Laraaji - Vision Songs Vol. 1 (Marbled Orange) LP



American musician Laraaji is one of new age's most distinctive, prolific, and charismatic artists. A master of multiple instruments, he primarily constructs his lengthy, meditative soundscapes from an electronically altered zither, hammered dulcimer, kalimba, synthesizers, piano, and other instruments, as well as natural sounds and vocals. Since first gaining exposure in the early '80s after a chance meeting with ambient innovator, who produced the landmark release Ambient 3: Day of Radiance (1980), Laraaji has released countless cassettes and albums, ranging from the mantra-like synth pop of Vision Songs, Vol. 1 (1984) to the extended drones of 1987's Essence/Universe. Additionally, he has collaborated with several electronic, experimental, rock, and dub musicians, including Japanese dub crew (The Way Out Is the Way In, 1995), ('s Sacrifice, 1998), and Philadelphia duo (FRKWYS Vol. 8, 2011). On solo efforts like 2017's Sun Gong and 2020's Sun Piano and Moon Piano, he focuses on playing a single instrument. He has continued to reissue and unearth older material with releases such as the 2023 box set Segue to Infinity, and to release collaborations like Baptismal (with). In addition to his musical career, he is well-known for his Laughter Meditation Workshops.
