MIDDLE PATH is an Electronic/New Age/World music crossover album featuring didgeridoo master Paradiso on a full range of didjeridoos, complemented with exotic instruments such as drums, bells, Tibetan bowls, vocals, keyboards, percussion and electronic instruments.
MIDDLE PATH is the seventh album for Paradiso (Paradiso Turturici), who lives and performs in the San Francisco Bay Area, of which he is a native. While it is impossible to fully replicate the deep vibratory effect of a live didjeridoo performance, Paradiso offers the next best thing with his variety of digital recordings.
Described as a melodic, hypnotic, and rhythmic musical ride, MIDDLE PATH is also therapeutic album that works with the mind, body and spirit. Paradiso's gift with the didjeridoo was passed through to him by various elders and mentors. His music has been described as "an anomalous mix of organic and inorganic instruments that when balanced create a therapeutic listening environment." (RJ Lannan, New Age Reporter).
Of the seven didjeridoos played on MIDDLE PATH, Paradiso explains, he uses his Didjeridoo (or "didj") in the key of C on the second track "Glistening Sky." He explains "This didj is made out of eucalyptus and it's from Australia; it's traditional in that sense. This is a male didj; it's my raw baby. It has no artwork painted on it, and is great for doing vocals and barks."
Alternately, on Track 6, "Reincarnation Incoming" he says, "I use didjeridoos in the keys of E and B; I also used this B didj for the song 'Ocean's Spirits.' The didj in the key of E is my favorite didj. She's a female and is made from agaves from Arizona, which is untraditional and unique. It came to me through a client, whose friend made it and said only 'Someone in California needs this didj.' So, when we met, she gave it to me, and I love it."
The intense vibration of the didjeridoo carries a sound current that has reportedly helped people to heal themselves on various levels. Some recipients of the healing session claim the entrancing music has the capacity to shift them towards their life purpose, their passion, and that it can balance the body and release negative blockages.
As Paradiso sees it, "Spirit plays through me." He adds, "I believe music can heal the mind, body and spirit and liberate us. My vision is to inspire all of us to rediscover our oneness with each other, with our environment, and with all of creation through music."
