Scenic shores, endless mountain ranges and everything in between. "Scenic World" by multi-instrumentalist Daniel Elias Brenner satisfies your yearning of travel to exotic locations. His cinematic compositions paint vivid soundscapes linking tradition and modernism. Brenner's synthesizers add a contemporary feeling to indigenous instruments such as Taiko-drums, Erhu-fiddles and Dizi- and Duduk-flutes. One of the highlights is „Golden Rays Of The Sun“ with a vocal performance in the Indian language Kannada. The composer entered uncharted waters while dealing with Asian genres during the production of "Scenic World". The result is an audio-visual experience that combines romanticism and a craving for adventures. "Scenic World" features Varijashree Venugopal (vocals), Sandro Friedrich (Flute), Eliot Tordo (Erhu), Büdi Siebert (bamboo flute).
