Louise Landes Levi / Timo Van Luijk / Bart De Paepe – Kami LP
Like the ever changing shapeshifting nature of Kami in Japanese Shinto faith, the music on this new collaborative lp is itself a mirror reflecting, obscuring or modifying the ever changing rivers of sounds.
Louise Landes Levi has a long history in music from studying sarangi with Annapurna Devi and La Monte Young to performing with like minded poets as Ira Cohen and Simon Vinkenoog. As on the previous Ikiru lp she collaborates with Timo van Luijk (Af Ursin, Elodie, Asra, In Camera etc) and Bart De Paepe (Ilta Hämärä, Bombay Lunatic Ensemble etc). The trio weaves several delicate threads together into a surrealist, organic and overall poetic language.
Edition of 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl, with postcard.
Recorded and mixed at Kulta Saha, May 2017.
Dedicated to Kazuko Shiraishi, herself a kami.
