a while ago, on a college music station, i heard a piece of tibetan ritual music. besides the low throaty "ohm" vocals, there was this high pitched dissonant flute/horn instrument. it sounded like many of them playing at once. it's a very eerie sound. does B know the name of this instrument? Doing some research, i came across what is called a Dung-Dkar(White Conch), but i dont think this is the particular instrument i'm refering too.

also, could B recommend a good/favorite tibetan ritual music album?

Upps, I am not B :)
But I think the instrument is called a Kangling or maybe a Gyangling.
Here ist a link to a page on witch you can hear those instruments.

ah, i just came across an article refering to a human thigh bone trumpet, aka kangling. i believe that's what i'm thinking of. i suddenly have this intense urge to listen to this music.

I missed this post earlier.
I have a human thighbone, a proper one as opposed to the common ornate fake ones for tourists. It's on most (but not all) albums from Heresy onwards.

I have two of them - both around 150-200 years old and made of human bone. I have to stop myself using them on everything - I've loved the sound since I first heard it.

I'd really like to know if it is an actual instrument or an amalgamation of instrument and manipulation or just completely manufactured. The sound of it is so amazing.

I like and recommend pretty much everything with tibetan singing bowls or meditation bells. Some of them are crafted from meteors.

even though this specific human thigh bone trumpet is not on the "other"-recording: i once heard it while falling asleep and it put me in some weird places (it was almost two years ago but i read this thread here now); what was really weird about that place was:
though i`ve never been there it "felt" like somewhere in the mountains in asia AND (the weirdest part of that lustmord-influenced dreamstate) there where what seemed to be nomadic tents but instead of wooden or metallic plugs for holding those tends it was hold by human bones (maybe thighbones) O_O weird, isn`t it???

it really freaked me out when i read here that thigh bone is an actual instrument coming from that specifi geographical area AND was used by B on almost all of his records (as he wrote here)...
well...what to say? could it be possible that some DNA-memory within knows subconsciously what a thighbone sounds like? was i wandering through a holographic organism? are these the places that only exist when listening to the music?
anyway i found it an interesting effect and as i said it really freaked me out when i read about this (maybe causal) connection :)
