Djinn Djinn

Give your ears a taste:

Lyrics By: Mickey Hart

Sweet scented jewels, of my land, where hidden treasures flow 
From invisible hands, that touch the stones, only spirits know 
Seven drinkers of the wind, gather round the fire 
The sun beats down, upon the sand and fills our hearts desire

Inside my golden tent, tethered horses by my door 
Tell me long lost stories, eat my bread and want no more 
From your sweet tongue, heart of gold, the spirits find us here 
With beauty beyond words I know, that paradise is near

In the shadow of the sun, when the water runs dry 
The whole world dances and the desert cries 
The whole world dances and the desert cries 
Djinn, djinn, djinn djinn
Djinn, djinn, djinn djinn

The earth is rusty red, the weathered rocks as white as bones 
The truth of men, from ancient time, still sits on golden thrones 
Hot dry days and long, long nights beneath the crescent moon 
The weeping desert wind will wash our sorrows from these dunes

Smile on us oh Sultan king, shine on us like the sun 
Tie our hearts together so the two can beat as one 
In a distant land, only desert flowers grow 
Two jackals made of stone so that together they will know

In the shadow of the sun, when the water runs dry 
The whole world dances and the desert cries 
The whole world dances and the desert cries 
Djinn, djinn, djinn djinn
Djinn, djinn, djinn djinn

In the shadow of the sun, when the water runs dry 
The whole world dances and the desert cries 
The whole world dances and the desert cries 
Djinn, djinn, djinn djinn
Djinn, djinn, djinn djinn

Sounds of the Universe

The desert winds of Djinn Djinn include sounds derived from the ripples that would result in space-time from collisions of black holes. These gravitational waves were the last piece of Einstein’s theories to be observed — the breakthrough came on September 14, 2015, when the LIGO telescope gave evidence of space-time disturbances from a massive collision of ultra-dense objects in deep space. For years, cosmologists have theorized about the nature of the gravitational waves that would result from black hole collisions, supernovae, and other large-scale events that would produce enough gravitational disturbance that they could be detected.

The data used in this track was slowed down, so that the ripple pattern could be heard in slow motion. It was applied to an instrument that was meant to sound like space stretching. The data points affected its pitch, timbre, and stereo position of the sound to create a rhythmic throbbing.

This track also has at least one of the sound arcs that make sound from the l-nu diagram describing seismic nodes of the sun (described in Heartbeat of the Sun).
