the chthonic state

body residents of the chthonic state*: it's roundabout time to get things in order for a summer tour. if you have written before about having a show in America (for now) or would like to put one on, please drop a line: surely some conventional bookings will come into play too. but we're most curious about the good people and things waiting behind your door when you open it. be it a house concert, art space, party in the woods or meadow or what have you. Amy Annelle will be playing all new songs, songs that are nearly done being commited to the recorded format [------>now perhaps you are thinking about being commited elsewhere, like the octagonal Insane Asylum on Roosevelt Island in 1839] Ralph White too will be playing songs from his forthcoming solo album. And they will probably do a few shows as the duo Precious Blood, which is another thing altogether: "Precious Blood is steeped in folk music's strange past"~~Adam Schragin, Austinist *********************** 2008 Summer Tour of the Chthonic States
Amy Annelle solo, Ralph White solo (and some shows as Precious Blood) Fare Forward, Voyagers! and thank ye! xxamy annelle. *********************** *chthonic...typically refers to the interior of the soil, rather than the living surface of the land, or the land as territory. It evokes at once abundance and the grave. The term 'chthonic' can be used to describe the spirit of nature within, the unconscious earthly impulses of the Self, one's material depths, but not necessarily with negative connotations. In the positive sense, it appears as a 'spirit of nature', creatively animating Man, things, and the world. (from the Greek khthonios, of the earth, from the earth; pertaining to the Earth)
