Over one million readers have come to know and love the work of Julia Cameron. Her national best-seller, The Artist's Way, tapped into the spirit of our age, taking creativity back from "artists" and returning it to people from every walk of life. Now this acclaimed writer reveals another dimension of her own creative life, which again taps into a growing cultural current: the power of the spoken word to sanctify our most personal visions and experiences.
Recorded over a seven-day period in a studio cloistered in the high Rockies, This Earth fuses Cameron's poetry with a delicate "planetary mass" by virtuoso flautist and composer Tim Wheater. Together these two unique artists vivify the elemental forces that shape our common wonder at the greater mysteries of existence. Here is a rich celebration of language and melody that evokes the past and future of our bodies and our earth, transporting listeners into the territory of totems, dreams, and memory. This Earth is a landmark in poetry's post-modern renaissance, mirroring its unlimited possibilities for transformation of self and civilization. Contains 30 poems by Julia Cameron with original score and flute by Tim Wheater.From AudioFile:
Recorded over four days and nights in the mountain serenity of Boulder, Colorado, This Earth is meant to be a natural union of music (by Wheater) and poetry (by Cameron). In this, it succeeds. Wheater's ethereal flute fits well with the tones of the readers. The poetry itself leaves much to be desired, hinging its limited imagery and sometimes antiquated language on overused themes, such as bread, wine and water, in order to move toward a theme of global unity. The themes in This Earth are undoubtedly important, but Cameron more often than not fails to capture their uniqueness until the final poem, "Why We Write." Overall, the recording's production quality is excellent, and its intention is certainly admirable. R.A.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
