HATI - Metanous

Format: CD
Label & Cat.Number: Zoharum ZOHAR 107-2
Release Year: 2015
Note: the Polish "gong-droners" return with a very subtle & contemplative album, completely based on handplayed ethnic instruments; the rhythmic parts are more restraint as before, and through the use of didgeridoo & flutes this has also a charming 'exotic' edge... very nice !
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €12.00

More Info

" 'Metanous' is HATI's third album on Zoharum, but the first one including new material. Two years after releasing "Wild Temple" CD (MonotypeRec., 2013) the band is back with a new album which is a summary of the period 2011-2012 when the musicians performed as a trio of Rafał Iwański, Rafał Kołacki and Robert Darowski. It's the next time in their history when the duo changed their line-up to expand the sonic formula and create music of a slightly different nature. In the case of "Metanous" the weight of percussion is balanced by the sound of the didgeridoo which exists here not so much as an addition, but a fully-fledged instrument. As usual, you can hear many other instruments making up the sonic world of HATI from the very beginning of the band. Here you can find gongs, drums, bells, found objects, horns and other wind instruments. The sound generated in this new interaction is rich, song structures are usually complex, often based on a dialogue of characteristic
gong-based rhythms with didgeridoo and several other instruments played by Robert Darowski. Here are also acoustic drone explorations, equally important in the music of the group. Once again HATI reveals a new, hidden face. By re-building their line-up or inviting new members or collaborators (so far they include Z'EV, Dariusz Brzostek, Slawomir Ciesielski), Rafał Iwański and Rafał Kołacki still explore new sonic areas."
