Tongues of Light present Channelled Messages At The End Of History. Totally stunning record, drawing cosmic, primordial vectors between glossolalia, sound poetry and improvised music via the nebulæ of Youtube for Demdike Stare and Andy Votel's Pre-Cert Home Entertainment. Arguably the label's most striking, even transcendent release, Channelled Messages At The End Of History started life as a gift for a friend following long conversations about the nature of improvisation, spontaneity and musical mediumship and subsequently dawned as a remarkable document of occult praxis in the digital age. Tongues of Light acts as a sort of psycho-pomp or liminal interpreter for a wide range of belief systems, all rooted in the common conviction that they are channeling sounds from some "other" or "higher" entity or dimension, much in the same way that Sun Ra believed he was channeling celestial bodies thru his music or the Dogon people of Sub-Saharan Africa believed they received alien codes describing humanity's heritage. The record unfurls as a seamlessly sequenced compilation of samples - all framed by plasmid drones and synth pads which connect and highlight the links between seemingly disparate elements. By the record's end the effect is really quite uncanny; compounding disparate new age coordinates on a common plane, and thereby revealing their underlying, subconscious metaphysics. It's great to hear Pre-Cert Home Entertainment connecting the dots between generations of new age thought and practice. This slab will stand out as one of their defining releases for time to come. Features sleeve artwork designed by Andy Votel. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering. Edition of 500.
