Lajamanu (AMBIENT SOUND AND SONG)
"Lajamanu" produced by Joe Hastings. A record entitled "Ambient Sound and Song" by a three piece ensemble named "Lajamanu". (2004)
From minimalist to all encompassing waves of frequencies-tension and release comes, "Lajamanu" an ambient escapade of a didgeridoo, percussion and guiatr texture. This album features Shivaji (didgeridoo), Zach Michels (percussion) and Joe Hastings (guitar). Recorded live in the studio by Mike Wisti at Albatross studios in Minneapolis. For a live trio, this album sounds like a school of blue whales rumbling through the ocean floor. Track one starts out with a tease flow, "Lajamanu" into a myriad of liquid rumbles known as "Wamambool" full streams of consciousness with overt expression.
This recording is an approach in progression, instrumentation, experimentation and healing vibrations. All songs on this disc were not pre-cognitioned, meaning that there was no communique between the players about anything relating to the music prior to the recording, the music is completely improvised. This is a classic album for you space-out-didgeridoo-electric guitar-world-drum-kind of humans! Is it space people, rockers, or is it the Lajamanu (ambient sound and song)? 7 Tracks Total run time 48:14
