Talk About Randy Graves & Didgital

 "The sound of the didj drew me in the first time I heard it. But the first time I heard {Randy} play I began to understand actually how wide the spectrum of didj playing actually is."
-Brandon Saggio, musician, Tucson, Arizona

"Didgital, by Randy Graves. This is one of the truely unique listens in the entire genre of didjeridu music. If you consider yourself a collector of recordings in this genre we call 'didgeridoo music' along with Woolunda, Bloodwood, Let the Dog Out, and others too numerous to mention....this one has that kind of significant difference which make it a must have."
-Ed Drury, musician and didgeridoo teacher, Portland, Oregon

"I LOVE IT!!!"

"… a blatant plug of a new cd by Randy Graves called Didgital. Randy is one of the most inventive and versatile non-Aboriginal didge players around. He has done a solo album, beginning with a solo didge performance and then tweaking it electrically. His unplugged didge playing is so extraordinary that it really doesn't need electrical "help," but his musicianship is exhibited in these beautiful tracks. Classified aberrant ecto--no vocals, but orally adept and aurally exquisite.

"I had an unusual experience on the first track of an audible (not optical) illusion. First I heard didge. Then I thought I was hearing tamboura, or electronic tamboura. But then, no, it was didge--I think... It was soooo nice.

"There are 2 cds I have that are essentially drones that are NOT just drones: Michael Vetter's Nocturne and Sheila Chandra's A Bone Crone Drone. The Chandra cd is a distant second favorite. But now I have a Randy Graves' Didgital that competes with Nocturne as favorite. (Well, maybe it's #1 now…)"
-Jerene Waite, a listener, San Diego, California

"I never expected such agressive and cool playing... Randy blew me away."
-Rick Dusek, didgeridoo player, Las Vegas, Nevada

"Randy Graves handily mastered the didgeridoo, an Australian aboriginal horn that consists only of a long tube taller than the musician. It's the kind of instrument that people often use just to show how enlightened they are about non-Western musical traditions, but in the context of this piece it seemed as much at home as the flute..."
-The San Diego Union-Tribune

"I just wanted to encourage you that your playing is far and away above what I've heard on many recordings. Not only in raw technique but also in variety and musical finesse. Your song writing is innovative, creative, and thoughtfuly approached showing respect and understanding of the traditional forms of didging along with a true artistry in 'modern western' song crafting.

"Your playing is often an inspiration for me in my own attempts with didgeridoo. Thanks for making great music."
-Brian Grover, musician, Chicago, Illinois

Awesome! The sounds are original and powerful. Usually I'm not a big fan of sound altering machines, but Randy did an excellent job with them. Very inspiring stuff!!
-Rio Olesky, didgeridoo player, Forestville, California

"Randy seems to have tapped into the 'Forgotten Chord.' It may well have been forgotten but Randy seems to have remembered it and tapped into on his latest offering. If you want to be reminded of what the Forgotten Chord sounds like this is the CD for you. Rich in harmonics and sounds that transcend. It is a joyful journey from the beginning to end and back again!"
-Bruce Gosey, didgeridoo player, Fort Myers, Florida

"... Randy Graves' performances on the didgeridoo call to mind the voices of souls in paradise, beyond the touch of both harm and earthly delight."
-The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Surrounded by enthralled spectators, Randy Graves sat on the ground and blew enthusiastically into an Australian didgeridoo."
