Informed by the language of archetypes and potent literary symbols, the album extends the composer's evolving style of musical storytelling. Its forms and phrases are not linear, but spiral and labyrinthine maps to unconscious regions. Rich sonorities combine atmospherics, drones, pads and solo synths, tabla and frame drum, bells and throat singing, pulsing synthesizer sequences, breathy textures, lapping water, and the expressive, protagonistic voice of the Haken Continuum Fingerboard, a core element of Chronotope Project's signature sound.
Cinematic in scope and depth, the majestic Dawn Treader is Chronotope Project’s first full length release on the Spotted Peccary label. Jeffrey Ericson Allen is the sole creative force behind the music, and he skillfully balances the compositions between mystical, ambient dreamscapes and organic, emotional melodic statements. The soundscapes – drawn from a variety of sources spanning ambient electronic, Western classical, and traditional world music – are textural, compelling, evocative, and meaningful. This release has been aired on Hearts of Space, Echoes, Galactic Travels, Star's End and Night Tides.
