MICHAEL STEARNS
Storm, The
CD, Spotted Peccary Music, 2001
The content of this album by ambient master Michael Stearns is not as new as one might think. In fact, half of the twelve tracks on the album are really new, and contain music Michael composed for various films and documentaries.

Nevertheless, it’s always a great joy to hear the impressive sonic paintings he has come up with. The outcome is a nice fusion of immersive environmental sounds and captivating soundscapes, in which the typical Serge sound also shows up.

The cd also contains the four tracks which were formerly released on the Amplexus 3"cd-single "The Light in the Trees", but now these tracks have been scattered over this album.
Another previously released track is the atmospheric "Hantu", taken from Lektronik’s "Soundscape Gallery II".

Especially for collector’s of Michael’s music, the well produced "The Storm" is a must-have.
