Daniel Crommie
Quiet Night – Sound for Touch

This intensely rich and full album is an atmospheric collection of eerie space music which takes the listener to the borders of the ethereal worlds with synthesizers and flute improvisations. Quiet Night is the third in a trilogy of multi-stylistic works that include Chrysanthemum and At the Waters Edge. The subtitle is Sound for Touch but the music is more appropriate as background for meditation or creating an out of this world mood (of course, appropriate if you want an out of this world massage!).

The sounds on this recording are varied and complex, with the flute acting as the highlight of most songs. The instruments, which are all played by Daniel Crommie include five and six holed flutes, tenor quena, clay ocarinas, penny whistle, snake whistle, digital and analogue synthesizers, and percussion. In Dark Day the flute is used as a connection between the outer and inner worlds – gently flowing flute notes and haunting synthesizers. Familiar Strangers is upbeat and lighter, like a brisk walk on a cool morning. Wonderful percussion and rhythmic melody. Quiet Night accentuates both intense monorhythmic drumming and flute playing which resembles a bird call. Seven Shades of Slumber features resonant science fiction-like chords, and a shrill flute. Later it changes mood and mellows into long, gentle bubbling notes. Perfect for relaxation and contemplation, this recording would be a nice addition to any healing music collection.

TECH NOTES: Great sound quality, prof. pkg. 1993 CASS.
