Finally re-released, one of their most successful albums, originally on Cold Meat but deleted for many years. Again in digitally re-mastered sound quality and deluxe digipak! One of the most poetic and varied albums by Ataraxia, ‘Saphir’ was inspired by the magical, symbolic and mystic nature of gardens. Gardens of all ages linked to different geographic areas (the hanging gardens of Babylon, the Arabian gardens, the medieval hortus conclusum, the zen gardens and the English romantic gardens) have been the starting point of Ataraxia’s musical research.The harmony governing the elements composing a garden is the same governing the elements composing music and all of this creates beauty.In "Saphir", nature and art are mixed together to contrast an environment and life-style mainly based on what is functional and productive; focus your attention on the most precious gift the human being should never be obliged to renounce to: the freedom to dream and an aesthetic taste for life. Music is rich and nuanced: Classic and flamenco guitars, romantic pianos, pads of atmospheric keyboards, noble sonatas, epic tunes, rich vocal broderies and some eastern and classic percussions by Riccardo Spaggiari, appearing for the very first time in an Ataraxia album.Released mid-October, 2010 on Twilight Records.Track Listing:01 Azar02 Outremer03 Jardin de Lune04 The gentle Sleep05 Rue Bleue06 D’Arc et d’Harpe07 A Green for her Voice08 Blood of Cherries09 Of Asphodel
