To bring PlantWave’s breakthrough concept to life, Tatcha worked together with veteran partners Syn World to produce a song from the hero active ingredient of its newest formula, Japanese indigo. The timeless botanical has actually long been concerned for its deeply calming and soothing effects on skin, however the teams wondered what it seemed like, and if its music might impact the brain. To discover, Tatcha and the Syn World group took a trip to an indigo farm in the Tokushima prefecture in Japan to tape the noise of the plant and its environment using PlantWave.
Made up over a span of two months, each note in the last “Song of Indigo” composition is an expression of a modification within the plant from minute to minute. When producing the music, the Syn team incorporated relaxing elements such as slower pace (36.46 bpm), mellow timbre (bass clarinet), and smaller sized amplitude (-10 dB) to help listeners de-stress. Samples of instruments and other sonic textures such as bird song and a babbling brook, raise ball game’s soothing effects. Utilizing additional audio products recorded in Shikoku and Akita Shirakami Sanchi, Syn World added pink noise: frequencies found in nature sounds like rain, wind, or leaves rustling, to create a sense of calm. Tatcha, PlantWave and Syn World also selected secrets, scales, and paces that are supposed to enhance the state of relaxation.
Tatcha and Syn World will continue to develop a plant-based soundscape library based upon the primary botanical ingredients in each of Tatcha’s skin care collections. Produced by Tatcha with leading scientists, research study laboratories, and universities in addition to reputable spiritual and wellness leaders, crucial collections will come with a matching curation of noise (Syn World soundscapes), sight, feel, scent, and taste to bring the skin and mind into consistency. These rituals and soundscapes will continue to introduce over the next 24 months.
