Auroville-based Japanese artist Jyoti Naoki Eri has just launched a new label called Nādāsana with the compilation ‘Inter-Galactic Sonar Communication Probe Vol. 1’.
The 13-track release is tied with the fictional concept of creating a record that will serve as a form of sonic communication on a space probe to the Andromeda Galaxy in the year 2102. Consequently, the direction has generated ambient compositions that range from representing earthly traditions to imagining the sci-fi noises of discovering light years of the universe.
Alongside featuring India or India-based acts like Kolkata’s Varun Desai aka Yidam, New Delhi’s Vaibhav Batra aka Psychopanda, Jyoti’s own moniker Atomic Phantom, and Jatinder Singh Durhailay, who plays the Dilruba and Taus, the compilation includes artists from Belgium, Australia, Norway, UK (notably Matt Black aka Double Cushion, the co-founder of Ninja Tunes and one-half of Coldcut), Israel, Sweden and Italy.
