Akoustik Timbre Frekuency – Dogon (2003)
These tracks were kreated over the kourse of a few days as an Invokation to water…
Taken from http://www.crystalinks.com/dogon2.html:
The Dogon say their knowledge was given to them by the Nommos, amphibious beings sent to Earth from Sirius for the benefit of mankind. The name comes from a Dogon word meaning 'to make one drink', and the Nommos are also called 'Masters of the Water', the 'Monitors', and the 'Teachers'.
The Dogon tells the legend of the Nommos, awful-looking beings who arrived in a vessel along with fire and thunder. After they arrived here - they put out a reservoir of water onto the Earth then dove into the water.
The Nommos were more fishlike than human, and had to live in water. They were saviors and spiritual guardians: "The Nommo divided his body among men to feed them; that is why it is also said that as the universe "had drunk of his body," the Nommo also made men drink. He gave all his life principles to human beings."
Akoustik Timbre Frekuency – Dreamtime (2003)
Apart from Woodland Retreat, these compositions were created over the space of one week. I awoke and immediately set to work on them from 3am for one hour until 4am. This way I managed to still stay pretty much asleep during the creation of these. I set a deadline for myself to finish them in one week so that I didn’t have chance to get used to the routine. For the most part I don’t remember creating these compositions. At all.
Woodland Retreat was created by Priapus23, Subliminal Minnie and Jon (of Honey Ride Me A Goat). A microphone was placed in a tree and the three of us sat in the surrounding trees to form a triangle with the mic in the middle. We used acoustic ritual instruments including Tibetan horns, Aura Chimes, Tibetan cymbals and my shamanic rattle with percussion sounds created through Jon and I playing a rhythm on the trees with sticks. This was then combined with some chanting vocals.
A booklet was created to compliment this release.
Akoustik Timbre Frekuency – Thee Serpent's Embrace (2003)
