Already on his debut album 'Dawn' from 1969, the American multi-instrumentalist Don Robertson coloured a magic ethnic sound with his 80-string guitar-zither and multiple other instruments. On 'Celestial Ascent', exclusively on tape in 1980, it's the only instrument used for a timeless journey into the depths of the soul and psyche. Traditionally designed for the accompaniment of the singing of psalms in religious communities, here the zither is seen also as the perfect way to explore the power and the formal purity of the natural pentatonic scales of eastern derivation. The music of Robertson can be compared with the sacred sounds of artists like Stephan Micus, Paul Horn or Deuter.
