microphones in the trees: ginnungagap

Sunday, December 18, 2005


"For this session Stephen O'Malley enlisted the help of psych/free/folk troubadour Alexander Tucker and fellow traveller Anthony Sylvester.
Wishing to forego the amplifier worship of previous projects, the trio set about using acoustic instruments to create a meditative and different kind of "heavy" musical landscape filled with the drone of traditional Indian layers of wordless voice.
The resulting four compositions are powerful, reflective and extremely beautiful. The inspiration for this session came from the soundtrack work of Popul Vuh for the films of Werner Herzog and Alejandro Jodorowsky's collaborative music for his films from the early 70's along with more modern artists like Ben Chasny's Six Organs Of Admittance and Jack Rose's Pelt."
