Think what it must have been like to trail through the undiscovered, unmolested jungles and forests of earth before humans completely "conquered" the world. The silence, the loneliness, the mystery and fear, the beauty. This is how I felt while listening to "One Thousand Years" by Tuu.
"Exile" is a hypnotic, melodic beckoning, as if two or more primitive tribes are communicating over distances.
The title track, a masterpiece, captures the essesnce of the album. It made me forget I was living at the dawn of the 21'st century and put me in a prehistoric, timeless world I couldn't shake for hours after I heard it. "High Places" gave me the feeling of just that, sitting atop a tall tree or cliff looking at the natural events below me, contemplating. "Pan American" and "Body of Light" continue the same feeling of watching, and being watched, by primitive peoples.
The only reason I can't in fairness give this five stars is that this style of music has been done numerous times. I 've heard this kind of music numerous times by others. Rarely has it been done THIS well, however.
Another gorgeous late-night listening experience from the Waveform label. A spirtual cleansing. Highly recommended!

Happily reissued by Waveform, this was an excellent early to mid 90's ambient work. Its slow pace, and atmospheric mix of synths and folk instrumentation, evoke a more human past in which dreaming and spiritual speculation were stronger than any mass media or cultural technology ... heck, way back when, myths and folklore WERE the mass media. The technology ... was spoken history, and musical expression. Not quite slow and serene enough for yoga or other meditation, but a suitable soundtrack to your own afternoon of quiet melancholy for a hidden past. On the [Scary (1) -> Angelic (10)] scale of ambient works, I'd position this at 6. Followed by ALL OUR ANCESTORS, also on Waveform, also highly recommended as a companion CD.

I was a little disapointed when I discovered the Nick Parkin was not on the CD, but, its very good although he is not present. In fact, Iam most certainly impressed. A very relaxing and trance producing CD, that maintains interest all the way through. One of the better purchases for me this year. I was playing it so much I was afraid I was going to burn myself out, so I put it away for a couple of weeks..highly recomended

Naturally, music resonates differently on an emotional level for each listener, but I found myself coming back to this highly evocative recording over and over again. Particular voices and instrumentations invite specific associations at times, but the pervading mood suggests exotic atmospheres, imaginary journeys and unfamiliar horizons at sunset. If you liked Mesh, you might enjoy the greater subtlety and languid pacing of One Thousand Years.

I first played this cd in the middle of the night when I couldn't fall asleep. I instantly liked it and played it a few more time in the morning when I woke up This music is serene and the ones who are playing it do it well. This is no new age fluff. If you like flutes, percussions and some delicate synth That is trance like this cd is for you. I will keep this close by so that I can keep it near me for those moments when I need to contemplate. Highly recommended.
