Boomkat Product Review:
'Sagara' was borne as a carte blanche commission by the Norwegian festival Øya for Diskjokke in 2009. Effectively he had a return ticket anywhere in the world to work with some musicians and settled upon Bandung, Java, to record and make music with the Sambasunda Gamelan group (good choice, fella!). After two weeks recording everything from their traditional instruments to city noise and "pulsating hot mountain springs" he returned to Oslo and created this sumptuous album. These six tracks (perhaps unknowingly) nod the the expansive nature of classic Global Communications, Brian Eno and Tangerine Dream, but also with a mixture of instinctively lush Scandinavian ambience (think earlier Biosphere, Deathprod, Köner et al) with the innate resonance of the Javanese instruments, creating an earthbound but skyward-gazing sound with a sincerity and sweetness which may take you by surprise. Ace.
