Ozora Festival 2014

Ozora 2014 - www.sangitasounds.com

Ozora Festival returns once again, as a Portal to the Immortal for thousands of Psychedelic Travellers to find unity in the tribal reality and conscious community of the magical, the musical and the Mystical.

SPECTRALITE have been invited to play on the chillout stage and they are excited to share mystic music from the divine realms of transcendental bliss and the deep tantric veils of reality that will be lifted in the sonic aghori  tradition. Spectralite is the joint musical project from Greg Hunter (Dubsahara) and Darren Sangita (Ashirvad)

WAVESHAPER have also been invited to share sounds from their debut album, Empty Path.  Hataken and Dubsahara join forces to weave their original blend of electroacoustic magic and massage the time-space matrix of illusory reality until audio truth reveals itself!

SUNS OF ARQA are also scheduled to appear on the Dragons Nest Stage at Ozora.  The line up will feature founder members Wadada & Angel Eye, alongside longtime collaborator Youth (on Bass) and the drummer form African Headcharge as well as Darren Sangita who has been invited to bring some electroacoustic dubs to the performance.

With a line up featuring the best and brightest sonic stars in all the respective fields, this promises to be another magical mystery tour to remember….

Cloud Shaped by Metasurfing

Metasurfing = Dubsahara = Evolution in metamorphose agglutinous phonemes.   In 1999 when this album was produced, only a handfull of sonic surfers had caught onto a new wave of sound. Granular synthesis is arguably the latest form of synthesis in the relatively short history of Synthesized sounds which evolved because raw computing power had allowed for high level Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to occur in realtime.

Metasurfing aka Greg Hunter was one of the sonic pioneers of Granular synthesis who produced what we know as the first Granular Synthesis Fusion album back in 1999.  The exceptional fusion of previously unheard granulated sounds and processed global rhythms & melody made for a novel Sonosphere that remain a uniquely enchanting experience .  It has long been on the Sangita Sounds playlist and we are in grains of delight at the re-release of this modern classic.

An excerpt from an article on Granular Synthesis:-

Granular synthesis is a catch-all term for a number of different audio systems that work by using tiny snippets of sound that can be manipulated individually and are recombined to generate the final output. The majority of granular systems available use audio files/samples as their raw material. Samples are sliced up (behind the scenes) into a series of tiny sections, each usually between one 100th and one 10th of a second in duration. Each slice is known as a ‘grain’, and a sequence of grains is called a ‘graintable’. If the software made up a graintable which played back all the grains extracted from a given sample in their original sequence and at the original speed, then you’d hear the original sample reproduced. If the software played the sequence back more slowly, gaps would appear between the slices, so the current slice in the graintable is usually looped. Played back more quickly, each grain overlaps with the next one, or some grains get skipped depending on how the software works. To avoid clicks and glitches, each grain is faded in and out with a volume envelope, a process known as ‘smoothing’.
