With Karuna, Drake, Jones and Rudolph bring their unique and evolved rhythm and sonic languages to the fore, reaching to inspire any audience though spirited dialogue. The name Karuna reflects their ongoing research into the connection of the inner life to musical expression and speaks to the idea of creative action as a gesture of compassion. What makes Karuna's music magic is the special history and decades of shared experiences among the musicians. In 1997, these three artists started to perform and record together in the Moving Pictures ensemble, and it was immediately clear that there was a special chemistry at play. Together they have researched into the science and mysticism of sound, as well as the cosmologies which are expressed through music making around the world. Through years of performing together they have developed a true alchemy and a unique sonic language. Understanding one other in both the intellectual and intuitive creative realms means that they have the freedom create spontaneously within their shared space. As Adam explains: "The idea behind making this recording was simple: to listen, be present and, through the voices of our instruments, share our imagination, feelings and ideas."
