Our new release: live ambient improvisation “Wiatr” by Rudawoda and O. Lubencov.

Our new release: “Celestial Funerals” by Gamardah Fungus.
The third long-play by “Gamardah Fungus” (Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine) is named after a common funerary practice in Tibet, wherein a human corpse is cut in specific locations and placed on a mountaintop, exposing it to birds of prey. The government of China prohibited the practice (which it considered barbaric) in the 1960s but started to allow it again in the 1980s. This practice is considered to be not only honorable but also the only acceptable by many Tibetans.
This album takes its origins in the admiration that Gamardah Fungus musicians feel for Tibetan spirit and traditions. Main theme from "Celestial Funerals" was performed by their friend and colleague Tenzin Sambu.
Genre borders have expanded since the duo's previous work. Besides the ambient atmosphere, brown noise and keyboards this record features the sounds of meditative drums, movie samples and self-made instruments, including waterphone and kalimba. In general, all the five tracks on this album can be described as a mixture of funeral doom and dark ambient.
