Frank Rothkamm [ Mystery of the Leaping Fish ]

It is a historical fact that in 1967 Australian Prime Minister Holt dived into the ocean off a beach near Melbourne and vanished without a trace.

It has been speculated that he did not drown but was initiated into the Grand Lodge Of The Deep while under water. It is said that this legendary Lodge still presides in an underwater geodesic dome, occasionally mistaken for Atlantis. Although not much is known about the Lodge's rites, communication took place that enabled me to receive the recordings found on this disc.

The Mystery of the Leaping Fish dates back far in time, before, one is inclined to say, there was time at all. I have therefore faithfully mastered these sound manifestations to the standards set in the Mmakthor Alchemie.

It is clear while listening that much remains unexplained. Here I can only testify to the authentic ritual nature of these recordings, drawn from personal experience about secrets revealed to me recently.
