Action In Inaction represents mankind's journey through life and rebirth. The music is a mix of body moving grooves and cerebral compositions. Blending ancient and modern instruments to create a unique sound that reaches into our primal self.
The concept of Action In Inaction is taken from the Bhagavad-gita which translates as "One Who Sees inaction in action, and action in inaction, is intelligent among society, and is in the transcendental position, although engaged in all sort of activities". This concept is the basis for how Telesma approaches music, sometimes we create the music, sometimes we sit back and the music comes to us.
The music on this album ranges from danceable grooves and psychedelic sounds, to heavier rock riffs, to mantra chants and throat singing. Using ancient instruments like the didgeridoo and kubing (bamboo mouth harp) to give a trance like pulse and combining it with modern rock and electronica instruments. Some of the lyrics are Sanskrit mantra chants, which are translated in the physical album's liner notes.
The layout of the songs outline mankind's journey through life, from creation, to becoming aware of the self, being caught up in the self before breaking free and seeking enlightenment, then finally reaching the end of this lifetime and beginning the cycle again.
