Nonviolenze’s ‘Ghosts of War’ Album is a Conscious Musical Meditation for Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull Fans
Nonviolenze is the solo musical moniker of Houston, TX singer songwriter Shri Baratan, whose purposeful signature sound takes influence from Pink Floyd, John McLaughlin, Jethro Tull, Yes, Al Jarreau, Joni Mitchell, and eastern classical music.
Today his new music video for “Mirror” is released. Big Takeover premiered the video, adding “Baratan sings of the foibles of humans, “anger, hatred jealousy, lust, and greed”, and cautions us to look in the mirror and make sure we’re not the ones embodying these detrimental qualities.”
“Mirror” is taken from Nonviolenze’s ambitious debut album “Ghosts of War”, released on Oct 16.
About “Mirror” (from the artist):
The Cosmos is a Mirror that reflects the body (gross matter), mind (thought vibrations) and feelings (radiation). You cannot hide from the Cosmic Mirror for it knows your innermost feelings. Everything you perceive is a reflection of you. That which you exhibit ricochets right back to you. Give love and get love. Display fear and it returns as vampires. The Mirror continuously assorts the field of feelings bringing like-characters together. The happy hang out with the happy. The Angry gather and resent together. What a wonder this Cosmic Mirror. What’s inside’s, Outside.
