This record is an extension of a foray into trance ritual music. It's structured as a companion for film, meditation, vision seeking & sound rest.
It's by nature a nature worship record, combing acoustic percussive improvisation, sensory foley, vocalized staccatos, and a specific brew of physical/metaphysical sound relations....mind hush/thought flush/spirit rush/sun rise.
Inspired by an initiation ceremony of the Bwiti/Fang people of Gabon. This collection relays a fragmented branch of timings of this ceremony. Plus proposes alter paths for the sacred (Mougongo) instrument.
Recoded + Restructured + Reflected as a time capsule.
With fullest respect/blessings to breeze the Bwiti understandings through current climate.
