Human Bell: Ephaphatha (Be Opened)

The music of Human Bell has been categorized as post-rock, experimental rock, and even new age. This of course, puts their music in the same room as Miles' rock-oriented experiments. You know the ones that the jazz purists rolled their eyes at. "Ephaphatha" is an Aramaic expression meaning "to be opened as a portal." The idea is to be open to all things, to allow your ears to be receptive to this particular conversation. One guitar repeats a chord progression and the other sings and howls above it. It's a spooky and entrancing environment. If Miles had come up with this, us non-eyerollers would have been all over it.
