This recording of Jane Weaver re-scored by Neotantrik (Suzanne Ciani, Andy Votel, and Sean Canty) has been described by Andy Votel as the "incidental music" counterpart to the conceptual soundtrack of The Silver Globe (EGGS 019CD, EGGS 019LTD-CD, 2014). Invoking and refracting Weaver's hugely acclaimed The Silver Globe in one engrossing session recorded in Bergen, Norway, as part of an installation at the end of 2014, Neotantrik Globes contains Weaver's original material dissected, atomized, and diffused into a side of mercurial, open-ended electronics and mechanical process. Weaver's sylvan melodies, harmonies, and vibes are scrambled, extruded, and smeared so that one hears their morphing aspects in a swirling lightshow strafing from windswept ambience thru nebulous synth-space, garroting string-tension, and siren-like drone-pop to a screw-twisting denouement. The album is also notable for Ciani's use of some specially commissioned Buchla modules -- some of the first pieces produced by Don Buchla in years -- plus a Nagoya Harp played through a fuzz pedal and dulcimer fed through a space-echo. It's totally absorbing and is perhaps one of thee strongest recordings from the trio's one-of-a-kind setup, given an added dimension by Weaver's hugely evocative voice. Single-sided LP. Artwork by Andy Votel. Edition of 500.
