John C. LillyFebruary 6, 2009
Weird ambient electronic album with brief snippets of evolutionary scientist John C. Lilly speaking on his theories and intoning exercises.
I don’t know much about this.
The only people who can be tangentially credited with the concept appear to be engineer Tetsuya Ishikawa and producers Yasuhiko Suga and Tetra Tanizaki with music by P.B.C., Spice Barons and The Heavenly Music Corporation, all of whom I have never heard of.
I just found it at a thrift store and found it a bit odd, especially since I rarely find interesting music at thrift stores anymore.
It’s also definitely out-of-print, so fits my personal download policy.
Update: I initially wrote an unenthusiastic review of this album when I first found years ago it – but have definitely grown rather fond of it on subsequent listens. Note how many times I’ve played bits of it on shows over the years.
