Ashta, new electronic music album explores 7 valleys towards enlightenment
electronic music new album released !
Ashta by Philippe Wauman & Frédéric Gerchambeau is an art form all of its own, it is a wonderfully symbiotic amalgamation of electronic music styles, one that to be honest I enjoyed immensely. Each track is a tale to be told on its own, and it is the perfect release for the listener who loves a musical adventure, taking ones as it goes, as the journey through Ashta is fascinating, intriguing, and enlightening. ( Steve Sheppard)
Two composers (Frédéric GERCHAMBEAU and Philippe WAUMAN aka ANANTAKARA) of electronic music with totally different styles and horizons wanted to create a common sound journey for the album ASHTA.
ASHTA means eight in Sanskrit. The sacred language of India. The album is composed of eight valleys to cross, associated with fine stones. Seven moments of a journey towards an eighth, the accomplishment, or enlightenment. It is the staggered progression found in all traditions that has been the common thread of this musical project.
We have asked a painter (Brigitte Schùermans) to accompany our creations with unpublished digital paintings, the original videos of which can be found alongside each title in the digital edition.
