Boomkat product review for:

barn owl & the infinite strings ensemble - The Headlands

**Edition of 500** Deeply spiritual and complexly emotive collaboration between Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras' Barn Owl and Ellen Fullman with accompaniment from Theresa Wong and The Norman Conquest. Recorded in the pastoral setting of the Headlands Center For The Arts, Sausalito, CA this LP features four "eternal ragas for the infinite now", a dense and arrestingly affective drone mass created by Fullman's Long Stringed Instrument - a system of dozens of 50 foot wires tuned in Just Intonation and 'bowed' with rosin coated fingers - plus Wong's cello and gongs, dulcimer, vocals and bells played by Barn Owl. Their intensely reflective wall of sound may not be for the casual listener, but those with a head for such things will surely not be disappointed. Very highly recommended.
