Beyond East-Martin Case
Beyond East-Martin Case
Beyond East “chronicles a man’s musical interactions with the pole of the earth, how the world has changed him, and the importance of channeling multiple dialects into a cohesive, meaningful vision. Combining threads of ancient knowledge, gleaned from the Earth, and the people close to it; the result is a flavorful tapestry, almost dangerously woven with modern production standards.” -Vin Jensen, Berkshire Arts, 2009.
