Music for Aliens
--Spacey Electronics with Exotic Rhythms -- 'Their shit's trippy, funked-up and jazzilicious, laced with extra helpings of curry powder or double doses of chill-pill, depending on which way their galactically informed muses sway them.' Tom Cheney, The LA Weekly, June 11-17, 2004 If you have made it this far then you are truly someone with ears for a new sound, and you're in the right place. Alien Chatter is the unexpected duo of Indian percussionist Satnam Ramgotra and keyboardist Rodney Lee. "Music for Aliens", their debut release, is a sophisticated blend of atmospheric electronic textures and exotic rhythms. It's an eclectic mix of Indian tabla drums, acoustic piano, synths, beatbox, spoken word in a primordial soup of electronics. The resulting experience is what happens when Massive Attack meets Tabla Beat Science and chill with the martians. In the tradition of John McLaughlin, Shakti, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Zakir Hussain, and Talvin Singh, Alien Chatter is forging new ground with it's modern take on East meets West. 'When we began to work on this project, we totally let the music and our collective influences take over. We had no idea what the end result would be. So when we began playing the music for our friends we were blown away by the overwhelming positive response! I hope you enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed making it' Rodney Lee.
