I'm an armchair traveller ... never travelled the world, except in my imagination ... never wished to fly and never had the time or the money to spare to go on a world cruise ... though I quite like the idea I have to say.
This album, like 'Journey To The Stars' before it, is another imaginary journey but, this time, firmly based on this our own planet Earth and is a collection of world music inspired tracks which are a whistle-stop, cinematic tour of some of the exotic parts of the world I have only read about or seen on TV documentaries.
The journey starts in a dug-out canoe on a fast flowing river in central Africa and the rich beauty of African skies, travelling on through the magic of the Middle East to the gateway to India, beyond through Asia onto a scuba diving trip off the Barrier Reef; continuing to Ayers Rock and the timeless Aboriginal forest into the plains of North America, the Grand Canyon and a celebration of the Native American nations and finally into the great wide open ... thinking is the best way to travel!
Alesis Fusion and Korg Karma synths, EWQL vst instruments, Strat guitar and Ovation electro acoustic guitar like 'Journey To The Stars' are used on this album but also FX and vocal loops and just a smidge of vocal hopefully lending a cinematic imagery to this one ...
So, settle in your favourite armchair, with maybe a long drink to hand, close your eyes and take an imaginary journey round this 'Floating World' and celebrate the diversity of world music on the way ... all comments and feedback greatly appreciated as always :))
