Psalmody, small bells, big cymbals, gongs and drums -- this puzzling collage of Tibetan Buddhist rites recordings is hypnotizing. It opens the way to the state of trance. The slight electronic arrangement reminds the listener that reality is not so far. The two twenty-minute tracks instantly convey an unknown and fascinating universe.

Mantra chanting accelerates, horns become more insistent and a mystical atmosphere arises. With Tibetan Buddhism Trip, Akuphone starts to explore ritual and ceremonial music, here with a subtle mix of field recordings and electronic handlings.

Over the years King Gong, aka Laurent Jeanneau, has specialized in the recording of ethnic minorities, particularly from South East Asia. He has recorded over 160 albums and his work is now largely well-known around the globe. An impressive collection allows him to manipulate, assemble, and reconstruct his field recordings in order to create new sound landscapes. Recorded in Tibet and Yunnan (China) between 2006 and 2013. Recomposed in Berlin in 2016. Includes insert with unseen pictures and download card including a live performance in Bristol.
