Welcome to a humble, transcendent, and mostly inadvertent take on cosmic art. This experimental electroacoustic ambient space-rock musical project is a retreat from the realm of popular conformist vibes, rather it takes on its own as a contrast to the ephemeral figments of mainstream thoughts and process, in a consorting sort of way.
AMBIENT MUSIC is an auditory dreamscape; a space in time that can shift and shine from mind to mind and harmonize with long lost chords withheld inside. A ROCK song takes to a theme and enlightens or endarkens us with poeticism and, ideally, with flair.
AMBIENT ROCK does both and neither, so make of it what you will.
There are things here that words can’t express, rather the ambiguous moods and emotions are realized within the layers of the music itself and exposed for a billion different minds to interpret and feign understanding of in their own meaningful ways.
Studio artist Irfan Azam has taken on this budgetless and spare-time curved line of productivity since 2004. The music is completely spontaneous; no earthly plans are drawn and no star maps charted. The playing is humanly off-kilter, the melodies might not catch, a missed beat goes unchecked, “and the stars look down.”

“The album gives you a sense of a landscape, but instead of just marching towards a vast horizon of sprawling sounds, it feels like the instrumentals are burrowing through layers of soil to discover the core of the earth, and the meaning of life itself.”
“full of eclectic stylistic ambition”
“Instead of making instrumental music for silly moments in sports events, Anomalous Leaf delivers soundscapes you’ll remember a decade later, because you have locked the music onto an image in your mind”
