Originally released as a limited tape in 2015. This vinyl reissue of O Morto's (aka Mestre André) immersive electronic tryptic piece dedicated to the Ba'Aka people and its spirits is remastered here on green vinyl . Albeit, his music is now closer to a soundscape composition approach, O Morto actually started as a free improv/noise project in 2012. However, after releasing his debut Memento Mori (2012), O Morto slowly began to drift away from the harshest soundscapes to seek a new direction. He found it under the form of the polyphonic music played by Ba'Aka (a pygmy tribe that still lives in the Republic of Congo), and in a conceptualized image of Jengi, a forest spirit that feeds from the flesh of a sacrifice. Having this exotic array of influences in mind, O Morto collected samples, field recordings, and electronic sounds that would eventually appear in this triptych piece. The record explores the possibilities of sound manipulation as a way to create vivid and cinematic soundscapes. A noise maker by nature, André also plays in the excellent Älforjs and produces some of the most addictive beats as Notwan.
