Dream Enterer (formerly Infinitarian) is the experimental/world music project of indian singer-songwriter Madhav Agarwal. Eastern melodies with indian classical influences come together with western harmony and arrangements to create a new atmosphere and a raw and organic sound.
dear all, i'm so happy and nervous to share a big piece of my heart with you today. over the last 4 years i made this record of 9 songs with a new project 'dream enterer'.
these are love songs (aren't all songs), i suppose you could say i wrote them for my love, which is this formless energy that shatters as soon as i try to shape it into an image.
i don't know where this beautiful energy comes from - it refuses as of yet to explain or reveal itself completely, instead asks me to see through it, see clearly.
it's full of paradox, as i really don't know what to say, i am rendered speechless by love and life.
this record took 4 years. by took i mean really took 4 of my years. we pour our being into, a lot of our life goes into the songs and i thought if the songs talk of a peaceful state perhaps through my practice of this music i will get there. i'm still not there, not completely, but i am definitely moved, transformed. i hope this record serves as a good snapshot of that journey.
i would love if you listen to the music, in a moment of quiet, listen to all of it, really listen. share how you feel. thank you, love you, need you.

DEBUT EP - 'SINKER SAILOR TRAILER'
Dear all, Today I am very happy to share with you my first EP with Infinitarian. Music for me is a spiritual superpower. It shatters my insides and brings me to cruel fruition yet simultaneously provides me solace, a home where I can laugh, scream, cry till my heart is vent and I am light, content like a bird which has finally found another to fly with, a tree to sleep in. The music in this record is a reflection of a part of my life that has now nearly passed onto the next one but it is an accurate picture of that time, of my love and longing, joy and pain. I'm telling you this, only because I wish to show you a window to my world, so you know what to expect if you decide to take a peek inside. The irony is that this creation born albeit in isolation hardly means anything to me unless I have someone to share it with. I am incredibly thankful to my lovely friends who helped me and provided this project with enough love to sustain it. Milan, Soet, Sascha,Felician, Akvile, William, Daniel, Víctor, Micha,Christian and Rengert, thank you thank you thank you, is all I can say. So yes, I hope you all like it. I will be carrying CDs with me wherever I go and play, so if anyone would like to get a physical copy, just ask :) I intend to play a lot in the coming two years. Soon I will record the LP with Infinitarian which will be called 'Anatomie Antique' and an EP with my new Indian folk music project. More news when I have it :) Until next time! Lots of love, Madhav 15th April, 2016
