i really love Pete Namlook's work and what really needs to be said is,
he 'sampled' big parts of 'Arc Descents' from The Harmonic Choir / David Hykes - Hearing Solar Winds (À L'Ecoute Des Vents Solaires) which on itself is a gorgeous listen.

I would like to agree with all the good things said about this album. It's one of my most treasured and vital records in my collection. Sometimes uplifting, sometimes scary and often just completely breathtakingly beautiful. Without exaggeration, for me its a piece of genius. No ambient collection is complete without it. Beg steal or borrow a copy if you haven't heard it. Iconic classic.

Air II is deeply psychedelic. An eleven-part "trip" subtitled "Traveling Without Moving", it takes the thematic from Frank Herbert's cult sci-fi novel and movie Dune - The Spice Planet. Herbert's story posited a strange universe dependant on a life-extending, mind-altering spice drug. On Air II Namlook subtly draws on the story's themes to create a beautiful, creepy, intoxicating universe of his own. Again he utilizes acoustic instruments like didgeridoo, sighing woodwinds, rainmakers, a flamenco guitar and Mid-Eastern flutes, and hypnotizing vocal textures that rise and fall to striking effect of the sound scheme. This CD is one of my alltime favs of Pete´s Fax label.
