Mountainhood is the musical labor of Michael Curtis Hilde. Calling Michael prolific doesn’t quite cover it, between 2005 and 2011 Michael has written, recorded and released over thirteen hours of music – Spagyric comprises one hour of music culled from that massive storm of song.
Tracks range between dark woodland psychedelics, tender folk ballads, new age synth instrumentals, musique concrete, and more all channeled through the truly powerful imagination and mystical perspective that is Mountainhood. This tape contains tone-portals, poetic-gateways, song-ships that can transport you far-out to the furthest reaches of a science fiction landscape, or far-in to your own mysterious psycho-spiritual depths.
As fans of all of Michael’s work we at Gnome Life are proud and excited to present this seventeen track, curated album. We think of it as a distillation of his unique vision, and also a chance to make an inroad for the uninitiated into his vast and beautiful back-catalog.
