The Invisible Opera Co of Tibet
The Bardo of Becoming CD
New Invisible album!
Some of the tranformative aims of the Bardo Thodrol made music
This album, named after the fourth Bardo, or 'intermediate state' between death and rebirth, demonstrates the Invisibles' aspirations and their continuing development as a band as they strive to achieve them.
The musical reference points for the first 4 tracks contain enjoyable echoes of Deya-esque Gong Family recordings, Here & Now, Caravan and Curved Air - all admiral references.
Tracks five to 9 are deeper fare. A elemental sonic journey through 'The Four Fearsomes' no less, until you emerge slightly breathless at the revelations of tracks 10 and 11.
It's an enjoyably brave album which will reward engagement.
Very well recorded, mixed and mastered by the production team of Brian Abbott and Dave Kendall.
