Celestine Prophecy

by Christopher Franke
 
Christopher Franke's adaptation of James Redfield's best-selling book The Celestine Prophecy is layered with worldbeat flourishes, drawing from all manners of Eastern and ancient musics. Franke layers rhythms and sonic textures, from African percussion to sampled pianos and high falsetto vocals. By and large, the soundscapes are evocative, even if they aren't

Overview

Christopher Franke's adaptation of James Redfield's best-selling book The Celestine Prophecy is layered with worldbeat flourishes, drawing from all manners of Eastern and ancient musics. Franke layers rhythms and sonic textures, from African percussion to sampled pianos and high falsetto vocals. By and large, the soundscapes are evocative, even if they aren't necessarily evocative of the book itself. Nevertheless, The Celestine Prophecy is yet another impressive work from one of the most gifted and adventerous new age composers of the '80s and '90s.
