Is it music?
Is it poetry? Is it art? From one of the pioneers of psychedelic
music and audio-collage comes an album that re-defines the nature
of music, poetry and sound-art. Firmly anchored in the present,
this album reaches into the future. Daevid Allen has always been
a trail-blazer in the music and poetry worlds, be it through his
bands Gong and University of Errors, through earlier projects
such as with Soft Machine, collaborations with William S. Burroughs
and Terry Riley. This album builds on his entire oeuvre and
climbs even further. From pure spoken-word, through lush ballads
to heavy industrial, this album pushes the boundaries of convention
in ways few have.
