The thought of Jim Marcus playing real instruments scared the living daylights out of me until I found out about his classical music training in his youth. Nevertheless new age industrial music compared to the likes of perhaps Enya and Kitaro was not something I expected from Mr. Marcus at all. New age practically sums up the entire album, wind instruments percolate, extravagant electronic and live percussion filter through the fresh spring breeze, and female vocals dance through meadows. Soft, happy, percussive and very lulling. Definitely nothing you'd find yourself dancing to any time soon. An oddly unique musical fanfare from the last people on earth you'd expect this kind of music to come from.

Oxygiene 23 are:
Jane Jensen - programming, vocals
Van Christie - guitar, programming, engineering
Jim Marcus - flute, saxophone, drums, percussion, piano
