Create Music emerged while searching for ideas to
guide children in following the details of music. The
music architectures are often transparent, even

Create Music was designed from the tones and
harmonies of the instruments themselves. Here, the
individual sounds merge together, in transit to a
variety of luminous atmospheres and hypnotic moods.
This music was created primarily with percussion
instruments, older instruments from different cultures.
They are simple instruments, yet exotic, primitive
sound makers with complex personalities, timeless
sound treasures unchanging a hundred years.
Recordings were performed by Jon Keliehor and Signy
Jakobsdottir in the summer of 1999, at the Luminous
Music studio in Glasgow.
