Following on from their critically acclaimed albums of Mariners Way & Northern Lights, Susie Hodder-Williams (flute/alto flute/piccolo) & Chris Caldwell (sop/alto sax & bass clarinet) join forces with the percussionist, experimental jazz drummer and contemporary music label owner of FMR Records, Trevor Taylor, for the musical exploration of The Sound Within FMR CD390-0115. If Mariners Way evoked the mythical journey of the ancient mariner across the moors of South West England, The Sound Within journeys to a place which is within all of us, totally familiar yet often overlooked, a place where insights are created. This is where the formless becomes form, through the process of being in the moment. The three musicians weave an improvisational tapestry responding to what's happening around them. Their individual thoughts creating their feelings and responses both through the texture, length and quality of the note they produce and the often overlooked power of stillness. The musicians here came along with an openness of not being tied to any formalised agendas or attachment to outcomes. Through this they touch the beauty of being truly free, a place where universal mind, personal thought and consciousness exist together in perfect harmony.
