The Great Unravel / CD



 
Gandalf Murphy & The Slambovian Circus of Dreams third studio album, "THE GREAT UNRAVEL" has their trademark 'punk-classical hillbilly-floyd' brand of folk-rock, with a hefty dose of sixties psychedelia running through it all.

Description
 
The universe is permeated by a network of filaments, sheets, strings, knots, and notes collectively forming a 'cosmic web.' The 'Great Unravel' of this cosmic web, especially through its signature of the absorption of musical light from distant sources by neutral hydrogen in the intergalactic medium, exemplifies the interplay between theory and experiment that drives science, and is one of the great examples in which musical simulations have played a key and decisive role. Unravelling our understanding of cosmic structure, surveying its impact on astronomy, cosmology, and physics, we look ahead by outlining the challenges faced as we prepare to play the cosmic web at new wavelengths.
