"The Trail Of Genghis Khan"
Label: Infinite Fog Productions (2017)
The album The Trail of Genghis Khan by Lisa Gerrard in collaboration with Cye Wood is sourced from material they created for the Australian documentary series The Trail of Genghis Khan. The album is an emotive interpretation of Tim Copes epic journey on horseback from Mongolia to Hungary. Drawing on inspiration from this rugged & majestic landscape and the culture & inhabitants of this unique part of the world, they have allowed their intuition to be the guiding force in the creation of these works.
Lisa Gerrard, widely known for her magical voice in Dead Can Dance and some grandiose soundtracks, together with the Australian violinist / multi-instrumentalist Cye Wood (based in Berlin), portrayed the emotions and impressions of the epic journey in musical form.
Cye and Lisa are both extraordinary musicians who have devoted their entire lives to music since their days of youth, its no surprise that they would find the perfect mutual understanding and create such a wonderful album, worthy of being named as one of the best in the discography of both authors.
Cye previously worked with Lisa as a violinist on her 2009 solo album The Black Opal.
Charming melodies, excellent arrangements, perfectly balanced atmosphere and a bewitching plot of songs, all this plus the inimitable vocals of Lisa Gerard. This and nothing less is what The Trail of Genghis Khan stands for!
