1. My Temple

A 67-minute meditation from Italy’s jarguna.

Jarguna writes:

With this track I start a sound journey dedicated to relaxation, meditation or holistic practices.

I have been composing, recording environmental situations and experimenting with different instruments since the mid 90s, even if it wasn’t until 2006 that I started producing albums.

I practice martial arts, I have been teaching Kung-Fu and Taiji for over twenty years, I study music and shamanic ceremonies on the spot, although I interpret a lot with synthesizers, but in this track the protagonist is the Koshi, a wind chime in different melodic scales, which I have shaped through sampling by varying the intonations and octaves, transforming this small instrument sometimes into Tibetan bells, sometimes into a small music box.

The reverb and a few Pad interventions of my synthesizers are the background texture that accompany this pleasant sound full of mysticism.

My temples will want to be a series of albums dedicated to this style, slow, minimalist, deep and evocative, ideal for the practices described above, and when I say temples I mean above all nature, where true sacredness is manifested there.

I wish you a pleasant journey inside my temples.

    From Exposé

    Marco Billi aka Jarguna’s latest sonic creation is a single sixty-seven minute sound sculpture titled My Temple, a free flowing and stunningly beautiful piece sourced from koshi wind chimes (and perhaps other other bells and gongs as well, or synthsized from the koshi source) and then heavily studio processed with reverb and synths, with added sampled background textures. The dreamy nature of the piece is intentionally mystical, even spiritual and introspective, which strongly hints at its use for meditative practices or even slumber. For a period in the middle of the piece, the chimes and gongs drift away completely to be overtaken by pure floating ambient synth washes breathing in and out with waves of color and shadows almost like angel choirs in deep space. As the piece begins to conclude, the chimes and bells begin to reappear within the sonic texture, though morphed and processed even further than in their original form at the beginning of the piece, almost beyond recognition as such. One has to recognize that Jarguna’s mastery of meditative soundscapes like My Temple offers a sublime and immersive experience. -Peter Thelen
