In this months issue's 'reader's music reviewed' section there was one that is truly remarkable. Although the praises for this album has already been published, so I'll present my observation.
Mira by Jienat
is released on blu-ray, hence dont assume it to be cheap, but it isnt overtly expensive though, which it should have been.
I assume someone had already posted this kind of post somewhere in the forum. I read the review and checked the video of the making of 'Mira', which I believe must be referred in this thread because Jienat's acumen in recording audio are truly remarkable. there was everything from ethnic world music sounds to dog barks to Bow saw cutter played with a bow (by the way that's not an innovation, I've known few who did that, here is a video
on how to do it yourself). Overall I loved the whole video and the sounds produced with some real innovative skills.
In Hinduism Mira is one of the most ardent lover of Lord Krishna, I did not know what it may imply to in Norwegian language though. Maybe Jienat had some fascination with Omicron Ceti, the giant red star, which appears on the album quite loud. Maybe its mysterious appearance in one of the episode of Star Trek had driven him to find the title (I, for sure, doubted that). But then finally I read (in jienat.com) this note under the song with the same title -- "Mira is a young bitch from Karasjóhka. She was first encountered one day in 2007 when she was a puppy. Her owner, Anders Nils Utsi, was working with his reindeer herd; Mira was hanging out by Route 889. She had not yet fully grasped the concept that dogs should only chase cars, not try to catch them. She survived, quit catching cars, grew up, and now she has her own title track. Imagine that."
And then I understood why that giant red star stirs the curiosity. It truly is Omicron Ceti.
What a massive album. I never trusted plastic money, but now first thing I'll do is to get one in order to buy this album.
