(Boomkat.com product review) Laurent Jeanneau aka KINK GONG takes us to the Buddhist holy land of Tibet, or “the roof of the world” with a particularly mesmerising new episode of his augmented sonic travelogues issued by the excellent Akuphone, rather than his usual home of Discrepant. If you’ve never heard any Kink Gong records, this is a really great place to get acquainted with what he does; basically taking dozens of hours of location recordings made during extensive travels around Asia, and then post-processing them into stunning collages which retain the character of the source material, yet radically re-compose it as something else entirely, giving a richly impressionistic feel for whatever region he’s focussing on. In that sense, Tibetan Buddhism Trip fully live up to the promise of its title, implying a psychedelic treatise on the remote Himalayan region which comes captivatingly alive thru layers of mind-bending chants, slow thumping percussion and chiming bells in the 1st half, then with massed polyrhythmic clangour of traditional drums, processed horns and swarming street noise in the 2nd half. We urge you to give this one a whirl. It’s far cheaper than a return trip to Lhasa, and almost as intoxicating as we’d imagine it to be! https://boomkat.com/products/tibetan-buddhism-trip https://akuphone.com/catalog/xlB4b2J#content AKU1006 : Kink Gong : Tibetan Buddhism Trip (LP/CD/DL)

Forthcoming on Akuphone : The Gamelan Of The Walking Warriors : Gamelan Beleganjur and the Music of the Ngaben Funerary Ritual in Bali AKU1007 (CD/LP/DI) 9 tracks Physical release date : Sept. 15th, 2017 Pre order here : https://akuphone.com/catalog/2bzFVghZ#content A fascinating immersion in the heart of a funeral ceremony live recorded in Bali, where gongs, cymbals, and drums give rhythm to the bewitching atmosphere of this mortuary procession. The international audience’s interest into Balinese music and its gamelan orchestras dates back to the edition of large ethnographic series in the 1950s, 60s and 70s which largely encouraged the discovery of this music beyond Indonesia’s borders. Taking advantage of a more advanced technology compared to the vinyl golden era, the present field recordings produced in 2011 render at the closest the power of gamelans. They are presented here in two forms. The first one offers a display of Beleganjur music out of the ritual context, which can be differentiated by a more melodic form and a more dramatic and hypnotic aspect of the compositions. The second one presents the Beleganjur style in the ceremonial context of the Ngaben funerary rite in the village of Peliatan. The utmost vitality of these orchestras springs out throughout the different stages of these funerals, and the sound environment surrounding the musicians immerse the listener in the very heart of the procession following the corpse. With The Gamelan of The Walking Warriors, Akuphone carries on its exploration of ritual and ceremonial music with those materials of rare intensity. These recordings were collected by Vincenzo Della Ratta, PhD in Ethnomusicology from the Sapienza University (Rome). As a specialist of the gongs music from the Austronesian cultures of Southeast Asia, Della Ratta is the author of numerous articles on the subject. His field researches have already been edited as a vinyl entitled Kwangkay: Funerary Music Of The Dayak Benuaq Of Borneo (Sublime Frequencies, 2016). Recorded in Bali by Vincenzo Della Ratta, 2011. Produced by Akuphone, 2017.

New KINK GONG is now out! Tibetan Buddhism Trip (CD/LP/DI) https://akuphone.com/catalog/xlB4b2J#content Psalmody, small bells, big cymbals, gongs and drums - this puzzling collage of Tibetan Buddhist rites recordings is hypnotizing. It opens the way to the state of trance. The slight electronic arrangement still reminds that reality is not so far. The two twenty-minute tracks instantly convey an unknown and fascinating universe. Mantra chanting accelerates, horns become more insistent and a mystical atmosphere arises. With Tibetan Buddhism Trip, Akuphone starts exploring ritual and ceremonial music, here with a subtle mix of field recordings and electronic handlings. Over the years King Gong aka Laurent Jeanneau specialized in the recording of ethnic minorities, particularly from South East Asia. He has recorded over 160 albums and his work is now largely well-known around the globe. Such an impressive collection enables him to manipulate, assemble and reconstruct his field recordings in order to create new sound landscapes. Recorded in Tibet and Yunnan (China) between 2006 and 2013. Recomposed in Berlin in 2016. Vinyl comes with printed innersleeve and download card including live performance in Bristol and unseen pictures.
