Guided by nether nectars and dream herbs, oneiric visions and the light of lunar tides, Halo Manash ‘Language of Red Goats’ aims to be a cartography of cavernous elemental realms and regions, sources and springs that run deep and thick with the fluids of life, death and dream. What was seeded at the Thin Veils has been gathered at Harvest time, and is offered to the seeker as a libation and guide into the ever-liminal, shrouded spaces, for dream-vigils and awakenings.
‘Language of Red Goats’ is a complete work in itself, but can also be viewed as the first facet of a tripartite series of works that are part of one holistic creation – three faces of the same being. More akin to a primitive fieldrecording in the realm of oneirotropic exploration, than an actual album, the work consists of one lengthy tripartite soundscape. Utilizing only gongs, bells, metal bowls and wind instruments, as well as flocks of birds, the work is in contrast to earlier more refined works that feature a wide multiplicity of instruments and soundsources. Language of Red Goats is a bare, primitive and sometimes raw aural landscape, and yet nonetheless achieves a rare subliminal intensity and an edge of otherwordly luminosity.
The ‘Language of Red Goats’ box set includings: ‘Language of Red Goats, CD’, an oversized hand-finished cardboard covers, a hand-made booklet, including additional artwork and drawings corresponding to the work and a ‘From the Forest of Red Goats’ insert card. This special edition is limited to 71 copies.
