The Harmonic Lyre of Pierre Jean Croset

ok here is an "on brand" post: the kind of ethereal, meditative and mystical aural shenanigan somewhat typical of this blog (besides the gangsta booty bass lol)

truth is when i first heard this grandly titled recording i was somewhat underwhelmed and thought it dull (was kind of expecting an instant out of body experience). but after a few listens, and in the right mood for this kind of understated almost furniture soundstrack, its subtle beauty really seeped in.

from what i understand this is the singular work of one man on the 18 stringed Harmonic Lyre of his own design; but of course drawing upon vast sound traditions from many cultures.
