An amazing adventure of a musicological and botanical research on the psychoacoustic qualities of the Green World recorded in 1986-89. It’s the investigation of an organic symbiosis, real and mysterious at the same time, between the pharmacological properties of the plant and the sound emitted by the same material essence. From the single natural element comes the vibration permeating the whole Universe; an indissoluble binomial for which "everything that makes up existence contains the information of itself in all its parts". Here, the visionary Walter Maioli (Aktuala, Futuro Antico, Synaulia) collaborates with the music therapist and eclectic composer Agostino Nirodh Fortini, for more than thirty years specialist in the field of sound and video applied to body therapies and meditation. By exposing the archetype breath of the stem, slowing its speed and manipulating and filtering it electronically, the two explorers get a bath of harmonic games with purifying and regenerating powers; a deep and nebulous drone inhabited by insects, alien sounds similar to the vibrates of Fender Rhodes or tonal interludes with plays of stones in the water, on the surface of an inner lake, learning to observe and dive into love and awareness.
This is one of my all time favourite albums and made a huge impression on my own music. Think psych/ritual/ambient/trance - the live performance takes it to another level. So glad to have this on vinyl! :D ADAM CASEY
