KOSMOPTERIX

Published 2009, Didgiland records

In technical terms,  it is didgeridoo music, a recorded result of didgeridoo songs explorations in years 2007, 2008 and 2009.  New musical ideas asked for a wider range of expression possibilities, and therefore through deep exploration of art and skill of didgeridoo playing, a significant technique shift was made and new ways discovered.
