Lamp Of The Universe - Heru
Over an hour of uninterrupted sonic bliss, constructed in Hamilton, New Zealand, though the places it describes and evokes along the way are not on any known maps. Indian drone, ethereal wordless spirit vocals, sighing sitars brush the surface of the lake, the water is deep and wide but so clear you can see to the bottom hundreds of feet below. Great distance and moody majesty; at around the fifth track it sounds like Popol Vuh on some sort of godlike visionary sedatives. One man sonic universe or lamp thereof Craig Williamson employs: electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, tablas, choir-like layers of voice, sitar, bowed guitar & sitar, tamboura, tapes, rain pipe, effects, and keyboards to weave the single piece that is Heru. Though it is discreetly divided into seven tracks (Heru parts 1-7) , they all flow into one another so as not to interupt the dream or the dreamer. Orginally released on a limited CDR by Barlfire recordings, now availible once again on factory pressed CD!!!
