such as Jew's harps, a variety of flutes from the Americas and Europe, sound bowls, small percussion, Sruti box, ocarina, and overtone singing. Overtone singing, is a form of chanting, although that is a basic and completely simplistic explanation, because it is so much more than that. In overtone singing, the voice, and the way in which it is used, becomes an instrument itself; an instrument of sound and vibrational healing.

The album begins with “Timeless Zenith.” This is eleven and a half minutes of seamless, fluid timelessness. The song opens with the interesting meditational drone of the Sruti box and Parmupill; the droning a timeless call itself. Then it builds nicely and evolves slowly into an elegant, fully melodious dance between harp and flute that takes us effortlessly right into the “zone.”

After this we have the compelling and meditative “Intuition Element,” which is nine minutes of mesmerizing “World” ambiance with an Eastern Indian flair as well as a Native American feel at the same time. Here we also get to experience Bernhard’s overtone singing. This song is a quite intriguing combination of Baum’s alluring harp, and Celtic harp, plus sound bowl, Mexican log drum, overtone harp, overtone singing, kouxian, Sruti box, and Native American flute. I find it brilliant.

“Mirror Ideal” incorporates overtone singing again and overtone harp, plus Native American flute, among other instrumentation. This has a wonderful Celtic atmosphere. Light, airy, pleasant, and melodic, and is a favorite.

Following is the seductive and captivating “Emotion Trance.” With its hypnotic Native American flute melody, that evolves sinuously into an “Eastern” vibe and then back again, we can literally feel the call of the ancients deep within our souls. With the Khomus underneath and Georg Baum’s harp expertly wrapping around and through, we effortlessly achieve heavenly timelessness.

The almost ten-minute “LifeLand” makes effective use of Bernhard’s masterful overtone singing, combined with the melodic harp, sound bowl, Sruti Box, and Fujara, Quenacho, Dvojacka flutes. This makes for an extraordinarily meditative composition. If you pay attention and really listen with your heart as well as your ears, you will be able to feel the music reverberating through and opening every one of your chakras.

My favorite song on the album is “Endless Ozean.” The “z” here is not a typo, and may represent the endless, infinite, timeless qualities we ascribe to our oceans. Like the ocean, this has a very healing, expansive feel to it. It’s extremely relaxing, with harp and enchanting flute entwining in an exquisite, eternal dance of life. I found myself listening to it several times. And when I closed my eyes, it was as if I was magically transported to the seaside. Thoroughly captivating.

The album closes out with the eight-minute “Same Source.” The primary melody has a calming, lullaby quality to it. Here we can float right out on a dreamy dream, knowing for sure we are part of the enduring whole.

Recommended for anyone who meditates, anyone who needs to relax, and anyone that wants a deeper connection with life and with themselves. Very nicely done with brilliant nuances, mixes, and instrumentation.
