I've been rummaging around again in my Steamy Vaults and I've uploaded this album I recorded back in 2003.
Around a year earlier I had sold my sitar to fund the purchase of a Line6 DL4 delay/looper pedal. This pedal was the first 'affordable' looper pedal that would allow soundscaping with double/half-speed and forward/backwards mangling of the layered guitar sounds. I was a big fan of Robert Fripp's soundscaping - this was like a poor man's version of his gargantuan rack system.
This album is a deeply meditative collection of long, slow 'circulations' - it's no party album but (if I do say so myself) rewards a concentrated absorption in the slowly unfolding sounds (by whatever means you choose to attain such a state),
It is available to stream or download for free (full CD packaging artwork included with download) from my Bandcamp page ....https://steamabacusproductions.bandcamp.com/album/sound-mandalasSteve Baker - Sound Mandalas (2003)A collection of musical circulations
