Artist: ARICA
Title: Music In The Nine Rings
Format: LP
Label: Poodle
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
Recorded in NYC in 1972 and remastered from tape transfer. Silkscreened tip-on jackets. "Arica was the music branch of the Arica Institute, whose founder famously collaborated with Alejandro Jodorowsky and convinced him to indoctrinate his entire crew in the Institutes cultish new age teachings before filming The Holy Mountain. Piano, synth, hypnotic percussion and plenty of tape delay - Music in the Nine Rings is an immersive psychedelic new age masterpiece - think Agitation Free, Limbus 4, Deuter-D. This recording almost certainly includes some of the same uncredited musicians that played on Woo Soo/Audition in 1972 and Heaven in 1973, so its no surprise theres a jazz sensibility in the overall structure and the playing. This record is eminently listenable but its unhurried improvisation has more to do with a subtle manipulation of musical tension than the relaxation promises of 80s new age. As the history of new age music is slowly created by people that werent there, Music in the Nine Rings will be a celebrated example of when the genre coalesced and a way of thinking musically showed its potential." - Poodle.
