Haida is a very special album from four-time Grammy nominated producer and musician, David Miles Huber. The first disc, “Raven,” portrays the beauty, majesty and power of the land of the Northwest Territories that stretches from the Puget Sound of Washington State, north to the Queen Charlotte Islands of British Columbia. This “epic project” is designed to transport us to the land of deep waters, soaring eagles, snow-capped mountains and lush forests that is at the heart of the Pacific Northwest and lower western Canada.
Known also by its Haida name “Gwaii Haanas,” meaning islands of wonder, the Queen Charlotte Islands are referred to by some as “awe-inspiring.” An archipelago of more than 150 islands, the Queen Charlotte Islands are located 50 miles west of the Canadian mainland and are widely known for their natural beauty, old totems, longhouses and a thriving native culture.
Haida is different in every way, in that it is an electronic music piece that is grand and panoramic in scale which combines high-technology with native and acoustic instruments to paint scenes that are extremely organic in nature. In 24-bit/96k resolution, the 8 tracks of Haida-Raven are highly enjoyable and perfectly illustrate Huber’s spiritual and energetic imagination.
