About this item

Morning Trip is a new imprint under Telephone Explosion dedicated to releasing ambient, experimental and generally optimistic sounds.
Originally released on cassette in 1986, "Celestial Realms" is a collaborative album from New Age figurehead and Brian Eno-collaborator Laraaji, and fellow cosmic traveller Jonathan Goldman (aka Lyghte). Laraaji conjures his typically vivid soundworld of shimmering electric zither, while Goldman inhabits that world with pulsing guitar and droning synthesizer.
"Celestial Realms" provides a 46 minute blissful ambient voyage featuring zither, bells, synthesizer, and guitar.

“Finally, the best sustained trance music of the year can be found on Celestial Realms, a new co-creation of Laraaji and Lyghte, who use zither, bells, synthesizers, and guitar for their extraterrestrial adventures. Lyghte loves those very low, sustained, flowing tones, and Laraaji sails above one’s head with tinkling bells and zither glissandos. Definitely not for grounding or as background to washing dishes!” - Ramana Das (Music Editor, Yoga Journal 1986)

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Back in print for the first time since 1986, this collaboration between Laraaji & Lyghte could quite happily soundtrack a serene period of global rebirth after the imminent apocalypse cleanses the lizard people. Out of the bunkers and into the light...
