ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Didge Ragas

This music is inspired by the many walks I’ve taken through the forests that we have here in the Pacific Northwest. This direct connection with the natural world has allowed me to drop away the trappings of the modern world and allowed me to open my heart and let the music to come through. So it’s not so much me that makes the music as it is the trees, the soil, the rocks and the decay of the old life to make way for the new life. The themes of Heart Opening, Reconciliation, Peace and Contentment are things that we all long for in our busy lives so allow yourself to experience it in the way you need to. Many thanks for listening to and supporting this music. Listen. Absorb. Enjoy.

Peace,
Pam

About Pamela

Portland-based musician and composer Pamela Mortensen mixes elements of voice, snappy rhythms, dynamics, urban beats and composition to make make music with a most unlikely instrument. The didgeridoo. Solo didgeridoo playing is not an easy task but Mortensen takes the instrument as an organic synthesizer and adds, hand percussion, a stompbox and songwriter sensibilities to make music that is easy to listen to and unexpectedly interesting.

Mortensen draws from her experience as a life-long musician to compose, perform and record both solo and collaborative projects weaving many sounds and feelings from the lyrical to the full on shamanistic trance dance. She takes these songs to stage, house concerts, dance floors and street to share her enthusiasm and love for this instrument.

"I love taking taking didgeridoo to places and people who have never heard it in this way before" she states. "I love showing that it's capable of more than just being a drone instrument. You can compose with it, use it as an organic synthesizer and mix it with other instruments to make beautiful music that can reach deep into people and touch them."

Didgeridoo isn't Mortensen's only tool of music, however. She is also an accomplished keyboard player, Native American flute player and singer who harbors an intense interest in sound synthesis. Her accomplishments include graduating from Cornish College of the Arts and winning a number of awards including two Seattle Artist Awards from the Seattle Arts Commission (1998 and 1999 respectively) and ASCAP's New Artist Award in 2004. Artists she has collaborated include Egyptian tabla virtuoso George Sedak, visual poet, VJ Tasara, ambient trance band Citta Flow, tribal dance electronic musician DJ French Connection and the gifted drummer Alexandra Be. Her song Blu has been featured in the fantasy film the Other World directed and produced by Gisela Pereira.
