On 1986's Celestial Realms (originally released
on cassette only), Laraaji conjures his typically vivid
soundworld of shimmering electric zither, while Goldman
inhabits that world with pulsing guitar and droning synthesizer.
Celestial Realms provides a blissful 46-minute ambient
supported by 11 fans who also own “Celestial Realms”
A unique and engaging experience that you can't quite find anywhere else, especially fully sampled.
The steady and harrowing journey into a blank mind represented by decayed versions of pop songs from past generations is something I enjoyed but for certain feared. It's life-changing in a way.
This album can shift from calm to chaotic in seconds while retaining immersion.
Definitely a staple in the collective worlds of noise, drone, dark ambient, and ambient. jkuering
