Title: Canaxis 5
"The project name for a one-off collaboration between Cans bass player Holger Czukay and the painter Rolf Dammers. Canaxis 5 (1969) was an early attempt at manipulating ethnic music (World music), in many ways predating the discreet background music of certain ambient Brian Eno albums. The album was made using tape loops from traditional Vietnamese music to create some kind of acoustic sound painting. The result was a strange sound milage. It contained only two tracks: "Boat-Woman-Song" and "Canaxis". Few ordinary instruments were in use, only Holgers bass can be heard occasionally. Nowadays, this album is nothing more than a curiosity, documenting the ambient music in its early childhood. Czukays tape editing skills steadily improved through the years - as proved by the mid-period Can albums and even more so on his solo albums." - Mutantsounds. "One of the earliest and rarest Krautrock albums ever, this was
recorded in 1968 by Holger Czukay of CAN fame, and released
the next year on the tiny Music Factory label in a pressing of
only 500 copies. With just one long track on each side, this
faithful reissue features all the original artwork." - Scheisshouse.
