Styles: Ambient, Electronic

Jarguna writes:

My 41st album is meant to be a moment of freedom, carefree and light. As a dark and mysterious age envelops the future of humanity, uncertain worry arises. With NEOGENE we reconnect with Mother Earth and a previous time of plenty.

The Neogene is a great epoch that appeared about 23 million years ago when the dinosaurs were already extinct for 40 million years. It is a period where the great predators are roughly those we still know, but man is not yet the protagonist. The Earth is still in its primitive state — that is no one has yet changed the course of rivers, plowed the land or felled trees, except nature itself.

The sound texture of this album is a light ambient with acoustic "scents” — strings, harps, piano, distant voices with synthesis structures and loops. They want to accompany the listener to sweet, idyllic moments as close to nature as possible. I imagine lush forests, full of biodiversity, small and large paradises distributed everywhere. The greatest therapy for the human being is to reconnect with Mother Earth in a peaceful way; life is not competition or desire for conquest since we already have everything. We are a present but discreet observer, participatory but not aggressive, respectful but completely enveloped with all senses open and receptive.

In NEOGENE there is no mystery, no challenging spiritual tests — it is a heavenly and imaginary era where everything is at one's disposal.
