Overview

Blending synthesizers with environmental sounds and acoustic instruments from around the world, Stephen Bacchus takes us on a musical journey through the mists of prehistory to the vast primordial landmass of Pangaea, a mythological continent that gave birth to all the continents as we now know them. The album opens with a neo-classical harp-based track, featuring co-producer/flutist Ron Korb, before slipping into the reflective Eastern modal scales that characterize most of the album. Watery Javanese gamelan gongs, shakuhachi flute, lyrical koto, steel-bright sarod, glistening santur dulcimer and tabla join with lush synths, piano, oboe, flute, running streams, sweet birdsongs, and ocean waves to create exotic landscapes of lingering delicacy. Like a memorable vacation in the tropics, Pangaea leaves the listener relaxed, refreshed & inspired by its vision of shimmering beauty. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
