An enhanced special edition of Alan Dargin's 1993 release Bloodwood.
Splendid cross-pollinated didjeridu recordings that gives master didg player Alan Dargin a chance to demonstrate the sort of mind-boggling sounds he can produce from his instruments -- "Hitchhiker’s Nightmare," recorded on the streets of Sydney, Australia, has Dargin painting a wild highway soundscape that leaves his audience roaring with appreciative laughter. "Fantastic Plastic," on the other hand, is a demonstration that a master didji player can make any handy tube into an instrument -- Dargin used a handy two-meter PVC pipe for this cut. Given his ability to produce overtones (a skill few didjeridu players have), the final result is quite startling. Michael Atherton, for his part, adds some excellent elements to Bloodwood: The Art of the Didjeridu.
