Ordinary, immortal, Malay boy – Space Gambus Experiment.
By Yusuf Martin

From the first sound to the final chord the track - Ordinary, immortal, Malay boy by Space Gambus Experiment - like love, elevates us.

Space Gambus Experiment’s latest offering is almost transcendental in its all encompassing beauty and natural complexity. It is serene. It lifts our hearts, if not our souls, to a much higher and simply breathtaking plane.

Throughout Ordinary, immortal, Malay boy we are treated to a hauntingly evocative piece calling to the spirit of a new age, or is that newer age. The delicate harmonies and gentle musical collaboration easily unfolds its magic and mysteries to our enraptured ears, creating five minutes and twenty-one seconds of surprising beauty. That it is a confluence of East and West there is little doubt, but what a confluence – melding, the bringing together of ethereal harmonics dripping with light and the wonders of the universe, it truly is ‘far out man’, way out beyond the dross served up to us on a regular basis via radio and TV.

Kamal Sabran and Space Gambus Experiment have done it yet again – produced a track which seems near perfect from beginning to crackly end. The music draws you, enchants you and never fails to amaze right up to the final seconds with gamelan and oud. The vinyl crackling at the conclusion is sheer genius, and transported this ageing hippy back to his prime. It’s probably best listened to in the dark - waving a cigarette lighter with one arm.

-- Yusuf wrote a regular humour column for a Malaysian magazine, and now freelances in arts and culture articles. Yusuf has had many short stories and poems published in many formats around the world, and has written two yet to be published novels and a autobiotravellogue about Malaysia. He is founder and editor of Dusun - a Malaysian Arts and Culture e-magazine and runs Northern Writers – a venue for writers to read to appreciative audiences, in north Malaysia.
