Deborah Martin – Under the Moon
CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Spotted Peccary Music, 1995


Deborah Martin is one of the talents within the Spotted Peccary community who would create an atmospheric ambient world of her own in later years. Previous to this debut-album, which further expresses her ongoing passion to visualize and create music that takes each listener on a journey through time and space, Deborah showed up on the label-sampler “Tracks in Time”.

The 38-minute “Under the Moon” airs the characteristic sonic flavor from Spotted Peccary’s early releases, featuring ten spherical and dreamy tracks with a slight Indian/world-music edge. Most of all, the balanced and calming outcome is a perfect mix of percussion, acoustic/electric and electronic instruments where evocative melodic lines and smooth synth textures float along subtle and without much effort.
The sonic perfume found on the second half of the release proves even more haunting and seductive, with personal highlights “Gray Sky”, “Maker of Dreams” and “Before Dawn”.

Focused and repeated listens to “Under the Moon” will prove a most rewarding experience, revealing many glowing layers showing subtle ambient music can also be most powerful, fulfilling and enchanting.

P.S. In March 2015, Spotted Peccary Music re-released the album as a 20th Anniversary Remastered Edition with expanded booklet.
