The soundscape of “The Garden” forms from whispers and murmurs of rural nature, from that noiseless noise which lives in the summer air that are captured in a macro mode, so one can almost touch.
Like a sluggish snail, the music ploughs its way through blades of grass, like a humming bee, it glides smoothly down to a flower, and like a firefly, it shimmers at cool evening twilight.
Porya Hatami invites the listener to take a leisurely journey through green labyrinths together with fluttering, creeping and buzzing creatures, thus taking us back to the primeval garden and its “objective reality”.
Atmospheric in a summer way, meditative in the Oriental style and just beautiful music.
The CD comes as regular (lim.150) and special (lim. 50) editions. Last version includes a lavender flower, 6 photo inserts (12x12 cm) on matte paper (200 gr.) that go in a tea and grass handmade colored envelope sewn up in hessian bag.
