Rule of the Mountain EP was recorded from live recording sessions in a airless box on the 18th floor of a Sydney hotel. The contrast of surroundings from living in a small coastal village to visiting a major metropolis mirrored the contrast of the natural open generosity of the human spirit to the mean neoliberal negligent rulers fucking things up royally around the world. Dante's Purgatorio, part two of his Divine Comedy, describes two types of people on the lower slopes of purgatory - the Excommunicate and the Late-Repentant. A component of the Late Repentant are the Negligent Rulers.

What has made the Negligent Rulers of our world lose their light? For all our sakes I hope they do not become the Late-Repentant.

Modular Synthesis vs Quartz Composer
Sound vs Vision

Falling suns, dying stars
Dirt between our toes

The Golden Rod from tip to tail
The Knowing of Truth
Revealed in strange glows of
Fractured Signals

from centre
from Self
The priests dethroned
The Gates are open
Take Your Place
