Zen Hanami is a project of the artist Ingo Ito (Camouflage/Rain On Bamboo). Influenced by musicians like Brian Eno or Harold Budd, this new series of ambient soundscape music is specifically composed and produced for those listeners, who want to create for themselves an atmosphere of tranquility - ideal for contemplation and meditation or just for relaxing from the daily rush.
This recording instantly brings one to a place of deep peace and centered relaxation. Shastros lush clarinet melodies meld with Nadamas brilliant piano strokes to form an exquisite alchemy. Indeed, the two musicians seem to be in perfect syncronicity with each other, with nature and with the profound spiritual force that inspired this music.
Vlasta Marek, a zen teacher and sound therapist from Prague, journalist and lecturer since the 1970s , his sounds come to life through a technique he calls sound bathing, opening up new notions of time and space.
