Description

DREAM THEORY IN MALAYA Fourth World Music Volume Two (1981) DREAM THEORY IN MALAYA is titled after a paper by visionary anthropologist Kilton Stewart, wh. .

Fourth world music" is a musical aesthetic described by Hassell as "a unified sound combining features of world ethnic styles with advanced electronic techniques. Upon its release, the album received praise from a variety of critics.

Overwhelmingly interesting and extremely variant, Jon Hassell's Dream Theory in Malaya is rescued from the stereotypical new age recipe, thanks to its ever-changing instrumental structure and the use of numerous eccentric instruments that emerge as the album progresses. The album's concept is taken from an anthropologist's 1935 study of a tribe of Malaysian aborigines who made it part of their daily routine to discuss the dreams they had the night before.

Producer, Composed By, Trumpet, Liner Notes – Jon Hassell. Recorded By – Andrew Timar. Another version exists (Dream Theory In Malaya (Fourth World Volume Two)) with identical artwork, but pressed at one of Sony DADC's facilities with different matrix and SID codes.

This album Dream Theory In Malaya (I keep wanting to type Dream Theater In Malaya, but that's another story), is the second, and lesser album in the Fourth World series. Like Possible Musics, this one has Jon Hassell playing his eerie electronically treated trumpet over tape loops and percussive rhythms. Unfortunately, this album does not have as much Eno, and has no Percy Jones. So while this album is still very good, it is missing some of the interesting qualities of the previous album. Still, this is a good album

Hassell is best known as the creator of Fourth World music, an acoustic-electronic blend of minimalism, jazz, drone, ambient, traditional African and Asian instruments and harmolodic signatures. Hassell unveiled the concept on his debut album, Vernal Equinox, in 1978

Hassell coined the term 'Fourth World' to describe his musical style, as expressed both in his trumpet playing and in his approach to composition. The distinct style combines the philosophy and techniques of minimalism with Asian and African influences and relies heavily on the use of electronic recording techniques. Played by.

Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). I bought this album during my college years. At the risk of sounding pompous this music is for people with high musical IQ, It requires a appreciation for sounds and a good musical background. When I first heard this album I was already familiar with Eno and with Robert Fripps work. Lots of details about the anthropological backstory, the music, a complete discography, plus a bit about the cover, which I admire every time I play the record.
