2022 Celestial Harmonies (CD)
AAtmanaut is New Zealand-based master synthesist and world music explorer David Parsons' 20th release with Celestial Harmonies. Originally released in 2018 as digital only, this double CD is now available. His music remains highly revered worldwide, with the respect earned by a life-long dedication to the art and spirituality of sound steeped in the roots of classic European electronic music, Northern Indian music and years of indigenous location recordings in Cambodia, India, the middle east, Tibet and beyond.
Atmanaut adroitly blends a perfect balance of analog and digital synthesizers, exotic trance inducing rhythmic elements, and east Indian instruments into a landscape of timeless atmospherics and dronescapes steeped in a place of yearning and mystical realms.
Atman is a Sanskrit word that refers to the Self or self-existent essence of human beings, as distinct from ego, mind and embodied existence. The term is often translated as soul, or "Self", as it solely refers to pure consciousness or witness-consciousness beyond identification with phenomena.
