  Arkenstone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Arkenstone (or "Heart of the Mountain") of Thrain was a wondrous large white gem sought by Thorin Oakenshield in J.
The Arkenstone became the family heirloom of Durin's folk, but was lost when the dragon Smaug captured the mountain from the Dwarves (in the year 2770 of the Third Age).
The Arkenstone, and the great sword Orcrist, was placed on Thorin's chest when he was buried deep under Erebor.

By weaving single instrumental lines with rich percussion textures and sweeping orchestral power, David Arkenstone has been a master of encouraging the imagination of his listeners as he has explored both legendary mythology and accompanying stories that he has created.
The musical environment here is being touted as "sonically free," and Arkenstone provides incredible drama by mixing intimate moments with densely rhythmic energy throughout his impressionistic exploration of the mythical island.
Arkenstone employs a unique harp/flute melody/harmony line to convey the wonder of "The Temple of Poseidon," contemplates the "Jewel of the Sea" with a stark piano melody, and rings in the "Festival of the New Year" with joyful crowd noises and Asian-flavored instrumentation.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Caravan of Light, David Arkenstone, CD
Arkenstone adds evocative keyboard and programming effects to give the impression of sparkling skies and endless shifting sands -- eerily effective on "Jewels of the Night" -- but he also rocks out on guitars and the Russian bouzouki.
While much of the music is delicate and hypnotic and evokes a feeling of exoticness and spirituality, Arkenstone sometimes breaks the spell with the introduction of vocals; one example is "Road to Zanzibar," which features Valerie Fahren where the subtle rhythms of the song are broken by the vocal line.
Arkenstone fans will surely still love this album, but those not familiar with his vast catalog of works might do better to choose one of his classic instrumental compositions.

But to be fair to David Arkenstone, he's always been inspired by the master fantasy author, so the release of this album just happens to be timely.
Yes, it is true that he, like most new age musicians, falls ocasionally in the terrible clichets that plague the genre, but it is also true that the man is a great composer and his music has always something valuable and special, even in his weakest moments.
Arkenstone has the gift of creating sounds that sugest more than they reveal, a cinematic music that evokes and seduces, and with this album he manages to place the listener in the mythic universe of the Middle Earth, opening our eyes and ears with the wonders and the misteries of the ring saga.

 Avantgarde Music. David Arkenstone: biography, discography, reviews, links   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Arkenstone does not always show good taste (check out the Gregorian-like chants over reggae-fied rhythm in Chosen Voices, or the many easy-listening and jazz-rock parentheses, such as The Forgotten Lands, that only detract from the emotional intensity of the main pieces) but his command for orchestration and is awe-inspiring.
In the second half of the 1990s, Arkenstone focused on a new project, Troika, a Santa Barbara-based trio for which Arkestone composed music in his atmospheric/exotic/electronic style.
Troika's Goddess (Enso, 1996) was largely made of unreleased Arkestone tracks, organized around the theme of Kris Waldherr's book "The Book Of Goddesses", where the "Goddess" is the Earth, or, better, Gaia, and the various pieces explore different aspects of the same divinity, of her creative energy.

A musical tour of the mythological underwater continent, ATLANTIS bears all the hallmarks of New Age composer David Arkenstone's craft.
The album is so detailed, dramatic, and grand in scope, that it is not difficult to imagine it as the soundtrack to a major Hollywood blockbuster, with the music's accompanying images spilling across the big screen in dazzling array.
Arkenstone's narrative comes to a head with the majestic feel of tracks like "The Painted Sails" and the tense, tribal percussion on "Fire and Water," completing a dramatic arc that resolves in the calming tones of the album's closer, "Below the Ocean."

David Arkenstone's 15th career album is the most instantly likable package the multi-instrumentalist has assembled since 1991's Grammy-nominated In the Wake of the Wind.
It resembles in tone and structure Arkenstone's "Citizen of the World" and "Spirit Wind," in that it is mostly sedentary slices of music punctuated by the occasional stirring anthem.
I came into the whole Arkenstone scene with "Return of the Guardians," which was (arguably) the final and most effective installment of David's adventurous "trilogy" phase.

David Arkenstone's Citizen of the World is one of two Windham Hill discs up for Best New Age CD this year.
Citizen of the World is truly a world music sampler: from the Andes-inspired "Forest Runners" to the Arabian rhythms of "Desert Crossing," Arkenstone stamps his musical passport in all corners of the globe.
If Arkenstone's disc helps people discover new world music or turn them on to his earlier Narada or Windham Hill releases, Citizen of the World will have achieved much more than a Grammy.
