MORNING TRIP

Credited as “Music For Relaxation", 'Cumulus' is the perfect music to encourage subconscious change, decrease blood pressure or pet the cat on the couch to.

Recorded in a Toronto apartment in 1985, "Cumulus" is an ultra-rare private-press ambient cassette release which was circulated amongst a small group of friends within the avant-garde theatre scene at the time. Brent Snyder’s interest and discovery of Frippertropics and Brian Eno inspired him to set up a 4 track tape recorder in the corner of his dining room to create the two slowly evolving guitar loop-based pieces that make up "Cumulus". The A-side, “Excursion”, drifts between subtle dusty peaks and valleys in an almost Basinski-esque way, while the subtle hums and textures of “Cumulus” gently levitates above the earth and settle into sublime tones similar to Steve Roach “Structures From Silence” and Brian Eno “Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks..

Laraaji & Lyghte

Celestial Realms

    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)
