Net Dot Music (NDM WFM 04)
Produced, arranged, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Gino Foti
This recording was Inspired by several "East meets West" jazz-rock artists that incorporate Indian culture. In this recording Foti combined traditional Vedic mantras with modern instrumentation with the focus being the Taittiriya Upanishad, one of the most important writings of ancient Indian thought.
The Vedic chanting on this album was been recited with the same accents, measures, emphasis, sequences, and rhythms for millenia and so Foti worked hard to juxtapose as many non-Indian elements and styles as possible to the arrangements, without sacrificing any of the devotional mood or integrity of the sacred texts while striving to add as much power, energy, and dense orchestration as he could, using compositional techniques that are not usually associated with mantric arrangements.
