Four thematically connected musical works utilising a spider bridge resonator guitar, nylgut strung open back banjo, porcelain slide on a nylon string guitar, amplified electric cello, single string cigar box fiddle, detuned acoustic bass, 22 inch frame drum, assorted 'forest' sticks, and a large seed husk shaker.

Drone and ambient FX created with electric cello and a recording of my vacuum cleaner 'sound designed' into a virtual instrument.

All instruments are 'first take' recordings, in an attempt to capture a rawness to the music that's sometimes lacking in computer based multitrack recording.

"Shamanism is a path of knowledge, not of faith, and that knowledge cannot come from me or anyone else in this reality. To acquire that knowledge, including the knowledge of the reality of the spirits, it is necessary to step through the shaman's doorway and acquire empirical evidence." ~ Michael Harner
