Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-yoku, is a term that means “taking in the
forest atmosphere.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and
has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in
Japanese medicine.
“Taking in the forest atmosphere” became the inspiration for A
Hawk and A Hacksaw’s newest album. Their forest bath of choice
is the Valle De Oro National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. This
new album features ten original compositions by Heather Trost and
Jeremy Barnes. The opening track “Alexandria” features Barnes on
the Persian Santur, an ancient hammer struck dulcimer, and Trost’s
string and woodwind melodies. The composition evokes the long
trader’s route between what is now Bulgaria and the wealthy cities of
Istanbul and Alexandria.
The band has always had a bird’s eye view of this part the world—
looking for the connections between places and even eras: a belief
in the power of music to reach across borders and unite.
The band is based on the idea of collecting music and inspiration
through travel. They are not of a place, but their music evokes places
along a route. This is not urban music. It’s rural: songs of the woods
and roads where there are no sidewalks or street lamps to light your
way.
While the bulk of the music heard on this record is played by Barnes
and Trost, they do have some incredible guest performances, namely the
clarinet virtouso Cüneyt Sepetçi, from Istanbul, Hungarian cimbalom
master Unger Balász, and closer to home, Chicago trumpeter Sam
Johnson, Deerhoof’s John Dieterich and Noah Martinez, of the
band Lone Piñon.
