City Of Light
Including pineal sound projection by Coils John Balance and Peter Christopherson, Laswells 1997 spoken word/ambient/fourth world release bubbles back into consciousness.
Also featuring ambient spirit Tetsu Inoue, City Of Light revolves around Lori Carsons spoken word text about Banaras;
a city older than history, tradition, way beyond legends. It is Shiva's land, founded at the dawn of creation. It is India's oldest and most fabled city. The Hindus call it Kashi, the luminous... The City of Light. Coils contribution is a highlight, supplying 13 mystic backdrop to Kála, and Laswells bookending works Nothing and Above The Earth mesh tabla and industrial atmospheres to proper late 90s cyber-conscious appeal - you know the stuff; chill out rooms and incense, energy vampires describing their 13th trip to Goa - all very quaintly earnest and fusioneering.
