Poland, 1982, avant-folk / ambient

Orkiestra Ósmego Dnia / Jan A. P. KaczmarekMuzyka na koniec: A beautiful, mostly-instrumental album centered around the meditative zither and its accompanying flutes. This is one of those rare albums that simultaneously disturbs and comforts, depending on whether you’re floating away on the woodwinds or being dragged back down to the cold earth by the screeching, cave-born strings. Minimal throughout. The vocals—when there are any—are distant and vaguely ritualistic.
