"Ahad's Masters Garden III: The Harmonian Blues" is a new double CD co-released by AudioTong and Fourth Dimension Records.
These two discs capture Budapest's prolific and versatile musician, Zsolt Sőrés, in a fully tranced-out fug that draws not only from his background in rock music but also his strong leanings towards the avant-garde and improvisation partly formed by being classically-trained yet never content to remain as such.
In turn, we are treated to some near-mystical and transcendental journeys through a contemporary psychedelia at once recalling Taj Mahal Travellers and the spaceward-bound forays of early Pink Floyd and Can as well as Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock with their grizzled Dadaism and Lee Ranaldo's expansive and drone-bound guitar textures.
Inspired by Fourier's Harmonian Opera and several quotations by Hakim Bey, Sőrés' has here created an album that resonates with depth of a nature rarely found these days.
