Touching Silk is a joyful cleanser, a break from our sometimes harsh world into one that is rich in fantasy and beauty. Balanced with dynamic rhythms and exquisitely poetic passages, this is music on a grand scale, filled with exotic sounds spanning the horizon from east to west.

Frank Steiner, Jr. is a German composer, but he's shown a penchant for Asian tonalities in recent years. Steiner is a gifted sound designer and player, who tends to drown his uncomplicated melodies and often striking instrumentation in honey-laden arrangements and Ray Conniff-esque voices. Playing most of the instruments himself, and most of them being keyboards or samples, Steiner mixes electronics, acoustic orchestral sounds, and traditional Chinese instruments. An electronic wind instrument effectively mimics a Chinese flute on "Indira Chant," and Chinese zithers ripple throughout his arrangements. But Steiner's simple pentatonic melodies have a trite, faux-ethnic ring. Touching Silk is an updating of Les Baxter-styled exoticism, but the results are less charming for their pretensions. --John Diliberto

In fact, the MF/CM/BD/MG links are still active, but they are hidden within ADF links, and the ADF links have been sold to Linkvertise. Normally, when you click on an ADF link, it redirects to Linkvertise, which contains numerous annoying advertisements. I don't want you to feel uncomfortable with that, so I've set up ADF to automatically redirect to my notification page.
