about

The man responsible for the Buddha Machine steps forth with a meditative solo album exploring the space between ambient and neo-classical music.

Virant has lived in China since the 1980s and in 1999 founded Beijing's pioneering electronic band, FM3.

"Fistful Of Buddha" draws upon this experience to meld Eastern and Western instrumentation with a contemplative sophistication.

Slow moving repetition and incremental evolution is key to his sound here, opening expansive spaces where where strings and subtly dynamic electronics move with Zen-like mood and pace.
