Expo 70 is the cosmic exploration of Kansas City based artist Justin Wright. While the project is quite prolific, Resurrection (Heavy Meditation) is an exercise in conceptual based improvised guitar — built off two sides of low-frequency drones much in the style of Earth 2 and similar conceptually to the work of William Basinski.
As the listening instructions in the flap of this release state, “In approaching this album for listening, for an over-all experience, one must let go of all inner thoughts of rhythm and song structure. This music will teleport you out of your daily life.. it is meant for escape.” While the Expo 70 discography is extensive,Resurrection (Heavy Meditation) is a brand new concept for Justin Wright, and will appeal to diehards and outsiders alike.

If you recover from the party and decide to change your life through meditation, look no further than Expo 70’s latest cassette, Resurrection (Heavy Meditation), released on Electric Temple. Expo 70 is the baby of Kansas City’s Justin Wright. Wright’s Expo 70 output is largely improvised psychedelic drone. I always imagine this is what a merging of Sunn 0))) and Hawkwind might sound like. Resurrection consists of two sides of heavy meditative drone looped and looped and looped….. repeat until sleepy. It’s fantastic if you’re looking for meditation music. It’s repetitious and trance-inducing. I really enjoy Expo 70 but this one was a bit much for me. One side and I would have been happy, two sides was pushing it. The good news is Expo 70 is extremely prolific, so check out this tape is you like the drone, also, I recommend the Center of the Earth and Sonic Messenger LPs.
