Ragamatic - aka Weilheim's Reiner Heidorn - drops a sublime début long player of evocative sitar ragas and experimental electronics. Auditus is a daring and highly poised eight-track album merging two quite different aesthetics. With a rich, deep and intricate sound, Heidorn's highly accomplished sitar playing - focusing on North Indian ragas - is perfectly complimented by the understated, stripped back electronica; a unique combination which makes this release so beguiling and rewarding to listen to. Although filled with elements both traditional and of the modern industrial world, there is no tension in the dialectic. Instead, Auditus conjures an atmosphere of wonder, depth and humility.
