RAKSHA MANCHAM - Chös Khor - (Musica Maxima Magnetica-Italy-1993)

This Belgian group's music is strongly derived from the music of indigenous peoples worldwide, and is played on native instruments from Tibet, Egypt, Brazil, Morocco, Mali, Nepal and the Cameroon, along with many other acoustic percussion, wind and string instruments. (from Discogs)

 "Chös Khor" refers to a Tibetan concept, that can be translated as "the holy circle", "the holy enclosure" or "the holy enclave". "Chös Khor" represents the universe in which the human beings live, the world they inhabit. The musical themes developed in these recordings refer to human populations and their natural environment. "Chös Khor" offers visions of different parts of the World. So by creating that music, the aim of Raksha Mancham is to produce that vision of the World by suggesting images in the mind of the listener.(from their webpage)   click me

STARFISH POOL - Remixed - (Silver Recordings-Belgium-1997)

 The electronic project of Koen Lybaert - that evolved out of Starfish Enterprises - that was active between 1993 and 2003. Starfish Pool was working in the experimental area of minimal, rhythmic, ambient and noise in all its aspects. Since the very start it is the manipulation of loops - the basic idea of the way tracks were created as Starfish Pool. This concept that has nothing to do with the sound but more with the way that tracks where practically made. In 10 years' time Starfish Pool had more than 25 releases. 

Silver Recordings : Label run by Koen Lybaert (Starfish Pool) for several years in the late 1990s alongside the Respect Wax label. Both are now defunct, as are all of Lybaert's labels U-Cover (CD releases) and Inc.us (vinyl releases), etc.(info from Discogs)   click me
