crossing the reed sea [of weeds]

Exodus 13-15:

\”Schilfmeer\”, translated as Reed Sea, or Red Sea. Culled from a compilation of early Popol Vuh recordings – with a vaguely unsettling old testament motif – between 1971 and 1974, released on the italian Cicada label in 1988, and reissued on High Tide in 1994. Featuring:

Florian Fricke: piano, electronics; Daniel Fichelscher: guitar, percussion; Conny Veit: guitar; Djong Yun: Gesang; Al Gromer: Sitar; Holger Trültzsch: percussion.

Written by Florian Fricke.

Despite the biblical imagery, the tone here is significantly lighter and more fluid than one might initially expect; a soothing jazz concoction complete with \”Seeland\” tidal effects – Neu! 75 – and fluttering tabla.
