|music||:||Lee Bartel/Daniel May - Easing into Alpha|
I got Tao (Ron Allen et al.). It has less of a Chinese sound to it due to the guitar, the fretless bass, the hi hat, the keyboard and Shannon Kingsley's voice. She only ever does background vocals and only "ah". Before I looked at the credits, I could hear from the phonation that she had a very Caucasian voice.
I definitely prefer Feng Shui, but Tao is very nice as well.
The Sonicaid CDs looked very interesting on the shelf. What can I say? I'm a sucker for surface plots of various objects — teapots in particular, but any complex object will do. =) Anyway, I pressed the buttons to hear the samples. I liked Relaxation the best. Daniel May is a very talented composer. I'm pretty sure this is the same person who wrote the music for the Feng Shui CD.
I wonder if this is the same Daniel May that did the music for Everest with Liam Neeson...
