Peter "Peas" McEvilley reinterprets, or "filters", the music of legendary Japanese world music pioneer Kitaro on Filters, a collection of tracks produced by McEvilley that contain abundant samples of original Kitaro compositions. Throughout each track, McEvilley seamlessly crafts the master musician's trademark lush melodies and dramatic crescendos into a beautiful, downtempo sonic adventure.
The timing of this album's release couldn't be more perfect, as Peas will be a headlining act at the Summer Earthdance tour. This 20 date North American tour launches August 19 in Los Angeles, with stops in Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Philadephia, New York, Washington, New Orleans and San Francisco, among others, leading up to the 8th annual Earthdance global gathering on September 18. Also on the bill are superstar DJ/Producer BT, Particle, and Dan the Automator.
