According to the website or the booklet of the record, most people would mistake the pianist Margaret Penn for Oreobambo or one of the members. However, Oreobambo is neither Margaret Penn nor a group name but a personal pseudonym of Michele Tucci, an Italian musician, not the American actor. Therefore, to be more precise, “Spinning Around Our Star” is a recording of Margaret Penn’s performance of Michele Tucci’s works.TRACKLIST:
In “Spinning Around Our Star,” we perceive “Time” from the perspective of stars.
While we are listening to the music of harpsichord and piano, those beautiful notes illustrate a vivid theme and image of the infinite universe. The ‘Fresh Water Springing from the Uku Pacha’ depicts an image of water that keeps springing up from the underworld. This connotes the birth of life. The word “Uku Pacha” (underworld) is cited from the Incas for its special indication of an Incan worldview. When it comes to ‘The Clock of the Spheres is for You,’ we could see a starry night sky. Stars are spheres. They all have limits and meet their own doom someday, but for all beings who live on the sphere, their movement represents the shift of time. Thus, whether it is the sphere under our feet or the spheres above our head are all our “Clocks.”
When we move to ‘Spinning Around Our Star,’ the vision goes further. The opening sound of the harpsichord turns into the music of merry-go-round. And when the sound shifts from harpsichord into piano, it not only presents the evolution of an instrument but also implies the progress of Time. The scene then turns into a touching view of the infinite universe that reveals the triviality of a human being. For all the beings that are living on the Sphere of Our Star, those stars seem to be moving around us. However, this is a subjective misconception. In fact, we, as the being on the Sphere, are merely another little being rotating around another star.
