"Travel Diary is the latest CD release from the multifaceted eerie droning project called Nimh. This last offering features pieces reissued from a previous CD-R called Lanna Memories with others sound materials and unreleased tracks. The musical content provides a colorful ethno-phonographic experience including a large corpus of micro-sounds taken from rituals of 'everyday life' among Eastern Thai regions and secular communities. Echoes from the Hills opens with a serene-poetical moody prelude using thai mouth organ. The Market Place is a walking odyssey through cinematic concrete sonorities punctuated by cyclical percussive scintillations. Village Feast is an uneasy hypnogenic trip through confused crowdy sounds melted with tellurian processual voices and endlessly repetitive acoustic chords. Children Memories combine a vast catalogue of sounds taken from children plays. The sound treatment gives to the ensemble 'sonic driving' effects. The Lanna Memories parts are entrancing-ultrasensorial dronescapes, featuring OM resonances, dense buzzing lines and an avalanche of mantra-like acoustic wind instruments, anamnesic ghostly religious voices, psalmodies and natural noises. To sum up thing, Travel Diary is an intimate theatre of sounds with great neurophysiological impacts on the listener. This is life experienced as a spiritual concert. Music as an expressive vehicle for a cultural and cultual adventure. A must have for neophytes who want to explore Nimh idiosyncrasic music universe." - Philippe Blache / Progarchives
