about

Newly remixed, re-mastered, re-worked and re-released in late 2018 (originally released in 2015)!

Martin Ball continues to craft his own unique style of electronic/acoustic music with his latest release, "Dimensional Masters of the Translucent," a 13 track album of mellow, yet powerful and resonant, music. Always interested in exploring new musical territory, for this album, Martin experiments with vocoder "robot voice" vocals on "Tree of Fascination" and spoken word on "A Crystalline Wind" and "Who Could You Be?" There's soaring Native American flute on "Eagle Quest," "Dimensional Masters of the Translucent," and "The Somnambulist," the last two of which also feature didjeridu. Unlike many electronic artists, Martin makes all of his own loops, plays all of his own instruments, and does his own vocals (including throat and overtone singing), giving his music, no matter the style, a distinctive and identifiable sound. Combining elements of EDM, trance, dub, reggae, Native American and Asian sounds, he masterfully blends together diverse instrumentation with infectious grooves, providing a captivating sonic soundscape that takes the listener on a profound journey of inner exploration, dance, and liberating movement.

Track Name: Tree of Fascination
"We're all a part of everything," said the spider to the fly
"And life goes on without you, even when you die
Every choice is a fork in an ever-branching tree
So set your fears aside, and live like you are free
We're all a part of everything," said the spider to the fly
"We're all a part of everything, even when we die"

"There's a tree of fascination that's been growing in my mind
Birthing possibilities of every shape and every kind
An endless branching fractal that just grows and grows
Connecting me to everything, from my head down to my toes
And when that tree awakens to the fact that it exists
There is a pull that's impossible to resist
It's never been about right or wrong or striving to become
It's the joy of ecstasy in knowing we are one
The things that seem so different, really are the same
Just separate leaves on one great tree that goes without a name
It's a tree of fascination, so wondrous to behold
To know that it is really you can make your life so bold
So don't take things too personally, for your just a leaf on this great tree
It's your roots and your branches, too, that span eternity"

"We're all a part of everything
We're all a part of everything"

"So here's a truth that's so profound that it will set you free
I am you, and you are me, and together we are we
Just two different characters of predator and prey
'Just play your two parts,' is all the tree would say
Yes, there's a tree of fascination that's been growing in my mind
Birthing possibilities of every shape and every kind
An endless branching fractal that just grows and grows
Connecting me to everything, from my head down to my toes

"We're all a part of everything," said the spider to the fly
"And life goes on without you, even when you die
Every choice is a fork in an ever-branching tree
So set your fears aside, and live like you are free
We're all a part of everything," said the spider to the fly
"We're all a part of everything, even when we die"

"We're all a part of everything
We're all a part of everything
Every choice is a fork in an ever-branching tree
So set your fears aside, and live like you are free"

"So here's a truth that's so profound that it will set you free
I am you, and you are me, and together we are we
Just two different characters of predator and prey
'Just play your two parts,' is all the tree would say
Yes, there's a tree of fascination that's been growing in my mind
Birthing possibilities of every shape and every kind
An endless branching fractal that just grows and grows
Connecting me to everything, from my head down to my toes

"We're all a part of everything
We're all a part of everything
Every choice is a fork in an ever-branching tree
So set your fears aside, and live like you are free"
