360 degrees of freedom is overwhelming in music, and you need not truly begin to find freedom until you put yourself under extremely narrow constraints.” It was with this quote that Don Slepian laid the groundwork for over 40 years of musical output. Slepian’s work draws equally from the harmonic terrain he explored while performing with a Javanese gamelan ensemble, as well as his time spent building and modifying electronic audio equipment for studios and fellow musicians. Gravitating towards improvisation and experimentation, Slepian built a breathtaking sound-world that stretched the briefest of moments into an eternity of detail and depth. In 1980, Slepian self-released a series of cassette albums that built upon and perfected this practice, offering “New Music for Digital Orchestra”.
New Dawn is one of those albums - an enthralling example of New Age euphoria, and early-electronic experimentation.
New Music For Digital Orchestra? An ironic subtitle for an album without any traces of digital technology found within. The instruments, tools, and recording techniques are entirely analog. A Korg PS3100, Mellotron voices, Mellotron flutes, analog tape echo and analog recorder were used to create both of the pieces found on New Dawn with both tracks being recorded live with no overdubs.
Daniel Hecht - Guitar
Daniel Hecht
LP | 1973 | CA | Reissue (Morning Trip)

Release:1973 / CA – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Preorder available from 18.12.2020
There are few instruments more uniquely suited to capturing the beauty and ennui of the rural American midwest than the acoustic steel-string guitar. In the hands of a master, the range of evocable emotion and experience is truly limitless. Daniel Hecht is one such master. His 1973 self-released debut album, simply titled Guitar, is an indispensable piece of the endless puzzle that is instrumental Guitar Soli music. Guitar was written and recorded while Hecht was living and working on a commune in Madison, Wisconsin. In between harvesting his own food and studying the music of Andrés Segovia and Mississippi John Hurt, Hecht found himself playing host to legendary itinerant street performer, Moondog. On Moondog’s insistent urging, Daniel decided to record some of his recent guitar compositions. Released on his own Dragon’s Egg imprint, Guitar fused Hecht’s complex classical preoccupations with his country folk influences. The album eventually found a fan with guitar godhead, John Fahey, who eventually helped land Hecht on the eminent new age/ instrumental label, Windham Hill. As Hecht’s playing and composition grew in complexity, he found peership with labelmates like Michael Hedges, William Ackerman, and Alex DeGrassi. But it is his debut album that remains the greatest document of Hecht’s talent and ambition in first bloom. A rolling, blissful trip through rural America, guided by the ambitious hand of a guitar master. Morning Trip is elated to release this gorgeous and seminal document of acoustic exploration on vinyl for the first time since its initial 1973 offering.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Preorder available from 08.01.2021
The Title Of Guitarist Barry Cleveland's 1986 Album "Stones Of Precious Water" Conjures Images Of Incandescent Gems, Harvested From Hallowed Streams And Held Aloft To Glimmer And Catch The Light In Their Many Facets. And Perhaps This Is The Truest Analogue For The Music Contained Therein. Recorded Between 1981 And 1983, In Mostly Improvised Recording Sessions, The Disparate Nature Of Stones' Creation Is Alluded To Only By The Breadth And Variety Of Sounds It Encompasses. Stones Of Precious Water Is A Revelatory Collection That Maps Its Way Through Textural Fourthworld Ambience, Shimmering New Age, Gently Propulsive Kosmiche, And Jazzinflected Prog. These Sounds Are Sewn Together With A Deftness Of Performance And Sonic Character Which Reveals Them As Branches Of The Same Tree, Or Perhaps More Appropriately, A Handful Of Glittering Stones. Six Of The Ten Tracks Contain Contributions From Kat Epple And Her Late Husband Bob Stohl (A.K.A The Epoch-Defining New Age Duo, Emerald Web), Adding Flute, Synthesizers, And Bells. Between The Years Of 1981 And 1983, Cleveland Worked With This Duo And Alone, Allowing Serendipity To Play A Significant Creative Role In Their Music. Many Of The Pieces Began As Improvisations, Or Simple Structures That Served As Springboards For Deeper Exploration. Making His First Forays Into Multi-Track Recording, Cleveland Used A Basic Teac 4-Track Cassette Recorder, And This Rudimentary Piece Of Equipment Proved To Be A Useful Tool For Compositional Exploration. By Flipping And Reversing The Tape, Slowing The Pitch, And Altering And Layering Different Performances, Cleveland Stretched The Sound Of His Guitar Across The Expanse Of The Tonal Canvas. Stones Of Precious Water Stands As A Remarkable Document Of Experimental Selfrecording, Improvisational Collaboration, And Restless Creative Expression. Morning Trip Is Exceedingly Happy To Release It On Vinyl Lp For The First Time.

