Edward Larry Gordon (aka Laaraji) I know through his contribution to Brian Eno's Ambient series but that's as far as my knowledge goes. I'm about to get a fair bit more acquainted though 'cos I'm WELL gonna buy one of these little fellas. What we've got is two side-long tracks showcasing his skill at manipulating the zither with various objects and effects to produce rich, beautiful sounds primarily for the purposes of deep meditation but equally suited for casual listening or to accompany the ingestion of strong psychedelics. Although it could definitely be compared with some of what was coming out of Germany in the 70s with its kosmischisation of Eastern modes, more than anything it's making me think of the minimalist composers and their fascination with phasing. It's almost a lighter, more dreamlike take on the ever-shifting soundworlds of La Monte Young's The Well-Tuned Piano or Charlemagne Palestine's equally incredible Strumming Music. A sublime stunner that gets seven thumbs up from me.. Although that might be the toad I just licked kicking in.
