Synopsis

Album Description
Legendary musician/producer Bill Laswell delivers Divination: Sacrifice, a textural, mediative soundtrack that luminates with natural elements. Two of the four collaborations are with Laraaji who has been one of the true pioneers in ambient music, using sound for healing, relaxation and the exploration of higher states of conciousness. Most of the sounds on this recording are generated by hands touching strings, wood and metal; processed natural sounds, must closer to nature than technology.

CD Reviews

4 extended tracks of slowly unfolding ambient sounds
Chris Meyer | 05/02/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Marking yet another development in the musical path of producer Bill Laswell (acclaimed for the recent remix projects Dreams of Freedon: Ambient Translations of Bob Marley in Dub and Panthalassa: The Music of Miles Davis 1969-1974), Sacrifice is one of the first two releases of the new Meta Records, a label dedicated to spiritually oriented music and spoken-word recordings. It comprises four extended tracks of slowly unfolding ambient sounds that range from deep subterranean moans to sparkling night-sky twinkles. The latter, on the 16-minute pieces "Reflection" and "Still," are provided by the chiming electric 36-string zither of ambient pioneer Laraaji, advocate and teacher of "soundhealing" and laughter meditation; the former by Laswell's msterful manipulations of electronics and distinctive bass playing. Some of the aural atmospherics stretch out like sci-fi soundtracks, others are more abstract in their spacious textures, but none limit themselves to soothing New Age stereotypes, and all reward deep listening."
Excellent chilled-out "drivel"!
