"The Web continues to blend organic, elemental timbres of flutes and other acoustic traditional instruments with the latest tools of musical technology. From their earliest album together, (1978) "Dragon Wings and Wizard Tales" to "Manatee Dreams of Neptune", they have always remained true to their vision of a beautiful simplicity, yet paradoxically their music exudes an alluring warmth and elegance through technology." Robert Carlberg, music reviewer for Electronic Musician Magazine (from the liner notes)
This is a classic electronic/new age album and classic Emerald Web. Originally recorded in 1990, and recently re-released. The music stands the test of time with its mixture of organic textures, electronic orchestrations and magical sonic landscapes.
Emerald Web was a band that recorded, performed in Planetariums, composed soundtracks for Carl Sagan, and concert toured around the US, from 1978-1990. The band consisted of Kat Epple and Bob Stohl who composed on keyboards, digital orchestrations, flutes, and Lyricon.
Eight time Emmy Award-winning composer, keyboardist, and flautist, Kat Epple, has released several CDs of original music, both as a solo artist, and as a member of the groups, Emerald Web and White Crow.
She has performed at the Guggenheim Museums and the US National Gallery, and composes and produces music for modern dance and television, including "National Geographic", and "Nova". She has traveled throughout the world, collecting flutes from other cultures which she features in her original compositions and CD releases.
Flautist, keyboardist and Lyricon player, Bob Stohl performed, recorded and composed music with Emerald Web for many years. He passed away in 1989 at the age of 34. He was renowned for his innovative synthesizer orchestrations and for his Lyricon playing. The Lyricon is an unusual hybrid synthesizer/woodwind instrument that creates a variety of sounds on this album such as electric guitar, oboe and french horn.
