NEW ALBUM: Laurie Anderson "songs from the Bardo"
#1

Spotify listen:

im lost as to what to write here other than traditional instruments, chants, spoken word, meditation...
Amazon's description is better than mine so here it is:

'Songs from the Bardo' begins with a bell ringing out once, twice, three times, as a ritualistic chant emerges from the dense silence. The collaborative composition by avant-garde icon Laurie Anderson, Tibetan multi-instrumentalist Tenzin Choegyal, and composer and activist Jesse Paris Smith is a guided journey through the visionary text of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, unfolding in an 80-minute ebb and flow of sound and words. Songs from the Bardo is a transporting experience, meant to draw the listener into the present moment and provide a framework for inner exploration. Anderson, Choegyal, and Smith fuse modern compositional techniques with the mystique of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy to make these visionary traditions more accessible to a new generation of listeners and to reveal the ancient wisdoms contained within. 

'different' is an understatement for us mere mortals (MH and myself), Ruby and Jerome might appreciate and understand it.

^Started this one too but had to abandon it due to time restraints. I think it will require some patience. Smile Also requires that you don't mind the sound of Laurie Anderson's voice. I'm interested in The Tibetan Book of the Dead so want to give it another try - just needs to be the right time, I think!

Hate to tell you when it will be the right time but - - - - - - -
I attended a Laurie Anderson concert only to have just Ms LA backed by no more than recordings. Came over as totally dead that did unlike all her early LP’s in my collection which I still enjoy.
Not sure I’m happy with the new enlightened Ms LA though.
