Native Tongue is my only release under the Yurt moniker. This tape is comprised of 12 improvised (channeled) jaw harp compositions. The first 11 tracks are solo improvisations, the 12th track is a layered composition with 4 different harps and a drum. The jaw harp is known by many names throughout the world, in English alone it is called Jew's harp, jaw harp, juice harp, mouth harp & trump. Hundreds of cultures around the globe have independently discovered this mystical instrument...Native Tongue utilizes 11 different harps from 10 different regions/cultures – my personal collection.

Jaw harps are exceptionally unique instruments because the mouth and throat serve as the resonance chamber for the metal or wood reed. The sound enters the body of the performer, the internal universe, before being "released" into the external world.

ABOUT THE ECHOMANCY TAPE SERIES

This release is part of our 1st edition of the Echomancy (I) Tape Series. Echomancy means divination through music. The music within the series is varied, but each song/album can be followed back into the single source reality. Old magic spills out of the tapes and onto the occult packaging – cardboard boxes, copper-foil embossed with esoteric symbols. 100% recycled card-board (30% post-consumer), no glue. Comes with tape, bookband, digital cover art & liner-notes, and mp3 download.
