版元即完売、凄い音盤がリイシュー!! 1950年からトラディショナル、コンテンポラリー、ワールドミュージックを手掛けたアメリカの名門Lyrichordの80年作が再発!! 40〜50年代にアメリカの女流前衛映画作家として多くの名作を残し、その他振付師、写真家としても様々なアーティストに影響を与えたMaya Deren。当時幾つかのフィルムを制作した後、ヴードゥー教の研究/映像制作の為にハイチを旅した際に録音されたお祭り&儀式録音が本作。単なる現地録音ものには留まらない崩壊〜混濁した音像へと変貌する驚異的イメージの怪作。オリジナルは赤と黒の2種のジャケット、更にカセットバージョンもありましたが、本作はそのどれとも違う"茶&赤"によるマットなシルク刷り仕様。デザインは日本のコンポーザー、パフォーマー伊藤貞司。マスト。



"Maya Deren journeyed to Haiti to make a film of ritual dances, instead, she came to be accepted as a Voudoun initiate, whose devotees commune with the cosmic powers through invocation, offerings, song and dance of the Voudoun pantheon of deities, or Loa, whom are witnessed as being living gods and goddesses, actually taking possession of their devotees. Deren describes the relationship between magic, science and religion bringing a uniquely lyrical voice to her narrative. This paints a multi-textured, infinitely complex portrait of a spiritual tradition with roots stretching back to the very dawn of humanity. Joseph Campbell calls Divine Horsemen “the most illuminating introduction that has yet been rendered to the whole marvel of the Haitian mysteries as ‘facts of the mind.’” Included in this album are some of the first recordings ever made during religious ceremonies near Croix de Missions and Petionville featuring selections that serve as a soundtrack to the film she shot documenting Voodoo ceremonies and festivals conveying the incantatory power of the ritual drumming and singing. One can hear the sounds of nature while processions begin across the landscape further giving the effect of an audio memoir." - PSR
