“Blake said that the body was the soul’s prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the ‘windows of the soul.’ When sex involves all the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experience.”—Jim Morrison on William Blake
Luise presents one of her dearest friends: With LUL#005, Constantijn Lange shares his impressions of the mystifying nature and culture of Morocco. In ‘Orange Atlas’, your mind travels through the kingdom, as Constantijn melts together field-recordings with his unique sense for acoustic expression.
The uplifting ‘Rote Nacht’ (A1) reveals the contrasting energy between the tumultuous city and the silent mountain, before gently giving way to the feelings of the exotic seascape in ‘Essaouira’ (A2). Delicately, yet suprising as ever, Acid Pauli rearranges the warm drums in ‘Essaouira’ (B1) to let your spirit rest in an imagined, green oasis, before it’s completely taken away by the lightness of the seabirds in ‘Taghazout’ (B2).

“Lou and I played music together, became best friends and then soul mates, traveled, listened to and criticized each other’s work, studied things together (butterfly hunting, meditation, kayaking). We made up ridiculous jokes; stopped smoking 20 times; fought; learned to hold our breath underwater; went to Africa; sang opera in elevators; made friends with unlikely people; followed each other on tour when we could; got a sweet piano-playing dog; shared a house that was separate from our own places; protected and loved each other.”— Laurie Anderson
