Gigging with a varying and often an extensive group, Kheta Hotem has visited the studio with a somewhat stripped basic essence. This release is a collection of sense-filling presentations starting with a ritual-like bowl ceremony, which leads into results closely related with free jazz and ethnomusic. In their gig brochure the group claims they continue the more than 1000 years old musical tradition of Komutia, where the musician acts as a mediator between the world of sounds and everyday existence. The instruments Kheta Hotem use are traditional instruments of ritual music: the didgeridoo and different percussions. However, the synthesizer and the electric guitar are not forgotten, either. Acoustic instruments, including the human guttural voices, meld with those produced electrically - the traditional Komutian rituals turn into avant-garde. One can admire and listen to the outcome as an impressive technical performance, and experience the atmosphere to the marrow.
