about

A few tales, moments, images of distant worlds...

The first half of the album ventures into the far Orient, its past and present, contemplating the imagery of intimate Eastern ceremonies, cities, monasteries...
The second part immerses itself in the world of medieval bards, battles, the Dark Ages and enlightenment...

All tracks combine the characteristic 'sound' of these worlds with electronics, sounds of rare medieval and ethnic instruments being used in conjunction with synthesized atmospheres.

“It takes rare imagination to blend eminently electronic music with the recognisable style and flavours of 14th century early music and gripping Far-Eastern harmonies - but these tracks do just that.” (Arad FM, 2002)
