back to artists page

Written, Performed & Produced by Robert Berry
With the help of Tempest's Lief Sorbye and Michael Mullen;
Lisa Bouchelle; and Andy Frazier


Cover art by Darrell K. Sweet

The Wheel of Time series of fantasy novels is one of the most successful, longest running and most closely followed of all the works in this genre. Author Robert Jordan's brilliantly-written saga has legions of avid fans throughout the world. Since 1990, these lush tales have been at the top of the New York Times Best Sellers list. Described as a modern-day Tolkien, Jordan has created a universe inhabited by wildly imaginative characters and mythical creatures.

Magna Carta has created A Soundtrack for 'The Wheel Of Time', which is designed not only to be the perfect musical accompaniment for the books but also to stand alone as a great listening experience. Recording artist, songwriter and producer Robert Berry has created a musical environment which reflects the drama and action found in the words of Robert Jordan. Berry has taken a musical path that suits the style of books so well that it becomes hard to imagine any other approach but this one.

Making the musical comparison of Robert Berry's A Soundtrack for 'The Wheel Of Time' to a type of "Celtic Pink Floyd," early listeners and fans of the books were thrilled with the manner in which the music delivered the cinematic images described in the books of Robert Jordan. Berry has been recognized as a quality artist ever since his early years with the band "3" (along with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer).

Contributing to the continuity of The Wheel of Time series of books is the CD's cover art, which was painted by renowned fantasy artist Darrell K. Sweet. Sweet's paintings have graced the covers of all nine of The Wheel of Time books and it was only fitting that he created a new cover for the CD.

A Soundtrack for 'The Wheel Of Time' is officially authorized by Robert Jordan. "Music has always been an integral part of my writing," says Jordan. "Not only do I write to music, but I think of my writing in terms of music. The words must flow in certain rhythms, and the story has its own rhythms. In a way, it's like orchestrating the characters."
