Chi Factory ‎– The Mantra Recordings

$35.00

Astral Industries, the London-based label diligently chronicling transportive ambient works of times past, present Chi Factory’s Mantra Recordings.

A fourth world formulation dedicated to the life and work of Robert Lax (1915-2000), an American minimalist poet who lived on Patmos, Greece; The Mantra Recordings is a warbling, whispering and introspective evocation of the island, drifting through consciousness along tides of downtempo beats, environmental recordings, radio interference, flourishing flutes, acoustic guitar and lush synthesizers across four 21-minute movements.

The organic invocations of Chi Factory, founded in 1984 by Hanyo van Oosterom, have surfaced across four Astral Industries releases to date, culminating in this tribute to the poet whom Jack Kerouac called “one of the great original voices of our times, a Pilgrim in search of beautiful innocence."
