What people say
“The Three Pillars” creates the space of the heart through the harmonic languages of the West and the Near East. Jan Duindam is a master of the heart space, allowing the ears of the soul to find East, West and recovery”.
……. your strikingly compelling guitar CD. Very wonderful, especially the way you sustain the mood and flow of 1, 2, 3, 4, my favourite tracks. ‘Quest’ in my imagination calls up both an ancient troubadour and a muezzin chanting a Moorish kind of prayer, a wonderful synthesis of Spanish-Moslem (Moors) 1 find 1 – 4 really haunting, opening and peaceful, yet dynamic! You must have had a lifetime there then. Track 6 is also wonderful and suggestive. You have a marvellous capacity for imagery, not just external. Sound more from the soul. You have a much needed gift for lyricism and heart in a world that is often heartless. 1 believe that we need the deeper kind of flowing, haunting incantations of beautiful music and sustained throughout a CD so as to allow deep journeys and continuous voyage and healing. So many CD’s ‘jump’ from mood to mood and do not sustain vision or flow. You have a real gift for melody, too, which I find few composers have today.
