  • tuluum shimmering – space is the place / prince of peace – branch tapes

    out of stock

    branch tapes 11/12

    reissue of 2 cdrs previously issued separately by artist.
    Space is the Place (for Sun Ra) & Prince of Peace ( for Pharaoh Sanders)

    Several years back Jake(Tuluum Shimmering) offered to send recordings out to those who sent him something in the mail.
    I went ahead and sent some things and in return got an amazing box back several weeks later.
    Included were these two discs. Two single track long pieces that just blew me away and continue to blow me away to this day. Over the years the discs Ive owned have become worn or almost lost in the chaos and the need to have these recordings given a second life, especially on a physical format became important in my mind.


    Tuluum Shimmering recordings always seems to head towards somewhere very sacred and these two recordings are some of the strongest journeys for me.
    Much thanks for the chance to release this.

    limited to 22 copies
    inside artwork by me & j.astin.

    branch tapes 10

    I sat on my stoop at dusk last night remarking on the loss of the divine. How the landscape in front of me now so heavily civilized, felt razed and distant. Within moments the landscape shifted and the power lines and buildings seeped into the background and muted as the landscape exerted it’s true continuous nature that I had just been unable to see.
    These recording seem to bridge that gap; expressing that which is razed but also paying homage to something greater that runs beneath it all.
    There’s a piece on the second side that took me many listens to even hear, to really listen and have set in to my conscious to the point of it being my most favorite part of the tape. It was always there but only the shift of my own perspective brought about true appreciation.
    The artwork, dubbing and putting together of this tape went from deliberate ideas to something that existed beyond my immediate vision; something that brought me out of the sky and down to the point where the sea laps at your feet and the landscape folds out behind your back strong but ebbing at the shore.
    Many thanks for the chance to release this.

    “walked uphill all night,
    legs striding far into the air in front of us.
    Had to stop occasionally and chase these interconnected masses of bugs;
    imagined aspen trees of the insect world.
    Finally found refuge in a decrepit boathouse on a long wooden pier
    you could feel the tide
    slowly tug on the pilings beneath,
    as the sea pulled itself out.
    Finally the sea came back in and we went home,
    backs bent to the wind behind us.”
