Purple Crow If only my garden were as beautiful as these sounds. The exquisite nature of this album cannot be overstated. If you need an oasis, you've just found one. :>

Dotflac I discovered Porya Hatami with his release Land ; the diversity and life he gave to his field recordings amazed me. And I'm happy to find again this feeling of reality emanating from The Garden.

Each chapter of this album is structured around an inhabitant of our verdant spaces, and thanks to Porya's sensitivity and attention to detail, we shrink to the size of an insect, free to witness what we don't usually see.

The Garden will bring you peace and lighten your thoughts during 43 minutes. Favorite track: Ladybug.

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.
