    Personnel: Lisa Gerrard, Pieter Bourke.
    Dead Can Dance singer Lisa Gerrard teams up with percussionist Pieter Bourke on this experiment in musical "fusion cooking." In fact, the selections on DUALITY exemplify the belief that, in the end, all musical styles are related.
    Gerrard's voice is heard on DUALITY in a number of contexts. From the liturgical leanings of "The Comforter," which features multi-tracked Gerrard vocals, to the stark Middle Eastern-inflected "Shadow Magnet," this album abounds with references to exotic lands and ancient musical styles. Droning undercurrents, striking uses of Eastern modalities, gorgeous layers of baroque harmonies, and intense world-beat percussion all contribute to DUALITY's charm and magnetism. "Nadir (Synchronicity)" offers a cross section of humanity given the fluttering Eastern melody, the West African hand-drumming, and the sleek, contemporary production. Like the music of Dead Can Dance, this album explores the four corners of the earth with the hope of building a better bridge between cultures and epochs.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (5/15/98, p.102) - "...Aided by longtime percussionist Pieter Bourke, the Dead Can Dance mainstay swoops kingfisher low one minute and soars kestrel high the next, from an aerie of gothic keyboards and tribal drums. It's a sophisticated, visceral sound not found in any Top 40 cage, or in the field guide." - Rating: A-
