David Parsons – Tibetan Plateau + Sounds of the Mothership
CD, Fortuna records, 1980/1982


This 74-minute cd release from 1991 comprises the music from the cassette releases “Tibetan Plateau” and “Sounds of the Mothership” (only the 27-minute track “Voyage from the Mothership” from the “Tibetan Plateau” mc was left out due to time constraints).

Both recordings are what New-Zealand based composer David Parsons calls “his life experience”, reflecting his ongoing passion for India and its culture. Inspired by ancient Indian and Tibetan Vedic songs and the many travels over there, both works are a nice introduction into the fascinating and captivating soundworlds of David Parsons, fusing Indian instruments (Indian harp, tanpura, esraj, sarod and sitar) and various soundsources from India with synthesisers.

The eight pieces are a dreamy and meditative sonic journey building a virtual bridge between the earth and the sky, taking the listener deep inside the celestial realm of the land’s mystic spaces.

Played and nourished at a low volume, both “Tibetan Plateau” and “Sounds of the Mothership” are great to immersive into.
