Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

The origin of the Popol Vuh "myth" is a document of ancient Mayan mythology
and culture (now Guatemala). Written in K’iche’ (a Mayan language)
mid 16th Century, it chronicles the creation of humankind.

A two hour experience with Popol Vuh, Florian Fricke’s prog-rock 19-album experiment,
alongside Can and Tangerine Dream, soundtracks for Werner Herzog, early Moog work,
and trippy journeys that influenced artists from Radiohead to Freddy Mercury.

4 views of a Mayan vessel. Drawing is more fluid than even the Japanese equivalent, and completely psychedelic.
Avatar 3:27pm david w:

Geez1 That is remarkable. Thanks!

Avatar 3:28pm Sem:

I'll say, check the eyes on that toad. Licking himself, no doubt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks @geezerette! Now that they've found a zillion more Mayan ruins in the Guatemalan jungle, maybe there are more "vessels to be found. Goog thing it isn't 2012 anymore!
Avatar 3:29pm geezerette:

Sem! That would explain it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Jeff Golick:

I'll have whatever they were having in that vessel.

On second thought, never mind. I'll just listen to this show.
Avatar 3:31pm geezerette:

Webhamster Henry, yeah, but Terrence wasn't far off the mark!
Hope you're right about extra crockery!
Avatar 3:32pm david w:

I'm trying to avoid advocating for psychedelics while listening to this music. I'll leave it at that.
Avatar 3:34pm geezerette:

The music is more than enough!

Avatar 4:42pm david w:

So βrian, has the dinner party started?
Avatar 4:42pm northguineahills:

Will do so, meds eff up my circadian rhythms and make me nauseous. I only get decent sleep if I drink, which I shouldn't do on my meds very often.
Avatar 4:43pm βrian:

I need to be more selective when inviting guests, I guess.
Avatar 4:43pm Sem:

Clicky-starred the show. I will pass this way again. Grateful for these two hours.
Avatar 4:45pm βrian:

My cicadian rhythm is on a 7-year cycle. Feels great to shuck that exoskeleton, though.
Avatar 4:45pm david w:

Thanks, Sem Your enthusiasm is appreciated.
Avatar 4:47pm geezerette:

Elegant hippy music. I've been a jaguar for the last hour and a half, time to resume human form.
Avatar 4:48pm david w:

Thanks, geez. Elegant indeed. Agreed!
Avatar 4:51pm david w:

A quick point. This person, Daniel Fichelscher, was a loyal collaborator with Fricke for decades and deserves a mention.

"I want to step across" (the line between idea and manifestation):

Dream-sound collage, originally made live on radio, with music layers, word inspirations, live phone callers, fly-away loops. Just, wow.
