Quotes

Selected reactions to Lee Negin's "Hungry Ghosts" album:

"Mixture of ambient and electro pop. Very much a mind-bending trip of sounds. Outstanding album -- great on loud systems."

--Paul Readman, Music World Radio 1

"The whole album is a floating trip of sounds and vocals that takes you to another place."
--Demand Records, U.K.

"Lee Negin is hitting what seems to be yet another apex in his music career."
--Chris Constantino, SonicTribe Network

"Sometimes people who have had near-death experiences say that they are taken to a place where their entire life flashes before their eyes, and in 'The Dance,' that's what I felt."

--Sheena Metal, LATalkRadio

"A stimulating listen. So take some time to ponder intellectual relativity and the space aliens living in your inner ear."

--John Shelton Ivany Top 21

"Hearing this artist's expertly produced work is to experience a vision aimed beyond the realm of pop. ...Negin never offers the same sound twice, employing singers as ensemble instruments and working with sounds in a way that reminds us at times of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Wendy Carlos."

- Music Connection Magazine, April 2011

"Lee Negin is an eccentric genius. Not content with just (!) being a university professor and a globe-trotting life – Negin has lived in Japan, India, Poland and, currently, South Korea, since leaving America 21 years ago – he has spent over three decades producing experimental music to the point of (near) perfection. His new album ‘Hungry Ghosts’ – released February 7th – is a mad masterpiece....it’s addictive and blissful.

Author: Clive Rozario, AAA Music

And, in refusing to review it, the venerable New Music Express said it was "A bit too far off the wall for us."

Winter is settled and spreads its coldness
Not a bit of greenery is now safe
The great time of silence stretches its armor
To preserve the world in a long night.

The road yesterday still, covered with brown earth
Welcomed yellow leaves and wet foams,
Puddles of scattered water, illuminated by the moon
Reflect the ballets of the mischievous sylphids ...

This morning every step sinks into the soft snow
Perceiving under the layer the hardness of the soil.
Odours are frozen in an icy atmosphere
And the songs of the birds come as muffled

Walking through the trees strewn with diamonds
Long and dark skeletons in the same clothes
Slightly rolled, they form an arch
Honouring my passage in a brilliant greeting…

© L'âme d'hiver *** Chantal Duros aka Eny 2005

Hiver est installé et répand sa froidure
Pas un brin de verdure qui ne soit à l’abri
Le grand temps de silence étire son armure
Pour préserver le monde dans une longue nuit.

Le chemin hier encore, couvert de terre brune
Accueillait les feuilles jaunes et les mousses humides,
Des flaques d’eau éparses, éclairées par la lune
Refletaient les ballets des mutines sylphides…

Ce matin chaque pas s’enfonce dans la neige molle
Percevant sous la couche la dureté du sol.
Les odeurs sont figées dans une ambiance glacée
Et les chants des oiseaux parviennent comme feutrés.

J’avance entre les arbres parsemés de diamants
Squelettes longs et sombres dans une même vêture
Légèrement ployés, ils forment une voussure
Honorant mon passage en un salut brillant…
