Album Notes
A journey through the undiscovered and uncovered. Come travel through worlds of light and shadows, dark and deep, bright and swirling where sorcerers tell their tales, instruments have a lighthearted conversation and dragons fly for the shear joy of it. From the skirt of a whirling dervish to the depths where the stalagmites grow, Doğum is the portal where old/new stories begin their life.

These are tales as told through the didgeridoo, voice and other surprises by Seattle artist Pamela Mortensen. One by one, Mortensen releases these creatures to exist where no others can. But don't be fooled for they are not all heavy creatures. Some are lighthearted like "Why Not?" in all of its jazziness while others like "Out of Nowhere"take you to the farthest reaches of the kosmos where nebulae burn brightly with the promise of new stars.

Inspired by elegant Middle Eastern and rich Eastern European rhythms as well as urban beats, each finely crafted piece in Doğum differs from the last in a collection that is rich with ideas that pulls the listener along.

The following is taken from the liner notes of the album:

I go inside these tubes
and get lost in the vast space,
this micro-universe

Each channel, bump and gouge
holds its own song,
waiting for breath to release it
into the larger universe

Lips meet wood,
body meets instrument,
breath meets cosmos
to birth these creations that come from nowhere
and go out into the everynothing.

I am that little being who is all
at once breathing into and
standing at the edge of this
world. Listening and playing at
the same time to sounds that are sometimes
soft and sweet
sometimes massive and ovewhelming

Vibration meets soul and
reverberates from the
center to the farthest edge.

I tumble
I travel
and turn
in this heaven of the deepest earth
