THE CHI FACTORY
The Mantra Recordings LP (Gatefold)
Astral Industries 12 / UK / 2019
Dedicated to the life and work of Robert Lax (1915-2000), the American poet who lived on Pa, as a self-exiled hermit since the sixties. Jack Kerouac called Lax “one of the great original voices of our times, a Pilgrim in search of beautiful innocence”. His great minimalistic poetry became a source of inspiration for the Mantra Recordings. His life on Patmos was far away from public attention - quiet and always surrounded by the skies, seas, cats and birds.
