I don’t know what Perennial Wisdom is but found out by reading the Soundcloud page for the song by Art Tawanghar. The definition is a little too long to post here but I encourage you to read about it which gives the song more meaning when you listen.
“Perennial Wisdom In 432Hz ft. Reza Kashi on Persian Tar and Oud” is the actual name of the song. Kashi’s instrumental work is at the center of that song. That being said the track is by Art Tawanghar so I was expecting a lot more elements and that’s what I got.
This is almost like a collage of sounds. I would encourage you to listen to it on a hi-fi sound system or a good pair of headphones. If you are listening on a laptop or through a phone you will be missing so much.
The song starts with a couple piano chords which morph with a filter. There are layers of pads some of which glide effortlessly between notes and become something else. For brief moments there are vocal chants that you might actually miss if you aren’t paying attention. The percussive elements come in which seem to blend organic and electronic elements. Take for instance the hi-hat which sounds like it could be on grid but when combined with the Tar and Oud creates a seamless symbiotic relationship.
As the song hits the halfway point the energy starts to increase and Kashi really starts to let go. I really thought there was going to be crescendo. Tawanghar saves the best for last with the last minute of the song. The song becomes a thematic and cinematic rise with the stereo field growing wider as more elements are placed in the mix. There are disparate elements but when combined create some very unique textures.
“Perennial Wisdom In 432Hz ft. Reza Kashi on Persian Tar and Oud” is a four-minute track that is lush, dynamic and full of vibrant colors. Fans of Tawanghar should be very happy with the track and if this is your first time hearing of him this is a great place to start.
