Brian D’Souza a.k.a. Auntie Flo invites an international cast of players to stretch out on two 15 minute jams inspired by R Murray Schafer’s idea of The Soniferous Garden - “a place of acoustic delights” or a space to retreat from the oppressive overabundance of acoustic info that saturates the modern industrial world.
To be completely fair you could apply that idea to a lot of other music, too, but it forms a nice conceptual backdrop for the organic weave of Hakim Kiwanuka’s Adungu (a Ugandan 10 string harp) with Gio Kiyingi’s floating vocals and d’Souza’s more conventional electronics in the title track and better yet in the lilting rhythmelodic cadence of Rainfall On Red Earth, making great use of Mama N’Dieck Seck Thiam nimble talking drum technique.
