Naturally, this new recording has far superior sonics to Barshai’s, but I still commend his interpretation to you as well. Many cultures around the world have musical traditions that fall under the category of art music, although it typically excludes most popular and traditional, tribal, or folk music. In the Western world, it includes what is known as classical music and some types of jazz or blues. In the Eastern world, it includes many cultural music genres, including, but certainly not limited to, Indian Hindustani classical music, Indonesian gamelan music, and European medieval chants. Around the world, music traditions have used elements that are not readily apparent to most listeners unfamiliar with the tradition. Many music lovers dislike entire genres of music simply because they have never learned what makes the music different from their favorite genres of music.

With dancefloors in mind Pandhora and Tim Kari created ‘Farewell’, a track that stands out for its energy and refined sound synthesis. A long emotional break precedes an intense, progressive and grandiose drop. Scabeni’s ‘Swank and Hatter’ seduces the listener with the metallic textures present throughout the piece. A futuristic mixture between jazz and eastern notations achieves a spacey feeling to play with from dawn to dusk. This release wouldn’t be complete without a track from 9DEEP and Veytik!

‘Pavamana’ by Ben and Vincent, is a walk through the jungle with colorful sounds of rattles, cosmic flutes and currents of hot air. An enveloping voice guides the listener, suggesting gently where to venture next. Gobi Desert Collective and Copal join the label with their track ‘Ambedo’, a darker release that maintains the fresh personality of the Art Vibes collective.
