A solid debut from this Israeli progressive trance duo, 1998's Angel Tears mostly stays away from the clichés of the ethnic electronic or tribal techno subgenres. Though Middle Eastern and Indian voices and instruments (mostly sampled, but some live) drift through this spaciously-produced album, the emphasis remains on Momi Ochiron and Sebastian James Taylor's songs, which sound strongly rooted in English progressive rock of the '70s. The acoustic guitar at the heart of "Midbar Sinai" owes a lot to Mike Oldfield, and other tracks, particularly "The Way of the Mystic," recall Fragile-era Yes given a beatbox update. As always with ambient techno, the instrumental and vocal textures are paramount, but, unusually for this genre, the melodies of these lengthy tunes are largely memorable, and moods and arrangements vary widely from song to song.
world music produced by Momi Ochion and Sebastian James Taylor (Shakta). This will transport you to an enhanced journey of sounds and voices from every corner of the globe .. chill!

I came across this CD at a music festival booth. I asked the vendor what would be good for massage, as I am a CMT. He popped The Dreaming into a CD and I listened for about 5 minutes before I was hooked.
Just about every one of the songs on the CD is amazing. An incredible mix of Middle Eastern rhythms, ethereal voices, and otherwordly ambience. People ask me all the time what I am playing when I use this CD for my massage sessions. I recently got a DJ friend into this music, and he's in the process of acquiring all 4 CDs by this duo.
My absolute favourite song is Dmaot Malach. When I listen to it with my boyfriend, it feels like we're a million miles away from the world.
We're major fans of Zero 7 and Sound Tribe Sector 9, and this CD is also with us on any trip or evening together.

I had heard several tracks from this CD and was excited about receiving it, however, I was blown away by the fact that I LOVED EVERY TRACK on it. Not only from the point of view of a fan of fabulous music, but from the fact that I can use the music in the psychotherapeutic exercises I facilitate (Breathwork and tantra therapy). Every track is hugely evocative and transporting and the sequence of the tracks is perfect. Couldn't be happier about a music purchase.
Fabulous album - one of my favorites, December 1, 2004

I found this CD in a yoga shop and bought it without knowing anything about it. it was one of the best purchases i made! The soft and melodic tracks, with sophisticated rhythms and beats underneath are perfect to play around the house, and especially when working. I'm a graphic designer, and we play this CD all the time in the studio. It really helps the creative flow...! And what's interesting is that i don't seem to be getting tired of it, i just keep discovering new layers and depth.
It's a wonderful CD, i highly recommend it.
