Stephan Micus’s fifth album for ECM is a lullaby. This time, Micus turns the kaleidoscope of his endless talent to reveal steel drums as the sound color of the moment. These provide a resonant, gamelan-like undercurrent throughout and become more biologically attuned as they sing beneath his mallets.

STEPHAN MICUS, steel drums, voice, dilruba, suling, kortholt, ney, sinding

Recorded January/February 1992 at MCM Studios.
