"When I step into the hothouses and see the plants from exotic lands, it seems to be that I am in a dream." (H.Rousseau)

 
 
 

Leitmotif of this collection is that of exoticism. From plants, animals, and natural phenomena, the five themes aim to channel the forces of nature.

In music, exoticism is a genre in which the melodies, rhythm and instrumentation are designed to evoke the atmosphere of far-off lands and cultures. Likewise, REI±NE summons foreign themes inspired by the founder's most recent travels and constant efforts t disrupt her comfort zone. This contributed to the creation of five patterns: Pink Elephantastic, Pineapple Express, Tropical Storm, Feather Dance and She's My Tiger.
