Further into the Acre we travel, with volume three of Verdant Acre arriving right on time in April. A vibrant Spring season filled with lapping streams, gentle sunshowers, the soft breath of green leaves and fields of blooming flowers. This third section of Verdant Acre is a stark contrast to the first two - where they were covered in moss, shade and black soils, this is a very warm and comfortable place, bright with yellow sunshine, inviting, fragrant. Sweeping chords of archaic wooden instruments bend down into the colorful tangles and shoot back up into the clouds. Percussions as simple as water burbling over rocks stir amongst the crackling-vinyl birdsong. Subtle threads of dissonance phase in and out of the pastoral harmonies, a reminder of the asymmetry and wild untamed overgrowths of nature undisturbed.
