In his third Logical Drift project, veteran musician, composer and producer, John Matarazzo (Herbie Hancock, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Ravi Shankar) releases “The Americas: Book of Love Vol.1” – a true ambient adventure throughout Central and South America.
Traveling through the Andean Altiplano in Chile, Peru and Venezuela and following the backbone of mountain ridges up through Mexico; through the deep forests and high plateaus one can hear ancient sounds echoing through the ancient lands forever. Sounds made by the Incas centuries ago; Sounds made by the Maya when their culture flourished. The sounds of the Aztec and Quichua as they raised their instruments in celebration, praise, joy and sadness.
Matarazzo mentions, “These sounds fill my ears and I let them dwell in me. They become part of my musical consciousness as I explore the sonorities and sense of place and time that the sounds evoke.”
Ancient dwellings in time and space all but lost and forgotten or remembered and longed for in a quite space rising from the hidden forest and thrusting mountain peaks; pouring through undulating cascades like gentle veils enfolding the mountains and jungle and revealing a deep sense of oneness with creation.
