Sound of the earth red dust and sweat

Australia: Sound of the Earth is an 1991 album from Steve Roach, documenting Roach's second trip to Australia. David Hudson's didgeridoo and cellist Sarah Hopkins were also featured. "It is somewhat ironic that one of the best Western-Aboriginal fusions has been the work of the highly regarded American ambient musician, Steve Roach." - (Sydney Morning Herald) "The album breathes heat, the scorching breath of that red and rainless land. It's built on a bedrock of unearthly ambience, the kind of night bush sounds that would make even the most fearless and skeptical travelers move closer to the fire". - (Sonics, Australia)
