Popol Vuh "In den Garden Pharaos" by Lamarca

Sempre faço questão de colocar o autor da idéia de um post, acho muito legal alguém perder seu tempo pra dar uma dica, dividir um som que goste ou está ouvindo e deixa bem claro a história do compartilhar.

O Lamarca acompanho desde que entrei nesse universo da net e começei a postar algumas coisas e daí pra cá ele tb me acompanha com suas críticas (qdo passam de duas linhas é um esporro,rs) com sua amizade e tb com sua paciência em ler alguns livros que escondo em emails.

Mas veja bem se é fácil receber um email assim!

Só que esse é o Lamarca que conheci e continua o mesmo pelos séculos afora, as vezes sumindo e ressurgindo do nada com algo como Naná Vasconcelos, Joe Satriani ou Popol Vuh, thanks my dear friend.

Obs: ele subiu o disco e me enviou esta missiva com a primeira capa e aí, fiz o que alguns chamam de excentricidade e me chamam de prolixo; talvez se o Lamarca fizesse seu blog ia agradar de cara, prq escreve só o necessário e os posts seriam menos extensos,ré,ré,ré.meu querido,já que estou de bom humor, aqui vão umas dicas:

1) surgiu com o movimento krautrock;
2) a primeira banda alemã a usar o sintetizador moog;
3) o nome foi inspirado no livro sagrado dos indios
quiché, da guatemala;4) na mesma época da formação do popol vuh,
um grupo norueguês adotou o mesmo nome.

o restante fica por sua conta.Popol Vuh was a German electronic avantgarde band founded by pianist and keyboardist Florian Fricke in 1969 together with Holger Trülzsch (percussion) and Frank Fiedler (recording engineer and technical assistance).Other important members during the next two decades included Djong Yun, Conni Veit, Daniel Fichelscher, Klaus Wiese and Robert Eliscu.

The band took its name from the Popol Vuh, a manuscript containing the mythology of the Post-Classic Quiché Maya people of highland Guatemala and south east Mexico; the name translates roughly as "meeting place."

The first album, Affenstunde, released in 1970, can be regarded as one of the earliest ambient music, space music or New Age music works, featuring the then new sounds of the Moog synthesizer together with ethnic percussion.This continued for only one more album, In den Gärten Pharaos, and material later to be released on the soundtrack to "Aguirre", before Fricke largely abandoned electronic instruments in favor of piano-led compositions from 1972's Hosianna Mantra forward.

This album also marked the start of exploring overtly religious themes rather than a more generally spiritual feeling within the music.

The group evolved to include all kinds of instruments: wind and strings, electric and acoustic alike, combined to convey a mystical aura that made their music spiritual and introspective.Popol Vuh influenced many other bands from Europe with their uniquely soft but elaborate instrumentation, that took inspiration from Tibet, Africa, and pre-Columbian America.

They created dream-like soundscapes along with psychedelic walls of sound, and are regarded as precursors of contemporary world music, as well of new age music and ambient music.

The band contributed soundtracks to the films of Werner Herzog, including Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Nosferatu, Fitzcarraldo, Cobra Verde, Heart of Glass and The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, in which Fricke appeared.Florian Fricke died in Munich on December 29, 2001, and the group disbanded.

In October 2003 Klaus Schulze wrote:
"Florian was and remains an important forerunner of contemporary ethnic and religious music. He chose electronic music and his big Moog to free himself from the restraints of traditional music, but soon discovered that he didn't get a lot out of it and opted for the acoustic path instead. Here, he went on to create a new world, which Werner Herzog loves so much, transforming the thought patterns of electronic music into the language of acoustic ethno music
."In den Gärten Pharaos is the second album by Popol Vuh. It was originally released in 1971 on the label Pilz.

Tracks:
