About this item

Dedicated to the life and work of Robert Lax (1915-2000), the American poet who lived on Patmos, Greece, as a self-exiled hermit since the sixties. Jack Kerouac called Lax 'one of the great original voices of our times, a Pilgrim in search of beautiful innocence'.

His great minimalistic poetry became a source of inspiration for the "Mantra Recordings". His life on Patmos was far away from public attention - quiet and always surrounded by the skies, seas, cats and birds. Lax was a real dreamcatcher.

As has become the norm for Chi Factory on Astral Industries - a veritable smorgasbord of all things esoteric, ambient and ritualistic, gelled together with a chloroplastic binding that emanates a natural, biotic nature. If you've ever wondered what'd be like to visit the region in Terrence McKenna's 'True Hallucinations' novel, this could well take you halfway there... Recommended.
