Well that’s my word for the day, meaning “thriving in habitats having an abundance of rain”, the title of this album is now explained to all you who cannot be arsed with a dictionary. It sounds very pretty too, being a fine sonic experiment in playing and multi-tracking the recording of porcelain bowls which, much like Tibetan singing bowls, make a truly delicious and wholesome chiming sound when cleverly combined with lashings of life’s most precious fluid (in varying capacities), which in turn accentuates further this profoundly spiritual and meditative sound.
Tomoko has apparently laced this album with snatches of field recordings taken in Southern India, the relation to this project being that the last master of Jalatarangam (a traditional Indian musical appliance which was this recording’s inspiration) was apparently Aanayampatti Ganesan, who resides down there in Chennai. So there. Very calming and zen-like throughout, I dare you to feel violent and aggressive after listening to this baby. Lovely crisp pressing too...
