"Manoyatri" (The Mind Voyager) takes you through a transcending voyage that is spiritual, divine and pure and each tracks gives you a narrative with a varied experience of connection, wisdom, timelessness, serenity, self-realization, love and synchronicity that establishing a sense of ultimate peace.
There is equal emphasis regarding craftsmanship for both melody & rhythm.
In context to melodic technicalities, the compositions are firmly rooted in the earthy tones of Indian Classical music and are multimodal and based on progressive tonality embellished with heterophonic musical textures. Hence, the musical form branches out into diverse genres exemplifying the essence of global music.
On the rhythmic technicalities, these compositions are created over unconventional and intricate rhythmic time cycles that are also syncopated in nature. Time cycles like 9/4, 11/4, 13/4, 15/4 dominate in each composition respectively, and in some there are transitions to the usual 3/4 and 4/4.
There is involvement of 22 musicians and 12 individuals contributing to recording, mix & master from countries like India, Australia, USA and UK.
