Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Voices and Gongs


Another couple of  Syntonic Research releases.

From 1976, "Intonation" is supposed to represent dozens or hundreds of monks chanting subverbal syllables.

From 1970, "Tintinnabulation" is computer-generated bell tones.  The original LP could be played at all four turntable speeds 16 2/3,  3301/3, 45, and 78rpms.



1)     Intonation     29:50
2)     Tintinnabulation    29:19


The cover art is my own.

Have fun thinking deep thoughts!

See you Thursdays.

What Does YOUR Spirit Sound Like?

Georgia Kelly is a fine musician and harpist.  She composed this music to several Sanskrit hymns; a choral ensemble sings them, to her accompaniment.

 (This is the original album cover. I didn't have a way to scan it and combine the scans into a full-size image, so I redid the cover art.)



01 - The Sound Of Spirit (Hymns From The Rig Veda Sung In Sanskrit)
02 - Morningsong (Harp Solo)
03 - Dayana (Bird In Flight)


Also included is an insert with all of the liner notes, including the Sanskrit texts and English translations.

A lovely, fascinating, otherworldly experience awaits.

The Sound of Spirit

See you Thursday.
