Ma Ja Le' returns in fine form with Chromosphere, their second offering following the superb Saturn and Elsewhere (2001) collection. Like sonic archeologists, Ma Ja Le' recover sounds thought to be forever lost in time and space. Ancestral rhythms, noises from inside the sun, and cryptic transmissions beamed over thousands of light years are captured and cataloged here in this mood- altering construction kit.
Intense percussion loops, disintegrating analog instruments, forbidden Theremin transmissions, solarized electric guitars, and more are presented with the awesome fidelity and advanced production techniques that define the current state of the Ma Ja Le' sound. The Chromosphere collection is an extremely effective one-stop scoring tool, as well as a great resource for sweetening tracks in almost any modern music genre.
