Shiggajon are a Danish music collective that revolves around key players Nikolai Brix Vartenberg and Mikkel Reher-Langberg. 'Fire snge i gul og rod' sounds like an old spiritual recording by some ancient tribe or culture and seems to possess none of the aspects you'd expect from a modern popular music recording. Saying that it does share a lot in common with many modern avant garde composers and artists such as Derek Bailey, Sunburned Hand Of The Man, Incredible String Band and Sun Ra. I guess the idea is to transcend certain musical and cultural boundaries in an attempt to break free from traditionalism and embrace ancient forms of musical communication?? At least that's the impression I get from the press release. Spirituality and mysticism aside, this is a pretty sweet semi-improv record that makes great use of bows, harps, flutes, treated vocal chants and primitive percussive elements. Very droney and spaced out but intense and unforgiving at the same time. Nice.
