Terminalia Amazonia, a new, subdued and momentous installment of Zu. The sound of a long, slow journey in pursuit of a moment. For the past four years, the band’s members have regularly visited an undisclosed indigenous village on the Ucayali River close to the border between Peru and Brazil. They’ve immersed themselves in the local ShipiboConibo culture’s ancient knowledge, teachings and rituals, some of which stretch back millennia. Zu’s work started as a series of nightly field recordings of the culture’s ceremonial healing songs, known as Icaros.Playing only vintage analogue synthesizers EMS Synthi, OSCar, Roland System100M, ARP 2600, OctavePlateau Voyetra8, Zu project dense, spectral layers of sound through damp rainforest atmosphere, weaving through sheltered gulleys and out into open glades, mottled with streaks of scattered light. Spontaneous and elaborate, grounded and transformative, the sound conveys its shamanic intent, so immersing the listeners in the present moment that their surroundings will melt away.2 x 180 gram vinyl, a thick 350gsm gatefold sleeve, white polylined disco bags, all protectively shrinkwrapped, with vinyls placed outside inside the gatefold, to avoid seam splits.This project is released in cooperation with Archaeological Records www.archaeologicalrecords.org, with conceptual development and support from Andrea Stillacci of Herezie and Giulio Di Mauro of AR.Pressing info 250 x Black, 250 x Crystal Clear sold out.
