Daniel Dorobanthu is a musician from Romania, whose “Knock on the Sky and listen to the Sound” is a peaceful, dreamy journey with strong Zen-inspired and contemplative elements.
Recorded in 2007 and 2008, the music (split into seven tracks) uses generative electro and acoustic techniques, ending up in a peculiar mixture of bell and environmental sounds next to abstract/experimental edged drone tapestries.
Together they lead the way into vibrant, atmospheric and immersive spaces of wonder, although I wouldn’t call the outcome a contemplative, soothing affair. The almost eerie, hypnotizing vibe in the highly improvised and edgy music is the reason for that.
