Packaging: 2LP

Sound Mind Sound Body was partly inspired
by exploring some of the working principles of
Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, extrapolated
by Rafael via a unique signal path leading out of
his guitar. He paid notice to the massive impact
of discreet gestures, creating slow-moving
tones and spacious orchestral resonances,
drifting and droning with glacial majesty, hardly
recognizable as guitar much of the time. The
first of these pieces were recorded in 1987,
and in 1994, they were released on Portugal's
AnAnAnA, with material evolved in the years
between, producing a remarkable equilibrium
over an hour's listening. Further evidence of
the necessity for gradual development exists in
subsequent reissues: for the 1998 Moikai reissue,
"AE 1" was recorded, and for this edition, "AER
7 E" was rerecorded and the material for "AE 2"
was recorded for the first time ever-all from
original processes as noted, and none of which
will cause the listener to notice a change in the
otherworldly atmosphere.
