In this tripple cd, Eloy invite us into a long mystical work, perhaps more mystical than others and in a Japanese world. Indeed, it is surrounded by singers and musicians of Gagaku in maintaining the universe, the sounds, but without the clichés. If the voices are not processed, in oposite the sho (Japanese mouth organ widely used by Cage) is multiplied and expanded disproportionately to end up looking like nothing so much as the church organ. East-West translation beautifully successful.
