In 1989, Dr. Jeffrey D. Thompson, D.C., B.F.A. was approached by representatives working with NASA and JPL to explore a series of powerful recordings which the Voyager I & II Spacecraft had sent back from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. These recordings seemed to be having a profound effect on the scientists and researchers who were exposed to them. Dr. Thompson was approached as an expert in the field of sound and healing, and especially in his work with "Primordial Sounds.” Primordial sounds are human body sounds and nature sounds formatted in special ways to cause a deep response in the subconscious mind. These are extremely useful in all levels of healing.
This live release was captured on the occasion of their celebrating 10 years of live Oresund Space Collective concerts. The first concert was at their local favorite club, Dragens Hule (RIP) in Feb 2005. Since that time the collective grew greatly from the roots of Mantric Muse and Bland Bladen to a multi-international collective of like minded musicians. The amazing venue, Loppen in Christiania was the site of this amazing night, which featured 3 sets of music with three completely different line up of musicians. Dr Space played in all three sets but all the rest of the musicians switched out for each set.
The Drummer discovered 4 further studio longtracks from the original formation of 2004 which have not been released yet! Psychedelic hardrock Hammond tracks, which celebrate the late 60's and were recorded during the time when the album 'Kraut Lok' was recorded. The title track lives through Tom Kunkel's dominating heavy original 70's Hammond organ. Included is the track 'Second sight part II, whose first part was already released on the album 'Kraut-Lok'. The 8 minute track 'Schwachbach' is a homage to JS Bach. Furthermore the CD contains 2 further archive tracks with the new formation which shows Winnie-Rimbach Sator on Keyboards. And a monster version of 'Mountain' with a very experimental psychedelic middle part…
This album was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden on Dec 4-6th, 2015. This session was less improvised but recorded in several improvised layers with a few special guests joining in as well. The music is much more synthesizer based with KG playing amazing 70s inspired synths and organ, as well as bass, guitar, and sitar. Dr Space creating spacey sounds and drones, while Love performed a spoken word, and providing all the drum and percussion parts. The addition of Violin and Santoor really took the two Indian inspired pieces (Khan Paan, Øscilations in D-Minor) to another level. A fantastic instrumental, Kraut inspired ethnic musical journey!
