Agricultural Light & Magick Vol. XI - Slovenian Hills

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.

Gustaf Hall, Pekarna Cultural Centre, Maribor, Slovenia (28/04/14)

Jalla Jalla, Ljubljana, Slovenia (29/04/14)

Two sets in Slovenia from the tour with Innercity, broken up by a field recording of cicadas. Slovenia is beautiful & it was wonderful to stay in a farmhouse out in the hills. I've added some photos to give a sense of it. One of our hosts, Samo, joined me on his modified hurdy gurdy for the second set. I was just coming to terms with doing sets with just voice, shruti box & low whistle but it did me the world of good to untangle myself from pedals & electrickery... Samo & Anja Kravanja were our hosts & played both shows with us, though we sadly missed their Maribor set having been kept in Serbia by our previous host's kindness, heh...
