Call to Prayer



SKU: AAX-132 Categories: ,

INFO: "Call to Prayer" is an esoteric experience that serves as a physical manifestation of a truly intangible feeling. The recording was captured from a rooptop in Kadiköy, Istanbul, while DREKKA was on tour passing through Turkey, and features the distant but penetrating soundwaves of the Islamic call to prayer as they rang throughout the city from blown out PA speakers and windows, drifting like a mist into the ears of all who were near. The micro-tonal singing is dissonant yet spiritually rich, and forms a dense tapestry when blended with the additional layers of Optigan organ and vocals added by DREKKA. The weight of centuries of civilization can be felt in the prayer, and the somber soundscapes that DREKKA weaves further the timeless nature of the recording.

"Call to Prayer" has been lathe cut in mono one at a time into 8" squares of white polycarbonate, enhancing the lo-fidelity experience of witnessing the actual call to prayer in real life, and we recommend both 33.3 and 45 rpm playback for differing but equally poignant listening variations. The label features the same artwork as the cloth bag, but upon playback of the record it becomes a hypnotic, rotating, quasi-animated sequence of patterns that help aid in meditative practices.

Notice: Due to the hand-made nature of lathe cut records, the fidelity & consistency of each copy will vary slightly. An assortment of audio ailments such as dropouts, warble, pitch-bending, static, crackle, hiss & extreme frequency shifting are to be expected, and all flaws which may arise are entirely condoned as adding cohesion to the release concept.

PACKAGING: One-sided white polycarbonate lathe cut with full color double-sided insert on matte white 100lb paper housed inside silkscreen-printed 100% muslin cloth bag with brown water-based ink. Includes digital download card.

FORMAT: one-sided 8" lathe cut [white polycarbonate]
