Tibet, part II - Una de las piezas más mágicas y fantásticas de Mark Isham

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mark Ware Isham (born September 7, 1951) is an American trumpetersynthesist, and film composer. He works in a variety of genres, including jazzelectronic, and film.[1][2] As of 2011, he is responsible for composing the score for the TV series Once Upon a TimeHis discography is extensive and varied, including with his participation with units like Group 87 , and David Torn's Cloud About Mercury project, and sessions with people like Terry BozzioBill Bruford and Doug Lunn.


Tibet is an electro-tribal world music symphony composed to honor that country. Mark Isham handles the task tastefully and tactfully. He uses Japanese haiku as a basis for rhythm and repetition. The only ethnic instrument is the bamboo flute. Isham's sound design incorporates traditional western instruments in honor of Tibet and its culture. This is not Tibetan music, but it does evoke imagery of the Himalayas and "the place where the earth and the heavens meet." The atmospheres are subtle and mysterious. Isham's soundscapes waver from new age to ambient to minimalism to worldbeat. The fluctuations are random. This disc will appeal to fans of Jon JenkinsGreg KlamtJohn Flomer, andPatrick O'Hearn.
