A soundscape to David Lindsay's science
fiction classic
"A Voyage to Arcturus".

"I always thought that music had no
boundaries, no limits to where it could
grow and go, no restrictions on its creativity.
Good music is good music no matter what
kind of music it is. And I always hated
categories. Always. Never thought it had
any place in music."

Miles Davis

Miles Davis would like this disc. I have
no idea what category this music falls into,
for it successfully bridges the gaps between
Toru Takemitsu, Weather Report, James Joyce
and Pablo Picasso. many different and
contrasting worlds are alluded to, while
the voice of Ron Thomas is always present.
This music sounds very fresh-it's real,
unfettered creativity and imagination in
an age where everything else seems pre-cut
to fit neatly in a category. The element
of surprise is always at work,and the next
move is never predictable.

David Bennett Thomas
