More than once I’ve felt US-composer Deborah Martin was the female sonic equivalent of Austrian multi-instrumentalist Gandalf in a certain way.
“The Eye of the Wizard”, an epic musical odyssey through a realm of wizardry and sacred alchemy, weaves an enchanting tapestry of sounds of acoustic and electronic origin where the sphere of faeries is present.
The 8-track instrumental outcome is vibrant and cinematic, even reflecting some world music flavors like e.g. Loreena McKennitt occasionally, but Deborah makes them all root firmly in a contemporary sound design with a slice to the progressive. In addition, a dynamic pulse and powerful sound are present in the dreamy and lyrical-oriented compositions to prevent the narrative music to become cheesy or lame.
