In his sixth record release under the Logical Drift project, veteran music writer, composer and producer, John Matrazzo creates yet another collection of psychological dreamscapes and aural environments that evoke spiritual responses from the listener in ‘Pacific Journey’. The knowledge of ancient spiritual systems Matarazzo possesses, especially through two decades of field recordings in sacred lands stretching from Tibet to Indonesia (along the Pacific), culturally touches on multi-instrumentational, authentic soundscapes that heighten the listeners’ sense of wellness and tranquility.
The 11-tracks presented on Pacific Journey features instruments like sitar, tabla, sarod, acoustic guitars, synths, percussion, gamelan gongs, as well as orchestral Elements, choir and harmonium.
Pacific Journey was conceived and created as a response to the beauty and grandeur of the islands scattered throughout the wide expanse of the South Pacific Ocean. On journeys from Bali to Sumatra to Guam and across the Polynesian archipelago, Matarazzo was struck by the Immense spaces and tranquil atmosphere of these lands surrounded by deep blue waters. The people, mystical and yet matter of fact, in their daily comings and goings create a sense of mystery in their response to the incredible beauty surrounding them.
