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

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

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.
