about

ATTN: CD RELEASE MAR.30 AT LULA LOUNGE in TORONTO

Avataar's music has drawn comparison to Mahavishnu Orchestra, Keith Jarrett with Jan Garbarek, late Coltrane, and Oregon. The resulting confluence is a mesmerizing blend of rhythmic hypnotism, sonic landscapes and soaring melody that marries ancient and modern musical sounds. Cleverly layered and cinematic in scope, the music drives and swirls through a vast sonic palette. The album is questing in nature - the concepts of impermanence and universal consciousness feature in many of the compositions, as do first-rate musical interpretations and improvisations highlighting guitar, saxophone and vocals.

Track Name: Infinite Open
no mind in the wave
no mind in the song
gaps in the race
space in sequence of ray and shadow
softened pace, and still

but still and yet it moves
until, of its own will
looks with love
from the heart of the world

no mind in the void and the gaze
where an infinite open is your sky
Track Name: Petal (the space between)
we live in the space between petals
in the subtle breath between one blur and another
opening as time
overlapping impossible gestures that we can feel
moving in ways we don’t know that we know

lose time, lose the flow
the bloom’s location is unknown
press the matter, lost forever

what surges in the break,
and this breach itself, are true;
we live in the movement
of a petal’s open undoing
