about

Loren and Mark’s electro-acoustic debut merges the ambient soundworlds of Southeast Asia, North & South America with the spiritual influences of Bali and India. One part droney soundscape, one part tribal deliberation, and one part ethnological exploration, Tree of Life expands into a transformative experience. Loren’s deep understanding of Balinese music, coupled with his expertise in sound engineering, effortlessly complements Mark’s Bansuri flutes and harmonic overtone vocals and chants. Supported by Sarangi maestro Pankaj Mishra from India, and up-and-coming percussionist Max Link from Germany, the release follows up on ideas sparked during Loren and Mark’s first time on stage together at the 2010 SoundQuest Fest in Tuscon Arizona.

“The Tree of Life is a nearly universal symbol found in many different spiritual and mythological traditions around the world,” Loren explains. “It symbolizes the interconnection of all life to our planet. From these many different traditions the names for each song were taken, many of which literally mean the Tree of Life.”

Tree of Life is a mesmerizing blend of ancient instruments, haunting voices, and whispers of Balinese and Indian wisdom traditions woven together with ambient field recordings; it takes the listener on a subtle, interconnected journey of life.
