Hitoshi Kojo (aka Spiracle) finds it difficult to fall asleep. Ananta urges the listener toward a dreamless sleep-state, while reflecting the glowing warmth of a blossoming sunrise. To finely tuned drones extracted from a Dilruba and a Sarangi, Kojo merges sympathetic field recordings and other tonal interferences alongside the instrumental sounds. The results are elliptically static drones that brightly shimmer with hues of gold, crimson, and aquamarine. One of the two variations of Ananta was released in 2006 as a micro-edition CDR through Mystery Sea; tiny churning textures stream along a linear path, nearly achieving infinity, which happens to be the translation from Sanskrit of "ananta." If you find Roland Kayn, Yoshi Wada, or Charlemagne Palestine hypnotic, you'll want to check this out. The Strato Version of Ananta is previously unreleased. It bends and undulates around a fundamental drone, while maintaining the sun-flecked glints magnified in the Mystery Sea version. Limited to 300 copies
