Olivier & Pavlin, a.k.a Tears Of A Prophet are offspring from Italian immigrant family and Polish-Ukrainian immigrant family, both born in Montreal, Canada, both had a wealth of international background to create such diverse sounds and moods on a modern digital canvas called a compact disc.
Stepping away from their usual dance and pop songs that were constantly produced by Olivieri & Pavlin; Tears Of A Prophet was born. Tears Of A Prophet was their way to escape the music realm that they had created for over 10 years. The soothing sounds of world music along with electronica made for a diversified creation. Tears Of A Prophet takes you from one end of the planet to the other; Passage Of Time includes the many influences both had in their lives. The movements on the album bring your emotions from melancholy to romance to sorrow to happiness, all with a twist of international rhythms. Passage Of Time was not created for anyone else but for their family, the album was their way of saying, sorry we cant be there at this moment, as Olivieri & Pavlin were working over 70-80 hour work-weeks on their various productions, and both were obviously missed by their family. Passage Of Time was a labor of love for both of them, and took over 2 years to complete and over 6 months to mix down. The rich sounds that tickle and fancy ones ears makes one feel like they are passing through time, hence the title of the album (the title itself was probably the hardest thing we had to create for this album).
Once completed, both Olivieri & Pavlin sadly broke up their music relationship and went their separate ways. Passage Of Time was finally released a further 3 years after that, in the summer of 2000 because of the many compliments it had earned from their family and friends who had heard it. The album was even named album of the month on a nationally syndicated radio show called Par Quarte Chemin on the Canadian national station CBC Radio in December 2001.
With influences from Art Of Noise, Enya, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Passage Of Time hits home for any true world music fan. The mesmerizing collage of traditional instruments from the furthest regions of Africa as well as the mystics of Asia not to mention the chanting of Gregorian monks and never forgetting the Native Indians of North America. The haunting sounds of whales as they are mating makes one think how truly happy they really are. All songs are blended with artistic rhythms and melodies not heard in years by any other group. Passage Of Time truly a classic in any persons collection.
