ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ALBUM DESCRIPTION
Idiosyncratic.
Sohre's first solo project combines ethnic folk roots with neo-classical arrangements, creating a landscape of subtle moods and impressions. Besides composing and arranging, Sohre also provided vocals, guitars, piano, percussion and further visual aspects of natural sound effects.

BAND MEMBERS
Instrumentation is diverse, yet holds a common thread throughout. Chris had the pleasure of working with several talented musicians, mainly located in the Northwest (Seattle and San Francisco); Stephen Kent on didgeridoo, Jami Sieber on electric cello, Amy Denio on accordion, several gifted horn and string ensemble players, as well as bass (fretless 5 string and electric 6), drums and loads of cool hand percussion. The final mixdown was produced at Ironwood Studios in Seattle by John Herchenrider, former co-owner of Colorado Concert Sound. His credits include sound provision for many artists of distinct genres, such as BB King, Frank Zappa, Bonnie Raitt, Miles Davis, Leo Kottke and The New York Philharmonic.

REVIEWS
"Sohre composes with a richness gained from international experience. From England and Ireland to Greece, New Zealand and adventures in between, she seeks to unite various cultural voices, blending them with her own style of writing. She is constantly seeking new ways to infuse her music with depth and texture, whether it be with an aboriginal didgeridoo or esoteric modal melodies... Her energy comes from an open collaborative spirit and respect for the varied cultures of her fellow musicians."
- Marietta Szubski - A&E reviewer for Ear Magazine, VH1, MTV

"Ecto-Priority - Recommended."
"The disc made favorable impressions upon arrival, as it has a haunting photograph of a shadow figure in a circle of light illuminating what may be a subway station. A huge number of instruments make appearances on the album, including cellos, trombones, didgeridoo, accordion and euphonium. But the sound is never cluttered. There's a lot of space, but ample texture too.
Sohre is Chris Sohre, a multi-instrumentalist who assembled an intriguing cast of musicians to assist in the multi-layered overdubbed tracks.
The music is really tough to categorize. It's carefully constructed and crafted--a hint of classicism, a pinch of world music sounds, and a smattering of jazz touches. On several occasions I thought "chamber goth"."
- Neal Copperman - Ectophile's Guide to Good Music
