Product Description

2008 album from the Mexico City native, a musician and folklorist with an interest in the instruments and musical traditions of Incan and Mayan civilizations. Tales Of Astral Travelers, links Perez's interest in South American antiquity with contemporary sounds and recording technology. The result is a lilting m‚lange of flutes and percussion instruments, synthesizer, natural sounds, accordion, and strings. Tracks like "Insectos" and "Amphibians," which feature recordings of the title creatures, draw us directly into the heart of the rain forest, while beautifully evocative cuts like "Aurora's Dream" send a kind of siren song on woodwinds. Domo.

There were music and instruments in the Americas long before Columbus hit these shores. That's what Mexican composer Luis Perez plays: The vessel flutes, sticks, stones, and bone rasps were used by Mayan and Incan cultures to make a music that has passed into the vapors of Mexican jungles. But Perez taps into their spirit on his American debut, Tales of Astral Travelers. As Luis Perez Ixoneztli, he's been on the Los Angeles music scene for many years, recording with Kitaro, Yes singer Jon Anderson, film composer James Horner, and the world fusion group, Huayucaltia. You can hear these influences in his music, which imbeds his Pre-Columbian instruments in lush arrangements with synthesizers, strings, guitars, and accordions. Perez evokes folkloric themes on "Sleeping Woman" and "Temple of Inscriptions," and crafts imagistic landscapes on "Sacred Mountain" and "Lunar Dance." Perez believes that astral travelers have visited us on Earth, but his music creates its own alien designs, born out of antiquity. --John Diliberto

Format: Audio CD
Even though the description did not mention it, Mr. Perez was a member of Cirque du Soleil's "Mystere" entourage. His official musical intrument credit was sound illustrator. He provided the famous "Mystere" bird calls and nature sounds and haunting voices and subliminal percussions. "Tales Of Astral Travelers" exposes his talents even further with his expertise in meshing ancient and modern instruments with a Latin feel. A must have.

I bought this CD after hearing one song on my music cable channel. Unfortunately that was the only good track on this cd.
