salt enhances. salt brings forth. xsaltm's music brings portraits of power, beauty and passion in the human soul and the heart of the Creator.
Influences: Enigma, for their expansiveness of expression. The blues for it's soul and passion. The great 19th century romantic orchestral music for it's breadth and journeys through human emotion. Reprazent for their fun combinations of jazz and electronica and vocals.
Voyages is a combination of styles, written as inspiration came in different ways, over the course of a year. Some of the ambient scapes were inspired by a movement-oriented theater piece. Some of rock/blues flavored lyrics were added by blues/alternative singer Rebecca Cole of Austin. The last track, IS58, has vocals processed thru a complex set of vocoder carrier and modulator inputs.
