14 Earth Ghosts Ben Livingston Cassette
14 Earth Ghosts is a collection of apparitions; hovering spirits emanating electronically morphed and looped guitar, churning and whispering in many voices. No overdubs, just loops conjured and manipulated in real-time, and edited afterwards.
Shrine 1: Grandmother Bay Tree is the sunlight filtering down through the leaves of an ancient bay tree; Watershed Fog Deity 2: Valley is a silvery fog gently moving through the Bishop pines; and Talisman 3: Whale Bone could be the body of a whale mourning its lost life in the sea... Grief at the looming extinction crises is a theme that runs through the album; loss of biodiversity and the hole it leaves in those remembering.
