Healing, percussive-led sonics.
A collection of Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors’ work from between 1985 and 2005 has been released in a new compilation, called Selected Works 1985-2005, via Time Capsule.
A classically trained dancer, Roth worked as a dance instructor for the therapeutic workshop at San Francisco’s Esalen Institute as well as New York’s Arica School.
For Roth, “movement was a means through which to channel a wide spectrum of teaching, from experimental psychology to psychedelic counter-culture,” a note from the label explains.
Selected Works 1985-2005 contains 11 “percussive ambient recordings to induce altered states of consciousness through ecstatic dance.”
It follows the label’s reissue of Roth’s 1996 album Endless Waves Volume One in 2020.
