Pseudo Buddha: Motive (CD, 62:18); Uncle Buzz Records, ubr08, 1999 E-mail: N/A Cyberhome: http://www.pseudobuddha.com 10 words or less: Progressive music from India? By an army of 11. Elaboration: As their name implies, Pseudo Buddha is NOT from India but they sure do like the sound of the Sitar. Almost every song on this, their debut CD is a trancelike raga, which is not to say that they all sound the same. The first 2 tracks do both sound like the same tune, an authentic style raga that by track 2 evolves into an ambient lull. Track 3 is an ambient piece with flute and clarinet treatments. Tracks 4 and 5 pick up the energy a bit. I hear similarities to Peter Gabriel's 'Passion' with a little more of an electronic element. The album's closer is a thoroughly ambient excursion clocking in at 18:10 that conjures the ominous atmosphere of a quiet Tibetan village. ~ L. Perez
