Unalome Two 19:31


The album Unalome centres upon a Thai Lanna Buddhist Sak Yant ritual that took place on 11th January 2020 in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

It focuses on my initiation by Ajarn Daeng under the spiritual guidance of Ajarn Suea of the application of a Soisangwan chest tattoo, which is a part of the photographic cover design featured on this album.

The download of this album contains a four page photographic PDF booklet and accompanying essay by Sheer Zed outling the events of this ritual.

"With Unalome, Sheer Zed has made a work that is complex, beautiful and intelligent. It works on a multitude of levels and is both abstract yet emotionally direct. It is an important work that deserves many ears and it is anything but easy." - At The Barrier (atthebarrier.com/2021/02/09/sheer-zed-unalome-album-review/)
