Ambient music producer J Mundok found himself on a musical interpretation journey in late 2015 after purchasing a triptych art installation to hang in his recording studio. The installation, “Plitvice Botany 2,4, & 3” by Washington DC-based photographer David Bellard, is a series of three unique photo/silkscreen pieces that use layers of geometric designs combined with photos and super 8 film shot in Croatia at the stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park.
Bellard describes the pieces as “a commentary on spatial aesthetics, the geometry of nature, the mechanical biology of time, and our human need to quantify it through some kind of metrics.”
Inspired by the aesthetics of the series, musician J Mundok composed and recorded Plitvice Botany, a three-song ambient EP based on the three pieces in the installation. Analog and digital instrumentation is layered with ritual geometric loops, and the whispering grass of field recordings. Plitvice Botany evokes the mysterious nature of the ancient Croatian forest for those that take the journey.
