Additional Booking Notes
Enchanted Lands Music is a very flexible and modular musical production. Since the music is designed for Atmosphere, The performance space or stage can be as small as a 4X4 foot space. I have produced numerous house concert type events and work with the space allowed for us. Ideally the space works best at a 6x6 foot area. Also the lighting is all 110 or lower and can be outfitted to the space and accommodate features that are unique to the venue. I use a Roland Cube Street EX 50 watt PA system equipped with 4 channels that can accommodate most performances. I can run a variety of events inside/outside ( and on battery power/off Grid) and can outfit most spaces with a full sound. I am not equipped as a large venue operation and will need PA assistance for
The Enchanted Lands Music set list is comprised of all original music. The sets can be modulated more to these genres: Ambient, New Age, World and Electronic in their themes.
Influences & Inspiration
Enchanted Lands Music has very organic influences. I would say for my Native Flute sound, I discovered Carlos Nakai years ago and he sets the bar for me as far as the level of musician ship and heart associated with his music. I have been a Vangelis fan forever, his soundtracks for "Chariots of Fire", "Blade Runner" and "The Bounty" demonstrate amazing compositions that incorporate world music styles with his signature keyboard technique. I also discovered Steve Roach the "Dreamtime Return" has an incredible ambient soundscapes and depth for it's time. I really listen to so many styles and varieties of music but feel that film soundtracks connect to me and influence the Enchanted Lands Soundscape more than anything else.
I have my own equipment to outfit most events. Depending on the space and event size I can easily upgrade to a larger PA sound system.
