Originally released in 1997 on Sub Rosa, now reissued. American bassist Bill Laswell (Praxis, Massacre, etc.) is the founder of "collision music" -- a collaborative concept that brings together musicians from divergent instrumentations and backgrounds. City of Light is about Banaras, a city older than history, tradition, way beyond legends. It is Shiva's land, founded at the dawn of creation. It is India's oldest and most fabled city. The Hindus call it Kashi, the luminous... The City of Light. This release features a truly stunning and contemplative merging of Eastern and Western sounds: from tabla to ambient drone and field recordings, in collaboration with some of the best experimental minds. Featuring Lori Carson, Coil, Trilok Gurtu, Tetsu Inoue, Hakim Bey. Recorded in Banaras, India, and mixed at Greenpoint Studio in Brooklyn. India meets New York in the industrial darkness.
