DAVID TOOP + PAUL BURWELL

Never released before recordings from Logos Foundation live sessions in Brussels on May 7, 1977. 'We were both fascinated by phenomena like diffraction, propulsion, resonance, projection, masking and heterodyning, and by shamanism, the symbolically grounded agency of shamanic drums, animal-becoming and noisy costume, the shaman's capacity to enliven quotidian space with the commotion of discarnate audible entities from the spirit world.' Available as limited LP black vinyl.

DAVID TOOP YANOMAMI SHAMANISM 2CD/LP

Recordings from 1978 by David Toop of Yanomami ritual songs, shamanistic ceremonies and rainforest sounds. The voices of spirits and animal familiars, ventriloquial illusions of sound in dark spaces, secret spirit languages, the clap of thunder that links shamanic trance with the sleep language of Finnegans Wake... Out of these passages of the everyday, intensity flares like flames caught by a gust of wind. Skin burns or oozes blood, the wind blows up havoc as the spirits move about.
David Toop's field recordings of Yanomami rituals present a multidimensional membrane of vibrating flesh (The Wire).

MICHEL REDOLFI, EARLY ELECTRONIC IN THE CALIFORNIA DESERT

In 1987, Michel Redolfi hit the California Desert road during the Fall, to catch those hypothetical poly-sensorial desert tones. He visited the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, Palm Canyon and came back with an extraordinary album of early electronic music, sparse and bright to express the crude light and the divine silences.
