Album Notes
For an artist, a compilation of a body of work is Unavoidable. Since 2002, Tartanic is on a mission to “make bagpipes cool” to a vast cross-section of people, and not just to those with Scottish heritage, but to many diverse ethnicities
and peoples who, in turn, embrace this union and pass it forward as our music transcends generational barriers now.
Tartanic has always striven for the evolution of the “old” becoming “new” with the first tracks on All Abroad, a home-burned CD, with “Glasgow (Ultra-Catalyst Mix)” to“Insurgenge”
from Uncivilized; our latest studio effort to date—offering both contemporary dance-rave and traditional sonic endeavors. The future is to bring bagpipes to a more
palatable level in these multiple genres while maintaining an homage to what has come before us. Lindsay Davidson, whose composition “Sorrento” appeared
on All Abroad, was produced in Poland with full orchestra and granted radio airplay for the concert. Years later, Tartanic played “Sorrento”performing
as a trio of musicians for a 9/11 Tribute, with a professional Union orchestra present for the ‘year and day later” event. From this example
to many others (whom we won’t mention here for fear of leaving someone out) fusing rhythms of South America, the Middle East,
Africa, India and even high-voltage electricity with high-tech audio effects to prove that bagpipes are at long last
launched into the collective consciousness of the human psyche as a collaborative instrument of melodic
musical innovation rather than a stand-alone novelty. It is the goal (mission) of this compilation
to not only reward all of Tartanic’s long-time fans, or even to develop and educate
the new audiences we meet…but to best present an anthology of
groundbreaking music; an evolution immortalized on
the independent music and worldwide map
for recording a range of sound
that is unmatched
by many and
for all.
