‘Caickuwi Cauwas Walkeus’, a work recorded in early September 2008 is finally re-released through Aural Hypnox’s Stellar Mansion series. Stellar Mansion is our new re-release series, presenting past Helixes transmissions, sent back from distant stars, in newly designed packaging. ‘Caickuwi Cauwas Walkeus’ was previously available during Halo Manash tour in France (Jan. 2009), in an edition of only 29 copies.
The album presents contemplative forest music in its purest form – a return of lost, primeval forest hymns. Buried deep in sound and soil, primal Mana has been unearthed and unleashed from the remote frosty hummocks and calm fells all over boreal forests. The circling polar flares in the night sky and a variety of forgotten calls guide the indefatigable explorer inwards, towards the saffron moon and self-devouring windlestraw pyres.
The album consists of five tracks utilizing only acoustic instrumentation, which for the most part have been recorded live in the Katajan Kaiku studio with no overdubs. Total running time: 43:56.
Handcrafted wooden box set of 49 copies includes the regular CD edition, 8 unique photo prints and a silk-screen printed (21 x 70 cm) wall canvas.
