Like other reviewers, I encountered the artist playing his hammered dulcimer on the street, while going to lunch. I don't remember whether I actually made it to lunch, I was so fascinated by the strange, other-worldly sounds emerging from his instrument. I thought I knew the dulcimer and what sort of music it produces. Not so. Michael Masley has converted it into an inner spaceship, with which to explore yourself and the mysteries that hover within you, waiting to come out. Come, take that journey within. There is so much to find, so much at which to marvel.

See my review for Cymballennium.

Also look up the artist on you tube.

This is active, complex hammered dulcimer music, kind of new age and almost space music, which is flat-out amazing for a person playing for the most part a solo acoustic instrument which he will do right in front of ya on the streets of San Francisco.

I saw him years ago, before his music was ever interluded on NPR. I saw him just playing on the street in SF. Frankly, I was as dumbfounded as I was entertained. I continue to be amazed at this one-of-a-kind artist, and I listen to his music a lot.

Here is a secret: his albums are being carried by magnatune, where you can pay a voluntary amt ranging from five bucks to whatever and get an album in high quality formt, not the junky mp3 quality.

There is supposed to be a movie about him soon, sometime in 07.

I can't believe no one else has put a review of this album - so I have edited my review from Cymballenium cuz it applies:

Somewhere around 1990, I was wandering around some San Francisco neighborhood wasting a couple hours. Wafting down the street came this unbelievable music. I mostly like classic rock, but I like some spacey New Agey stuff too, and had been listening to a little Vollenweider. Most of that New Agey stuff is lousy, though.

But there that day in SF was a street musician who was playing music that was unbelievably different, wonderful, and musical.

Now, I had seen a lot of live music - at that point I had seen a lot of classical music, seen Ravi Shankar, lots of rock shows (Clapton, Page, Fripp, SRV, and others recognized as music masters), seen Vollenweider, etc., but this guy was just making music like I had never heard just there on the sidewalk with the funky Koto-looking instrument and these claw-bows on his hands.

So I bought a cassette - Bells and Shadows - from him there on the street. Mike - thanks for taking a break to let me hand you the $10. I was hoping I would get a cassette that had just what I was hearing live, and I was not disappointed.

I played it while driving along the foggy Cal Hiway 1 - cool.

A few years later, Al Gore invented the Internet. I looked up M Masley and sent him a note, asking could I order a cd. I got Mystery Repeats Itself. Wonderful.

THen I got Cymballenium. It is more of the same, thankfully.

Don't you hate it when you love an album, so you go get another album from the person or band, and it just is not the same?

Anyway, listen to the samples. If it appeals at all, spend a few dollars and give it a try.
