Stepping away from the pressures of the music business and embracing full creative freedom, Jneiro Jarel has created Flora, the first issue of the Viberian trilogy that will make up his next full length release. The project is unforced, happening as it comes, and expresses a new place of appreciation for the true heart of the planet. Spinning off from the 2010 release ‘Fauna’, Flora sonically evokes images of plant life and the interconnectivity of all things. Musically sampling elements of the earth - animal sounds, bird calls, human sounds - Flora takes you somewhere else. The listener is forced to give up on definition and travel with the sound.
Flora is ubiquitous; it is in many places simultaneously. Places that you know, places that you don’t. It is a lush soundscape that is lonely and comforting at the same time. It makes you think in ways that are familiar yet unusual. It delivers a deep sense of respect for life.
