Sozra, Pulse: Music from the Home Planet John Sosnowsky Recordings, SOZ 5101, 2001 www.sozra.com firstname.lastname@example.org THE MORE I EXPERIENCE THE HUMAN CULTURAL DIVERSITY OF THIS GRAND WORLD, THE MORE I BELIEVE IT IMPERATIVE THAT HUMANKIND NEEDS BE GUIDED BY A LONE THOUGHT AND A SPIRITUAL BELIEF. MY OPINION HAVING THIS COMMON CREED WOULD DECREASE CONFLICT, INCREASE LOVE, AND ENRICH LIFE. AS ONE GLOBAL CULTURE, OUR HEARTS BEAT THE SAME PULSE. WE BREATHE THE SAME AIR AND DREAM THE SAME DREAMS. CULTURE AND MANKIND DIVIDED BY TRADITION, YET COMMONLY JOINED BY HUMANITY ITSELF. Thus John Sosnowsky, a.k.a. Sozra, introduces Pulse: Music from the Home Planet a multi-dimensional CD of acoustic space music. Hannah Vo-Dinh (vocals) and Matt Kraft (bass) accompany John's guitars and keyboards. The wordless vocals are part of the instrumental soundscape. The bass carries the gentle rhythm gracefully. Despite his humility and willingness to give the credit away, John is the star of this album. His electronics are sparse and well placed; the acoustics are light and airy; the sound design and production are deft. John does not use a heavy hand anywhere on this CD but the pieces come across as full and satiating as they explore the realms of acoustic minimalism and gentle space music. This is a surprising winner from an obscure talent. John is based in, of all places, Hagerstown, MD and much of the post production work was done in Pittsburgh, PA (my hometown). - Jim Brenholts, EER-MUSIC.com Sozra: The Earth Space Continuum - A Virtual Sound Experience Sozra is John Sosnowsky. The Earth Space Continuum - A Virtual Sound Experience is a deep expansive experiment that explores the connections between acoustic Earth and electronic Space. It is set up as two long-form compositions. Each composition has "non-interrupted subdivisions." The Earth composition is almost entirely acoustic. John augments his soundworld with pastoral samples. The Space piece is mostly electronic with minor acoustic accompaniment. The soundscape is vast and dynamic. John's sound design expertise is on full display in this showcase. He has created the ultimate juxtaposition within his own imagination. His vast talent allows him to translate that to a musical statement and to share it with his listeners. ~ Jim Brenholts, EER-MUSIC.com
