Junkyard Shaman is a project of Finnish sound and visual artist Jere Kilpinen, currently located in Japan. On his own words about the album:
“The final part of a trilogy of albums that started with Flesh Hole and Dada Bones, Lost Mind is a collection of broken word poetry, scrap metal sounds, fragments of field recordings and gagaku instruments. The idea of these albums was to simulate my consciousness collaged as sound, with ill remembered memories mixing up with vanishing dreams and subconscious hallucinations. On this last one I also wanted to bring in the approach of breaking down the architecture of language and therefore the consciousness and mind itself.”
