More Info

"This historic release presents the first recordings of the early music of Peter Garland, one of the most personal voices in the second generation of West Coast minimalists. Drawing inspiration from Native American and Mexican ritual music, Peter creates beautiful and lyrical sonic portraits. This long out-of-print masterpiece, considered by many to be Peter's greatest recording, was originally released in 1989 on WhatNext? as Border Music and is supplemented here by rare live recordings from the same period. Featuring new expanded notes by the composer and rare photos from the period, this is the definitive document of an American experimental classic." [label info]


"An excellent compilation of small compositions which are evoking peace and attention in the listeners mind. Sometimes very similar to the later Musci/Venosta: "A Noise A Sound", ReR, 1992 but with much more native american influences. The collection works also as a concept album. Memorizing are the minimal flute melodies, the drumming and the recordings of buzzing wood pieces. Ritual music for untroubled thoughts. The perfect soundtrack for Antonin Artauds "Tarahumaras" or Carlos Castanedas "Teachings of Don Juan". Thanks for this." [TestPieYoming]
