Agricultural Light & Magick Vol. V - Rocks Fall, Ravens Circle

by Raising Holy Sparks



The Agricultural Light & Magick series compiles various live appearances (& occasionally other ephemera) since Raising Holy Sparks was summoned in 2011. Lately I've been playing under my own name also, but there have only been a handful of appearances thus far.

Casa Del Vento, Ravenna, Italy (01/05/14)

Another show from the jaunt with Innercity. After my equipment failure one night in Serbia, I decided to go acoustic for the rest of the tour. Playing in a beautiful farmhouse beside a vineyard in the countryside near Ravenna was a magickal night for me. Threw Agitated Radio Pilot, United Bible Studies & some covers into the mix & mispronounced an Italian phrase I heard earlier. Great to meet Aldo Becca & the others too. As ever, the best food is in Italy. Sounds of insects at night outside as I got lost stargazing... The cover photo was taken at the farmhouse, though the name of the person in it escapes me. Reminded me of Nick Drake...

For Aldo.

The Highland Widow's Lament was written by Robert Burns.
