Scott August is a nationally acclaimed composer, producer, keyboardist and Native American flute player. His recording Sacred Dreams was Native American Music Award winner. August began his musical training on cello and piano, and became interested in world music when he was given as African kalimba at age 10. He discovered Native American flutes in 1996 during a trip to the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico. Its haunting sound captivated him, and he soon began adding native flutes to his recordings.
August is also a noted composer and producer of music for films and video and has, since 1989, composed music and sound design for hundreds of films, commercials and video projects, for clients such as NASA, The Discovery Channel, Lexus, Chevrolet, HBO, Nabisco, Minolta and many others. His music was featured in the Olympic village during the '96 Olympics in Atlanta, and one of his projects for NASA is on permanent display at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
August once again gives us his unique vision of the Western spiritlands by blending haunting Native American flute solos, gently pulsing drums, indigenous voices, soft guitars and soothing textures, that are delicately interwoven with the natural sounds of the Colorado Plateau. August skillfully adds clay flutes and whistles from Meso-America; kalimbas and udus from Africa; Kachina shakers and the mysterious agnoc denút, into an enchanting tapestry, creating intimate portraits of the people and places of the Southwest. August’s music resonates through timeless canyons, letting your soul free and your spirit wander.
