LOGICAL DRIFT

Logical Drift In 2011, veteran musician, writer, composer and producer John Matarazzo partnered with the legendary producer and sound engineer Logan Strand to form LOGICAL DRIFT, a new musical project with a whole lot of history. Let’s delve:

Matarazzo began his music career working as a guitarist with Ike & Tina Turner, and later for Sly Stone, which opened up the doors for Matarazzo to support such musical groups as Sly and The Family Stone and Weather Report as an opening act on tour.

Matarazzo soon found himself accepting studio session work for artists like Bob Dylan, Herbie Hancock and Tito Puente. Eventually, he began dabbling in music production and engineering.

Growing into a producer, Matarazzo was fortunate to have recorded reggae/dub stars Sly & Robbie, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and the Heptones, as well as the great and late Ravi Shankar and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

After 30 years of working on major recordings and performing with popular acts, Matarazzo began focusing on spiritual projects. Matarazzo was drawn to immerse himself in the origins of the music of the world. He journeyed to Bali, Indonesia, Sumatra, Tibet, North Africa, Morocco, Mali and Thailand, recording the native sounds along the way.

In 2010, Matarazzo brought engineering friend, Logan Strand on board. In 2011 they launched the Logical Drift project. The project focused on ancient spiritual systems, psycho-acoustics and aural imaging that heighten the listeners’ sense of wellness and tranquility.

Pioneering some of the early recordings of Ambient and Electronic music (John Zorn, Jah Wobble, Mick Harris and Buckethead), his success in this genre attracted established world and jazz artists (Ravi Shankar, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Herbie Hancock, Lee “Scratch” Perry, The Gamelan Of Bali, Lata Mangeshcar, The Monks Of Notre Dame, and Buddhist Monks of Maitri Vihar Monastery Tibet), opening the doors to expanded work on World and New Age projects.

While continuing on his spiritual path, Matarazzo took interest in developing psychological compositions using electronic music elements instituted by Karl Heinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez. He experimented with their concepts and adapted them to create psychological dreamscapes and aural environments that evoke spiritual responses from the listener.

Synthesizing sounds in acoustic laboratories, Matarazzo developed a palette of unique and emotionally resonant sounds from simple sine wave generators, overlaying harmonic spectrums and resonating filters. The result are evocative and sensual aural landscapes and alternative worlds that stimulate the chakra portals, carrying listeners on a journey toward greater awareness and aliveness.

Combining his knowledge of ancient spiritual systems, psycho-acoustics and aural imaging, Matarazzo creates soundscapes that heighten the listeners’ sense of wellness and tranquility.

Matarazzo’s aim is to create music that will provide an important map for our wholeness and transformation, both personally and globally.

Under the Logical Drift project, five albums were released which have gained the support of Sirius XM Radio, Pandora, PBS, NPR, Music Choice and many other media companies worldwide.

ZEN DEN APPzen den app:
Zen Den contains 15, 30, 45 and 60 minute sessions for you to relax, meditate and practice yoga to. The app also provides music videos for meditation, inspirational quotes, conscious-driven photos and much more.

Zen Den has been created by Logical Drift, who produces a series of record releases specifically composed around a distinct ancient cultural spiritual system, manifesting musical healing compositions that produce enlightenment, relaxation and tranquility. Using and combining electronic and acoustic instruments, Logical Drift searches the concealed sense and explores the secret places between sound and sensuality, sense and sensation. Taking a sound approach to the physical pleasure stimulated and incited by music, Logical Drift uses sources both obscure and commonplace to bring the listener to evocative mythic peaks and tranquil mystic valleys of aural pleasure; thus awakening the soul.
