Storyline

After an excerpt from 'Baraka (1992)', featuring the music of Dead Can Dance, we see them in concert in Santa Monica CA, alternated with interview sequences with the lead members (Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry) where they discuss their influences (Asian/Mid-Eastern music and Irish ballads), their instrumentation (Chinese dulcimer, various percussion, synthesizers), and their different approaches to lyrics (he sings words, she doesn't).

A DVD copy of TOWARD THE WITHIN is included with the DEAD CAN DANCE 1981-1998 boxed set, along with other videos. This boxed set might be the only chance to get a DVD of this performance. By the way, Mark Magidson also produced BARAKA (1992), and the DVD offers excerpts from the film in which Dead Can Dance music was featured.
