I like that there are moments where the synth melodies really work perfectly and then parts where they clash.

Bettina told me once of the license Florian gave to some people from Eastern Europe for releasing several Popol Vuh titles. Recently I found evidence for this. In 1996 Andrzej and Mira Boryna (Boryna Foundation) had a personal meeting in Munich with Florian Fricke. During that meeting they got from him a licence for several titles on their Ananda Music label. Above mentioned albums – and maybe more? - were released on cassette. The Boryna Foundation is a organization dedicated to spreading the idea of using music as a tool for healing, therapy, supporting education. They consider Florian Fricke is one of their ‘Spiritual Patrons’.
