GMT21 - D.K. - The Goddess is Dancing
Parisian DJ and producer D.K. - admired for releases on gentle labels Antinote, Melody as Truth and Second Circle - gives five new, original pieces to Good Morning Tapes in The Goddess is Dancing. A flowing journey of ruminative drumming and enthralling mallet melodics encoded with stirring percussive texture, The Goddess is Dancing is dedicated to the artist’s Vietnamese heritage and the ritual Hau Dong, described below:
"This tape is an imaginary interpretation of the music used in Vietnam’s ancestral/spiritual possession rituals called 'Hau Dong'. It’s a ceremony in 5 parts, whereby spirit mediums dance on each song to honor the mystical goddesses of Forest, Water and Heaven. Whilst dancing during these rituals, the Medium's appear to transform themselves into different characters....changing their personalities, as if various spirits have entered their bodies."
