Pause’ is the Third single from John Monkman’s new sonic initiative ‘Asriel’.
The release presents a moment of calm, giving the listener a new space to help focus their attention. Warm, uplifting strings wander in and out of the soundscapes until the final resolve that lands on a warm bed of modulating tones.
“Just as Tibetan monks change the shape of the resonant cavity of the mouth to create the rich overtones you hear in their throat singing practice, I’ve used filters to capture these enchanting harmonics. There is a hypnotic and engaging quality to this kind of sound, it's something I’ve always been drawn to and understand why they are used to help focus the mind during meditation”. - John Monkman
The full album will be released on August 28th and the Third single ‘Pause’ is out now.
