Inspired by journeys of self discovery, Joshua Tree Dreamtime is a feeling I wanted to capture, a feeling of wonder and affinity I get when encountering evidence of past cultures whom once lived amongst this vast California desert landscape. This improv performance was recorded under the overhang of a giant rock named "Split Rock", one of Joshua Tree's Icons and a shelter for the ancient people of this sacred land.
Accompanying my Didgeridoo and HAIP tank drum are the sounds of a crystal singing bowl and a Native American drum, both also recorded at this beautiful location. Special thanks to my friends and Joshua Tree residents, Paula and Kurosh for their hospitality and sharing with us local knowledge of the Joshua Tree National Park and to my good friend Tim Flood for the wonderful audio mix.
