about

Leaving Records presents its second archival installment with legendary New Age composer Laraaji, all material previously self-released and distributed in ltd. quantities during the 1980s.
— — — —

Om Namah Shivaya from 1984 finds Laraaji using drum machines and stream-of-consciousness vocal mantra to make new-age trance pop.

LR100 Laraaji – Om Namah Shivaya 1984, 1LP
“This original 1984 cassette home recording was inspired by request for personal long play soundtrack to accompany a delivery room child birth in Florida. It was intended to wlecome a newborn child with love, ecstatic joy, and high positivism. I used the Casiotone M70 electric keyboard and chat sang wihle in a prepared vision trance. C Major.” -Laraaji

Be Still and Glow collects three long-form titles from the deep and seemingly endless pool of cassette archives from Laraaji Nadabrahmananda during peak productivity years in the 1980s. Curated, remastered, and restored to its utmost listening enjoyment potential by Leaving Records’ Matthew “Matthewdavid” McQueen alongside Laraaji. Initially unearthed and transferred from tape by Douglas McGowan.

LR101 Laraaji – Sun Zither 1&2 1984, CS
“90+ minutes of non-stop sun-drenched Zither Ecstacy”
“A refreshing new sound journey through ecstatic hammered open-tuned zither string board, through jazz-funk rhythms with improvised rubber-tipped mallets, through rattled, stopped Zither. Chaos with wooden chopsticks, through ethereal steel slide string sound exploration to take the classic zither sound way out of the box. An exploratory adventure in sustained open modal tuning, elegant electronics and virtuoso performance mastery” -Laraaji

LR102 Laraaji – Tonings 1&2 1980s, CS
“Tonings 1: Shimmering celestial Zither and OM chant continual deep induction listening for expanded inner-stillness.” -Laraaji
“Tonings 2: OM chimes ladder, Kalimba (African thumb piano), hand chimes, spontaneous laughter release, chant, & chimes distortion (heavy at times towards end.)” -Laraaji

LR103 Laraaji – Celestrana / Deep Chimes Meditation 1980s CS
“Celestrana: Calming, gentle, continual, patient, relaxed-pace solo electric zither feeling. Home cassette recorded 1980’s. Mood of contemplative stillness. Peaceful, introspective listening.”
“Deep Chimes Meditation: Classic, Space, Peace, Zen, Timelessness”
-Laraaji
