Jonathan's Dive - Edgar's Hair
The vinyl double album 'Jonathan's Dive' is a 100-minute concept record based on Richard Bach's novel 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull', the famous fable about the seagull who is banned by his peers for wanting to make flying an art form. A symbol of the universal desire for unlimited freedom.
The film adaption of the book, released in 1974, was famously adorned with a soundtrack by Neil Diamond. More than 40 years later, Dutch band Edgar's Hair (ex-I$I$, ex-Oak members) puts its own spin on it and transforms the story into a much darker and more erratic epic.
An analog musical adventure (filled) with ethnic acoustic sounds and a vibrant voice palette in multiple languages. An exploration into inner bleakness and a "higher plane of existence" that turns into a most magical aural trip.
