We're happy to help spread a few copies of the latest offering from HIRAM, with a blessing of environmental sound, cosmic oxygen tone, and electro-acoustic drift, gently transmitted from the cold Northern Midwest.
"Air Songs" is a collection of recent solo improvisations, live outdoor sessions, and meditative studio works from HIRAM, recorded from Winter-Spring of 2022.
The music is focused on the universality of breath, and the concept of honoring air as the great force of life, equalizer, birth bringer, and author of all stories.
"All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man... the air shares it's spirit with all the life it supports." - Chief Seattle
