MEASURE OF MYSTERY" by DANIEL HIGGS (Cassette Tape + Mp3)
– ECHOMANCY TAPE VOL.
Measure of Mystery" was recorded (by Fletcher Tucker of
Bird By Snow & Yurt)
on cassette tape in Big Sur, California in the late night hours
when the 29th of October was gradually becoming the 30th (2011).
Song flowed forth from Source in a circular redwood room perched
just above a waterfall, which itself flows steadily toward its
own source (the Pacific Ocean). You may observe the sounds of
both ocean and river on these recordings...and a closer listen
may also reward you with the sounds of starlight, mycelium growth,
molecular revolution, and an untold number of cosmic musics.
tape is a 45 minute magnetic fossilization of
Daniel Higgs' energy field. It is divided between
three tracks of epic proportion: a revelational instrumental banjo
improvisation, an entheogenic song performed on banjo and larynx,
and an ecstatic mythopoetic recitation. Fans of Daniel's previous
albums are surely aware that an exceptional recording of "Say
God" already exists, this new incarnation however is nearly
twice as long with over 100 verses! Truly an awesome
artifact, offered to you in the hope that it will inspire
by Fumie Ishii. This volume of Echomancy is represented
by the symbol for the planet Mercury.
Gnome Life will release some vinyl of new work by Daniel Higgs
later in 2013, check back in with us.