The title of guitarist Barry Cleveland’s 1986 album - Stones of Precious Water - conjures images of incandescent gems, harvested from hallowed streams and held aloft to glimmer and catch the light in their many facets. And perhaps this is the truest analogue for the music contained therein. Recorded between 1981 and 1983, in mostly improvised recording sessions, the disparate nature of Stones’ creation is alluded to only by the breadth and variety of sounds it encompasses. Stones of Precious Water is a revelatory collection that maps its way through textural fourthworld ambience, shimmering New Age, gently propulsive kosmiche, and jazzinflected prog. These sounds are sewn together with a deftness of performance and sonic character which reveals them as branches of the same tree, or perhaps more appropriately, a handful of glittering stones. Six of the ten tracks contain contributions from Kat Epple and her late husband Bob Stohl (a.k.a the epoch-defining New Age duo, Emerald Web), adding flute, synthesizers, and bells. Between the years of 1981 and 1983, Cleveland worked with this duo and alone, allowing serendipity to play a significant creative role in their music. Many of the pieces began as improvisations, or simple structures that served as springboards for deeper exploration. Making his first forays into multi-track recording, Cleveland used a basic Teac 4-track cassette recorder, and this rudimentary piece of equipment proved to be a useful tool for compositional exploration. By flipping and reversing the tape, slowing the pitch, and altering and layering different performances, Cleveland stretched the sound of his guitar across the expanse of the tonal canvas. Stones of Precious Water stands as a remarkable document of experimental selfrecording, improvisational collaboration, and restless creative expression. Morning Trip is exceedingly happy to release it on Vinyl LP for the first time.
William Eaton - Music By William Eaton
William Eaton
Music By William Eaton
LP | 1978 | US | Reissue (Morning Trip)
23,99 €*
Release:1978 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Originally released in 1978, Music By William Eaton is a private-press album from the accomplished experimental stringed instrument builder. The atmospheric recording techniques, mixed with a hint of Fahey/Takoma-lineage make for a listening experience akin to the mountainscape drawing represented on the album cover. The experience may seem simple at first, but like any great trip in nature, new details consistently reveal themselves upon each listen.
“When I started building instruments, playing guitar took on a whole new dimension. From the conception to the birth of each instrument, new layers of meaning unfolded. Cycles, connections and interdependencies became apparent as I contemplated the growth of trees from seed to old age, and the transformation from raw wood to the building of a musical instrument. I sought out quiet natural environments to play and listen to the “voice” of my 6 string, 12 string, 26 string (Elesion Harmonium) and double neck quadraphonic electric guitar. Deep canyons contained a beautiful resonant quality and echo. A starlit night with a full moon provided all the reflection and endless space by which to project music into the cosmos. The sound of a bubbling stream and singing birds added a natural symphonic tapestry to a melody or chord pattern. As I perceived it, everything was participating in a serendipitous dance. Everything was part of the music.
During this time, I decided to record an instrumental album of music. The idea was simple; it would be a series of tone poems with no titles or any information attached, only the words ‘Music by William Eaton.’ While some of the songs evolved out of composed chord progressions, most of the songs were played spontaneously, only on the occasion of the recording. These improvised songs haven’t been played since.” -- William Eaton

Karma Moffett - Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without
Karma Moffett
Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without
LP | 1982 | CA | Reissue (Morning Trip)
19,79 €* 21,99 € -10%
Release:1982 / CA – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
Sound has the ability to heal. This is the primary tenet that has been driving Karma Moffett for over 35 years. Pure tones, resonant harmonics, the sounds of the earth. At the dawn of the 80’s, as the burgeoning movement of privately-issued New Age was taking hold, Karma Moffett was a pioneer. Eschewing the use of synthesizers and other increasingly-available electronic technology, Karma crafted his meditative, introspective music using ancient instruments. Primarily utilizing Tibetan Bells, and Singing Bowls, Karma Moffett crafted sounds that led the listener on an inward journey.
1982’s Sitting Still Within/Sitting Still Without s Karma Moffett’s earliest triumph. Combining the aforementioned Tibetan Bowls & Bells along with naturalistic field recordings, Karma’s first album is a testament to the power of minimalism and repetition. An ambient voyage that truly draws the listener inwardst, and outwards, Sitting Still Within/ Sitting Still Without is music for healing.
