Album Notes
As an ancient shamanic instrument, the Jew's Harp continues to be used for healing by the peoples of Mongolia and Siberia. Groundbreaking hypnotist Dr. Franz Mesmer incorporated the instrument into his early psychotherapy experiments. The Jew's Harp's power as a courtship instrument from Bavaria to the Philippines alludes to a potent psychosexual association. Compare the erotic shape of the Jew's Harp to that of the Shiva Lingam, India's sacred spiritual symbol for the Creative Principle.

My Psychedelic Jew's Harp journey begins by marrying the rival demands of singing with simultaneous melodic twanging. This challenging innovation fuses with sophisticated electronics to realize the music of The Psychedelic Jew's Harp.

I create this music live. No multi-tracking, no playback of pre-recorded material, no sampling. The raw signal of voice and Jew's Harp feeds into a portable bank of automated processors. Here, various programmatic, architectonic sound spaces frame rhythmic zones within which certain acoustic potentialities reside. These sonic holograms manifest my musical explorations as shape-shifted sound. Seminal acoustics are gestated into new aural forms to birth multi- dimensional soundscapes of interpenetrating pulses and harmonics.

As many may know, "psychedelic" means mind manifesting. The Psychedelic Jew's Harp project appeared as a vision several years ago and continues to serve my life as a navigator and teacher. My wish would be that this music manifest inspiration in the mind and heart of the listener.

Engaging and entrancing.
The jew's harp is played all over the world, and in this CD Nasim shows the hidden versatility of an often overlooked instrument. He skillfully puts a modern twist onto an ancient sound.

Psychedelic Indeed
Very creative take on jew's harp music. I'd recommend it to fans of ambient "space-out" music. Looses a point because a couple of tracks get slightly repetitive after six minutes or so, but definitely worth purchasing for jew's harp and electronica types.

I love it!... thank you!


I loved it so much I had him play on a CD I produced. http:www.cdbaby.com/goddes
J. M. Nasim has taken the pulsing and vibrating sound of the Jew's harp to a completely new and amazing psychedelic place. His use of electronic processing, intertwined and driven by the Jew's harp and his voice is a euphoric and mind awakening experience. It is a sexy and soulful experience that any mind/space traveler will come to know & love. Considering that this first release was recorded live, with no over-dubs or studio wizardry, I look forward to seeing where these creative pulsations will lead us in the future!!
