Ran Kirlian – Ixtab [AOREP011]

IxtabDark-ambient/noisy-drone minialbum based on live recordings.

The album concept is based on the figure of the Mayan goddess Ix Tab, who has a nice description at wikipedia: ”At the time of the Spanish conquest of Yucatan (1527-1546), Ix Tab, or Ixtab ([iʃˈtaɓ], ‘Woman whose work involves the use of a rope’), was the indigenous Mayan goddess of suicide by hanging. Playing the role of a psychopomp (a guide of souls), she would accompany such suicides to heaven. No certain depictions of Ixtab are known.” ( Source: wikipedia)
