Alien Dreamtime (1993)

Recorded live at a rave in San Francisco, California, in February, 1993.

A meeting of the minds merging the arcane texts and psilocybic ruminations of Terence McKenna with San Francisco's own ambient scribe Jonah Sharp is one of the more inspired pairings in electronica's convoluted landscape. Here Sharp cranks up the analog synths, breaks out the didjeridoos (courtesy of Stephen Kent of Lights in a Fat City fame) and sets up some great, expansive, warbling electronic tundras over which McKenna espouses his lambent text.
