Reviews

  1. Chris Spector, Midwest Record

    :

    “It must have been a race to see who could come up with a set like this first, Oldfield or Bernie Krause. It’s really a tie since Krause would do this with processed nature sounds and Oldfield did it with instruments. Two long tracks that take you where the sun don’t shine (well, if you go deep enough) making something that sounds like an alternative soundtrack to “Apocalypse, Now”. A granola eaters dream session, this set makes you feel like you’re doing good even if you’re doing nothing at all.”

  2. Music Design

    :

    “Terry Oldfield takes listeners on an exotic adventure into the heart of the jungle with Spirit of the Rainforest, an album that blends the artist’s signature flute playing with nature sounds. Breathy, low-toned pan pipes are used to give the music a South American vibe, which permeates the album from beginning to end. Alto and soprano flutes are interwoven as well, with subtle percussive sounds and the liquid-like tones of the kalimba offering a bit of a tribal flair. The album features many sections where the flute is played in short bursts (similar to how a shakuhachi flute is utilized in traditional Japanese music), making the instrument blend with the tropical birds calling in the backdrop. Of note is the second half of ‘The Listening Heaven,’ which brings greater percussion and kalimba into the mix, and makes for a wonderfully exotic sound.”
