Boomkat Product Review:
First vinyl edition of a rare, 33 years old, new age meditation tape by Brian Eno-collaborator Laraaji and sound therapist Jonathan Goldman a.k.a. Lyghte
Apparently discovered on cassette in a thrift store, ’Celestial Realms’ now reappears via new label, Morning Trip, to unveil a magickally-enhanced session of zither, bells, synth and guitar recorded in the basement of Lyghte’s house in Lexington, Massachusetts, in 1984.
They simply let the tape run an captured what happened, resulting the 22 minutes of glittery cascades, pan-piped emotions and lush pads in ‘Equinox’, and a further 23 minutes of star-searching astral projection with the more minimal, calmer scope of ‘Celestial Realms’.
