“Ascension is the passage from one plane of thought and existence to another, through deliberations of love, loss and freedom. The album, which was composed in the remote valleys of Wales solely by Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett offers ruminations’ of solitude in the isolation of nature. Each song is a meditation laid to tape, forming an album of natural order of thought and feeling, to take us to great heights.”
Samana is a journey of internal and external exploration. Their music is forged with its own distinct weight and significance, born from the interpretation of dreams, the study of ancient rituals, the philosophies of love, loss and death, and the quintessence of interior discovery that results from personal experience. The process by which all works are recorded is of great importance to Samana, who compose their art in their analogue recording studio and darkroom in the remote mountains of Wales.
