When ONE DOOR CLOSES

ANOTHER  OPENS

Ranjit Makkuni, solo sitar

A musical exploration of scales on a sitar, accompanied by pads and Gyuto monks' choir.

The sitar guides us on a meditative journey, as if an aging musician has snapped out of his 'illusions' and squarely facing the transience of life, recalling all the hardships he has endured. This journey through the challenges of life is expressed through various scales, some of which are dissonant with the original base of minor key.

The scales twist and turn around the most difficult passages, leading the meditator back to his ‘spiritual’ home, to reveal that joy remains waiting for him at the end.

Mahamaya Experience transcends genres, weaving Southeast Asian mysticism with Modern jazz rock vibrancy. Ranjit Makkuni's sitar sings soulfully amidst pulsating rhythms, painting sonic tapestries that prepare you to be enchanted.

Review

"A Sitar's Meditative Journey: A Musical Exploration of Life's Transience

The sitar's introspective melody is further elevated by the backdrop of base pads and synthesizers, which create a magical aura reminiscent of a starry night sky in Chiang Rai, with meteors streaking across the horizon. This cosmic landscape adds a sense of awe and wonder to the already introspective mood of the composition.

As the musician plucks the strings of the sitar, the dissonance between the scales and the original minor key creates a tension that mirrors the challenges and hardships endured in life. However, the backdrop of the base pads and synthesizers, with their ethereal and otherworldly quality, offer a sense of comfort and solace, reminding us that there is beauty and hope even in the midst of difficulty.

 

This composition is not just a musical masterpiece but also a profound meditation on the human condition, inviting the listener to reflect on their own life's journey and the transient nature of existence. The magical backdrop of base pads and synthesizers serves as a reminder that the universe is vast and full of wonder, and that our struggles are just a small part of a larger, more mysterious whole.
