 "Ceremonial Music for Spore Alter" 


"Following the exotic and electronic jazz form as the pulsating primordial spirits of his first album titled Beguiling Isles, Effigy Mounds plays back like a hallucinatory cave field recording where snippets of tape were collaged to reveal the waves of a deep portal opening, sounds of bubbling ingestion of strange and luminous compounds, and the rhythmic pulse of spores landing in Earth's atmosphere by way of shooting stars. Less exotica and more experimental, Corum's latest document plays like an alternate soundtrack to the film Altered States in some forbidden South Pacific isle lodge during the magical dialogue of extra terrestrial speech.  Highly Recommended! "

The following 'tour only' cassettes can be found by the Lost Discoveries Exotic Music Shop.

 Experimental India Radio:  
Volume I - Swara Exchanges



External Service began with a broadcast counter private station performances fit for use by a Broadcaster launched as a link between Inner Frequencies to the rest of the world, later adopting Experimental India Radio as on-air name for independence. EIR is a service accessible through networks by using Akashvani - "celestial announcement" or "sky sound"). It operates on a different shortwave band frequency through live presentations for each city, especially in countries with broadcasts on matters of national and international importance, and demonstrates the experimental way of life through its use of transmitted Indian instrument invention, trance devotions, and comedy programs. EIR audio cassettes (which are sought-after by international radio hobbyists) are issued personally by EIR for reception reports of their broadcasts.

BEGUILING ISLES: 
Born of Earth's Torments 

12" LP now available at www.psychicsound.com


"Beautiful melodies waft in and out of your consciousness like a humid island ether. It's a travelogue, hypnotizing and also lulling. It's easy to fall under Corum's island spells producing sweaty aural excitement and imagining the "Specter of Polar Reversal", as described in the liner notes, twinkling it's eye before the volcanic explosion of horns, drums and keys lay down a lush rush of eerie tropical groove."

LIVE TRANSMISSION FROM THE L.A. PLANETARIUM:

***************************************************
2011

GILI GILI MEN
And Their Bag of Tricks
 

  Experiements in lathe cut loops of exotic winds, horns and singing inspired by
an angry snakecharmer in the northern Indian who let loose dozens of snakes in a government office, sparking chaos and panic.  Snakes were climbing up the tables and chairs. The office was full, there were nearly 100 officials and clerks and many more visitors.  There was total chaos for several hours.
The snakes are still hiding in the building.

Corum / White Gourd / Zurna / Arrington de Dionyso

Limited tape cassette available at LIGHTEN UP SOUNDS

Never Use the Same Door Twice:
Soundtrack 12" LP 



 “Occult magick, sequential art, books on tape, and cut-up literature—Fake Hospital Information Office and Group Operators, the mixed-media experiment of Million Brazilian’s Grant Corum, is at the intersection of all these and more. Evoking images of ancient ceremony, spectral phenomena, and early dungeon-crawling RPGs, Fake Hospital Book I was designed as a “reality hacking” operation in which Corum attempts “to forge spirits within experimental arts and performance.” Essentially a story told through music, projection, and narrated dream states, Corum bewitches the senses and guides the listener through an adventure unlike any other.”
 - Chris Cantino, The Mercury
