Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 8, 2021 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

@Rev: realizing I really need to hear the records of his that I don't yet know – very curious about that last one, "Mind Storm, the final album he made prior to his emphatic retirement, Burchette used “pink sound,” a phenomenon known in acoustical science to open the mind to thrilling psychic revelations, setting down two side-long pieces that form a reflecting crystal ball for squalls of deep brain imagery."

i remember being very young, buying this in total ignorance because I read it was good and hoping for another Brown Rice, and experiencing that very rewarding sort of listen that comes when the music is nothing like you expected but – you bought it jack, you better learn to appreciate it. I spent ages inside this record, just learning about listening

I had somewhat similar experience with John Coltrane Live in Seattle. I had heard some of the early Atlantic Coltrane recordings which I enjoyed OK but they didn't really grab me. Then Live in Seattle was like running into a wall and not knowing what hit us. My friend and I decided to sit down and deep listen to it (and got very stoned) and it lifted us up and the walls melted, or something like that. 😁

Flash @930 Thank you for articulating that. i experienced it several times - sometimes growing to love it, other times not...but folks now my age when i did that don't get that because most of the time they don't pay for the music so they don't give it much of a chance (which is likely a big part of why most "millenials" and "zoomers" listen to shallow crap...no substance but easy to humm along with)
