Djinnestan – [2004] Rain 1

When I first encountered this release over ten years ago, I did not like it right away. I just was not yet prepared to accept something this non-musical as background ambience. But if you accept that good background “music” does not have to follow a traditional song structure, you’re in for a hell of a ride. So, darken your room, lower the volume and do something else while this 74 minute track teleports you into an enchanted forest…

Rain 1 is the single track of this release. It is meant to be played as the acoustic backdrop for calm activities (meditation, writing, going to sleep). The repetitive nature of its subtle sounds is a feature, not a bug.
