Viviana GUZMÁN .... USA
Lagrimas de Mariposa 7'04
(Planet Flute) [Well-Tempered]
Despite the boring album title and stupid CD cover with Guzmán in a topless pose holding her flute, this is quite a presentable and atmospheric all-acoustic melange, with didgeridoo and percussion. There is definitely a pattern of meaningless art direction emerging with this label.

Philip GLASS, Conducted by Michael REISMAN .... USA
Distraught 2'56
(Kundun) [Point]

This is the soundtrack album to the Martin Scorsese film about the 14th Dalai Lama.

GYÜTÖ MONKS - Members of the TIBETAN INSTITUTE of PERFORMING ARTS .... Dharamsala (Tibetans in exile)
Mahakala 5'50
(Dhama Suna) [Detour]
This week there are Gyütö monks completing a beautiful sand mandala in the National Gallery of Victoria. Watching the process highlights its emphermeral nature. It is for me much like a musical performance - a unique rendition reliant on the human experience and the nature of memory.
