#Loving life #Nature # soul

AHow to love the world as if it were an extension of our bodies and the mystery of our souls.

This album is inspired by the philosophy of Spinoza (1632-1677).
And more particularly the way he explores the notion of Infinity. How nature is seen as a power of expression of this Infinity.
A metaphysics now considered very contemporary

Excerpts [preferably on headphones]:

Amor Mundi,

is inspired by the thought of Spinoza. For whom Nature is almost divinized, since the entire physical reality, including our bodies and thoughts, is equivalent to the unique and infinite substance.
This is in a way the soundtrack of my encounters with the philosopher.

the themes

It is about Nature, flow, love, secrets, tectonic power, ridges, matrix, dimensions. Indescribable nostalgia for infinite rhythms.

There are melodies, rhythm, layers of sound. A wide variety of musical situations that are encounters between instruments and emotions. An encounter where each part keeps its share of mystery and gains in flavour by being together, but distinct, unique.

In short, they are sound calligraphies…

A sublime instrumental work at the crossroads between Jazz, New-Age and textured Ambient electronics. This composition is both stimulating and soothing with its exceptional musical richness. A sound structure of rare depth that is a true multidimensional auditory journey from which emanates a wisdom of frequencies that is simply incomparable! !

A sensitive composition inviting us to see what grows and blooms in our lives. Nature with its abundant and varied flowers offers an immense field for contemplation, the one that allows us to associate ourselves with the movement of life that presents itself so simply. It is all in the way we look at events, seeing the beauty, and responding to it without expectations, which can open up new possibilities.

I have been fascinated by the musical journeys that Anantakara have taken me on over the last few years; these sojourns of electronic majesty have really been deeply artistic and utterly transfixing. The delight here is that I now have the good fortune to write about this latest release entitled Amor Mundi (Life as an Infinite Flow).



This journey of sight and sound starts with the track Shimmering Times,a piece so addictive to listen to, its ever expanding narrative draws the listener into a whole new realm of electronic magic.
.

Show Me Your Wonder, has a delightful depth about its construction, listen intently to its tones and vast nature, then perhaps like me, you too will be pulled into a world of expressive and expansive brilliance, the staccato stringed elements and the percussive backdrop is all cleverly manipulated into a weave of musical genius which would become something truly special to behold.

Chthonic Memories contained a few effects that I have created on my own electric guitar to open with; this would lead us nicely to a portal of crafted and extremely artistic segments of music, which seemed to all have their own musical spheres to rotate within

As we move deeper into the album I would find one of my personal favourites, this gem is called Sister Moon.

There is something so tranquil and peace filled about this offering, its repeating energies also reminded me a little of an old style Eno offering called Discreet Music. The build here was also well worked, and its electronic nature and heart beat could be felt throughout the remainder of this truly superb offering.

As we nudge the musical envelope further across the table of tone, we come to a really fascinating track called Amo Ergo Sum.

Translated it means I love, therefore I am. This adds so much to its riveting ever onward movement; for me the underpinned fluency and explorative essence of this track made it another personal favourite.

The light textures of this next piece entitled The Riddle of a Soul,


were ones that brought us a fascinating insight into the compositional structure of the album, here we would find subtle and haunting flute sounds that created a wonderful new age feel, partnered with the stylish electronic motifs, it took the piece to a whole new level.

We are now in the second half of this fine collection of compositions, and as we constantly move forwards we find ourselves at a doorway marked Riding The Flickering Crests.

There was a tantalizing smoothness about this track that was deeply addictive, its subtleties altered ones perception in the middle half of the track, as a more percussive energy started to come to the fore, but always with the symbiotic partnership of the albums over all electronic nature.

Amor Mundi (Life As An Infinite Flow) is certainly one of those albums that you must not take your eye off, you may have to listen to it over and again to truly appreciate all the nuances contained within, like this next piece called Deus Sive Natura.

The keyboards manifest an imploring narrative within this piece, while the backdrop of string sounds and percussion do a blissful job of creating a sense of expectancy and tension, in what is the longest track off the album.

We have now entered a realm that is almost multi-fractal in nature; it is called The Matrix Time-Walk. Here is a piece that would be all too easy to get lost within, and in some ways reminds me in music, of the artistic endeavours of the Escher great work entitled Relativity. It is a track that is infinite and ever expanding in its surrealist nature.

The depths we have travelled now become apparent, as we now listen to a composition called A Secret Might.

Here the intensity of the offering is well hidden, allowing the natural order of the arrangement to come through on its own, and audibly grow; this is an amazingly crafted track that one could easily get carried away with, its beautiful sense of suspense and anticipation is a thing to revel in

L’avant-dernière offre s’appelle Strata.

La probabilité toujours présente de l’attente semble commencer à se réaliser ici, alors qu’un rythme percussif se joint à la mêlée et que l’artiste crée quelque chose de spectaculaire et presque cinématographique dans le style d’Isao Tomita.

The penultimate offering is called Irrésistible


and it truly is, and as an end composition one never really knows what is around the corner of this moment of musical cleverness, the bass work is perfect and the following electronic build and progression creates a dynamic and fluent end to what has been a captivating release.

Amor Mundi (Life As An Infinite Flow) is an album that all fans of electronic music, seekers of ambience and worshipers of truly artistic tones will adore, it’s a journey that never ends, but one that will create layer upon layer of expectation, intent and anticipation as you listen. If this appeals to your sense of musical perception, then you need to make this album a home in your musical world as soon as possible.

Just when you think you have heard everything that is beautiful in the genre of electronic music, something always comes along to shake the tree; that just happened with the release of the quite stunning The Riddle Of A Soul by Anantakara.
This lush and at times quite moving opus of electronic brilliance is one of those singles you literally never want to end, the compositional structure, its ambience and performance, all drew me in to a realm as of yet untouched, and by its conclusion, one that would leave me wanting more.
The Riddle Of A Soul is nothing more than six minutes of musical magic by Anantakara, and one that I truly believe could be quite popular with the listeners and fans alike.

Another fine album by Anantakara who used the lockdown in this corona crisis to reflect on some of the emotions that this special period has triggered in people. By describing and perhaps reliving these emotions, he takes us to a state of mind of serenity. He does it the way we are used to with a palette of synthesizers with an emphasis on classical sounds. The album opens with an ethereal voice that initially takes us into a silent verbal trance to culminate after a while in a gently undulating sequencer river. In Alluvium we hear tinkling bells with an intriguing loop in the background that radiates a certain threat. Handsome in its simplicity. In Serenity, after about 3 minutes, the melancholy melody slowly but surely settles in our heads and never lets go. As the song unfolds further, hope slowly floats to the surface. Here is the state of mind that I love so much. The wise and reflecting lake reads and listens as a poetic visual description. Walking again is a nice rhythmic exercise seasoned with all kinds of mysterious sounds. The first sounds of Link to the mountain seems to take us to an oriental temple, but soon a disturbed rhythm takes over. It’s obvious that the mountain demands a steady effort from the listener. At the end of this beautiful album we are further spoiled with a fantastic video where Anantakara visualizes his own state of mind through a revival of the beautiful track Serenity.
