ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Six instrumental duets by the SoundMoments duo celebrate the lyrical, spiritual, and sensuous sides of nature on the Northern California Coast.

This evocative, African-inspired music by Robert Bornn (on Xylimba and drums) and Laura Worth (on alto recorder) is for dance and peaceful relaxation.

SoundMoments(tm) Duo
Robert Bornn and Laura Worth

Robert Bornn is featured playing Xylimba and hand drums on this CD, Ocean's Edge-Spirit's Journey, which he also directed, filmed, and produced as a DVD (available at www.seadriftmedia.com). He has also recorded piano for Here and Now, the second in his CD/film series, Ebb and Flow.

Robert first learned hand drumming in the 50s on the streets of New York City. He was later influenced by the West Coast Congolese and West-African master drummers he played with. Creating original percussion music for more than four decades, he also founded DIAJ (Drummers in a Jam) for San Francisco Bay Area drummers and dancers in the early 90s.

In 1997 Robert wrote, directed, and produced "Sweet California," an African-inspired performance of original and traditional music and dance, including his original ballet, "California Suite." In 2001 he wrote, directed and produced "The World Is You," an original World Beat music and dance performance. He was the founding director of DIAJ performing group and producer of the DIAJ CD, Pangaea: Old World New Visions. In 2003 he founded SeaDrift Media Productions to produce and distribute his film, art, and music. In 2009 he produced the 2-CD album, Mouyami, including his featured performances with the late Ma Boukaka, Congolese American entertainer, teacher, and inspiration for generations of dummers.

******

Laura Worth is featured playing alto recorder on this CD, Ocean's Edge-Spirit's Journey, with Robert Bornn.

Laura Worth played the recorder in the 70s for personal enjoyment and to entertain her friends. In the early 90s she learned the basics of African-inspired hand drumming from San Francisco Bay Area teachers. She cofounded DIAJ (Drummers in a Jam) with Robert Bornn to foster development of a local music community based on African-inspired music. In 1998 she began improvising original melodies on the alto recorder for their DIAJ performing ensemble.

She performed in and co-produced the "Sweet California" ballet in 1997 and "The World Is You" World Beat music and fusion dance event in 2001. She performed and recorded with DIAJ, including her featured performances on the DIAJ CDs, Pangaea: Old World New Visions and Mouyami.
