We get fancy and call it acoustics when it refers to manmade structures such as a rotunda, an opera house, a tomb or temple. The magical resonance of sound can be something we discover in even the most mundane of places -- the shower. On this collection of soundings you will travel through 17 tracks of out-of-the-studio recordings from all over the planet. Stand within the Taj Mahal, drift up deep inside Great Pyramid, meditate in The Temple of Heaven of China, sail the Sydney Opera House, hike to Angkor Wat in Cambodia, wander tombs, abbeys, cathedrals, mosques, and relax at Echo Canyon, New Mexico. Go visit all these places to hear voice, reed, brass, organ, flutes, and traditional musics each coming alive in their locationally unique ambience. Much of the journey is meditative, introspective, and inspiring. On this voyage you will learn the language of space -- the timbre of the eternal Void's voice. Be prepared to acknowledge the presence of grandeur. A 28-page CD booklet nicely charts your path. Bon voyage! ~ John W. Patterson
