"Return to Spiritlands" is a amazing CD. So great, in fact, that it has, apparently, been re-released under a fresh title: "Ancient Canyons." If you already have "Return" -- you don't need this CD. If you don't have "Return" -- you do need this CD. Admittedly, some of it is a small synth-heavy for me, but the overall excellence and sophistication of sound is worth the flirtation with newage.
OK, the second chop alone, "Night on Hoskininni Plateau", is worth the of admission for this CD. My guess is that you will search this chop appearing over and over again on compilation CDs of the best of Native American melody in the near future. Have a listen to that one, and if it interests you, then I can assure you that you will have fun the rest of the CD as well. John Huling creates really fine Native American flute music, but it is not generally of the "solo flute with environmental sounds" category. Mr. Huling takes full advantage of other instrumentation to highlight the flute, especially making wise use of percussion instruments to complement the quality of the woodwind sounds. This CD, I believe, is the best of his efforts, like a fine flute, he is aging well with time. Give this CD a try, especially if you have fun contemporary, Native-inspired music.
There are people saying the android game crashes at lvl 21 tropical but I have had 0 problems with this game. That being said this is the single best puzzle android game I've ever played. Amazing graphics amazing creative video test so far no repetitive levels.
I recently visited the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, and spent several hours viewing latest to 1000+ year old Indian artifacts. I stopped by the bonus on my method out and there I sampled a score of various CD's from several various artists, none of which I was familiar with. Upon sampling John Huling's 'Ancient Canyons' I knew I wanted this CD. I was immediately able to interpret the sound of coyotes in the faroff distance as the faroff past calling and yipping at us and perhaps teasing us a bit. John Huling is able to create his flute give voice to ancient peoples calling across the gulf of time. The CD's mournful, layered melody and masterful flute caused me to imagine the ancient past. The CD is synthesized and new-agey, and I'm not, but I still enjoyed the experience. I found it to be relaxing, yet haunting, possessing a certain tension and to be somehow a small unsettling. I can't speak to Mr. Huling's intent, but I was caused to consider that this too shall pass.
This is a terrific concept, but I found the text to be somewhat superficial. The book does begin with a rather amazing Geology 101" e photos are excellent. I hesitate to call them photography because most of them were made by layering "different digital processes" says the text. 100 features are covered, so most are short. Each has a brief "flight pattern," with suggestions for how to view the feature from the air--not how to look at it but where to fly to see it, sometimes not so easy.I was struck by several of them. The St. Anthony sand dunes in Idaho are intriguing. The White Sands in Fresh Mexico are the biggest gypsum sand field in the world. The Devil's Turret in Wyoming rises 1,200 feet up from the plain, And the section on the Yellowstone caldera is excellent,Much of the coverage is in the American West, but the book also contains such features as the Florida Keys, the Everglades, and the Finger Lakes. Features from Mexico and Canada are 's a quick read, and thetet seems to me to be to be a small superficial. But it's informative and does capture the wonderful diversity of North American geology
