This music has been recorded in a variety of locations- Grand Homes, ancient buildings , peoples rooms, studios there is an openess, a rawness. They want to show you landscapes, soundscapes and emotions. You will hear instruments from many different countries and cultures, and everything apart from a few synths has been played in real time, by real musicians.
