Leimer, K. - Land of Look Behind

"Written as a soundtrack for Alan Greenberg's documentary on the death and funeral of Bob Marley, the music for Land of Look Behind was produced in a little under two months. The music draws extensively on location recordings made for the film, using the voices and place sounds of Jamaica to frame rhythm patterns and cadences. The sound sources range form urban to rural and are applied in both literal and heavily processed forms. Digitally remastered release of the 1983 vinyl."-press release. "This is as atmospheric an album as one could ask for - dense polyrhythms mixed with all sorts of wondrous sounds and beguiling aural images. There is a sense of tropical spirits at work, a deep regard for ethnic culture and a reverence for the mysteries of nature. Reference points include Byrne/Eno, Jade Warrior's Floating World, and Jon Hassell's Fourth World soundscapes. The music is intimate, relaxed, and immediate, recognizable while retaining an air of the exotic. A very interesting LP that examines the past while integrating it with today's technology."-OP
