______________________________

The album, which arouses the curiosity, not only through the music?! Something like this happens rarely. Sometimes a cover intrigues us, sometimes the tracks’ titles, sometimes a controversial artist. This time, we are intrigued by something else, because CLOSE – UP – THE HEART OF BIODIVERSITY is not only the sublime music, CLOSE – UP is a deep immersion in the previously unknown magical underwater world of Raja Ampat archipelago in Indonesia. Five tracks having ‘oceanic’ titles, and that is because this EP is the soundtrack for a documentary film showing in the macro version the ‘residents’ of this place on Earth, which is one of the most filmed areas. This time the oceanic world is imbued with the wonderful, peaceful and soothing sounds.

Starting from the first track, ending with the last, the whole was kept in the refined and harmonious atmosphere, allowing to immerse yourself in every sound, and even for a moment to become a part of the presented underwater, almost magical world. Taruna, who is Jurgen Eppinger in cooperation with Jo Christl created the majestic, relaxing EP,great for swinging lazily in a hammock next to the ocean’s shore.

The downbeat and ambient CLOSE – UP has only one minus – five not very long tracks is too little, because when we get totally relaxed, we feel that the climax comes, unfortunately we have to emerge from our underwater world. Well, we can always drown in it again…
