ALONE IN THE HOLLOW GARDEN was conceived in spring 2013 as a TANZ OHNE MUSIK (Out on GALAKTHORRO) side project, the dark ambient and ritual side of Dan Serbanescu, analogue synthesizers are merging with microphone captured textures of wind instruments, improvised percussion, metal springs...
This is the second full length collaboration between "ALONE IN THE HOLLOW GARDEN" and "NAM-KHAR".
A very personal meditation fuelled by the ancestral tibetan & hindu spiritual magic.
The transcendental power of vibration and sound is exalted by the presence of the ancient mantra chanting practice and is meant to transcend the tamasic heaviness of the actual world, hollowed and stripped by the most valuable aspect of all, the awareness and realization of Oneself as a mirror of the Cosmos, Mother Nature and of all living beings.
A large variety of ritual implements like tibetan bells, singing bowls, rol-mo cymbals, damaru drums, kangling are merged together with other traditional acoustic instruments like turkish saz, melodium, flutes, seed shakers and with a few self made piezoelectric devices, analogue synthesizers, drum machines and throat singing to create an unique offering which will transport the listener into the realm of true ritual musick, a meddicine for Body, Speech and Mind.
The secret of understanding the core of these ancient teachings isn't the "religious" approach that is so often confounded with the true spiritual path. All the deities present in the tibetan and hindu sacred texts are not to be seen as external entities which can influence and control our existence, but rather as archetypes and dynamics of the human soul and mind that are existing in everyone of us and that can assist us in our evolution. May "Gyalwa Gyamtso", The Ocean of Infinite Awareness & Compassion, guide you on your path to liberation.
