The Trail of Genghis Khan (LP)
The album The Trail of Genghis Khan, made by Cye Wood in collaboration with Lisa Gerrard is now officially released on vinyl by Infinite Fog Productions. Sourced from material that Lisa and Cye produced for the documentary series of the same name, The Trail of Genghis Khan is an emotive interpretation of Tim Cope’s epic journey on horseback from Mongolia to Hungary (on which the documentary is based). Drawing on inspiration from this rugged and majestic landscape and the culture and inhabitants of this unique part of the world, they have allowed their intuition to be the guiding force in the creation of these works.
Whatever you know about Mongolia, hardly you could tell more than an Australian traveler Tim Cope, who left three years of his life in the marvelous Mongolian steppes, certainly taking with him far more impressions than many can take in their entire life. The film about this nomadic journey was released by the ABC Television Group and has received many awards, including The National Geographic.
Lisa Gerrard, widely known for her work in Dead Can Dance and the grandiose soundtracks, with the Australian violinist multi-instrumentalist Cye Wood, currently 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 the early years, and it's no surprise that they could find a perfect mutual understanding and create such a wonderful album worthy of being named one of the best in the discography of both authors. Charming melodies, excellent arrangements, perfectly balanced atmosphere and a bewitching plot of songs, all this in a compartment with the inimitable voice of Lisa Gerard is The Trail of Genghis Khan.
