Hyperyak ‘Angelic Weaponry’


SKU: 5030820029399 Categories: ,


HyperYak is a unique fusion of musical worlds. From the traditional Mongolian song Four Mountains (Based on Dorvon Uul, a song about the four mountains that surround the Mongolian Capital, Ulaan Baatar) to the intense dialogue of Hippogriff ("Sired by a Griffon out of a mare: like it's father's were its feathers and wings, its forelegs, head, and beak; in all its other parts it resembled its mother; they come, though rarely, from the Rhiphaean Mountains, far beyond the icebound seas" - Ariosto 'Orlando Furioso). From the calm of Heavens Wind (Inspired by a Jalait Mongolian poem 'Tengri-yin Salkhin': "The Winds of Heaven shift and change, your body will not live forever; your mortal body has but its brief span of life. May we, fast friends that have met, all live long and happily together!") to the drama of Installing Ley Lines ("Their time machine landed in a suburban street; they set up their cones and drills and began installing ley lines").
