Notes

What then is all the harvest
of this workshop of generation
and corruption ?

Not much.

Bring wine then
for all the world's provisions
don't amount

to much.

Five days or so
you rest here: rest well,
my friend. Your stay

is short.

We wait on the lip
of the Sea of Nothing. () Saki,
one cup ! What space between the lip and mouth ?

Hafez (fourteenth century)

1st & last track sample This Earth That You Walk Upon by Simple Minds. So that's cool.

In the 14th Century, an explorer named Hafez crossed the deserts from Persia. He transcribed his journey into poetry. Some sounds are so powerful they appear to destroy Time itself. Listening to this you might just as well be crossing the desert at night, cold beneath the stars; at noon, the dust and dry crackling static air resonating with the noise of migrating crickets; at dusk, the final golden beams of sunlight, scattering desert mirages before your eyes. In a sense, every journey is a return to travelled paths, a movement closer to home. This sublime collaboration between ambient maestro Dr. Atmo and the secretive Ramin brings a resonant harvest of electronic noise, a cultural collision between digital atmospherics and a proliferation of Islamic instruments. This disc travels. It opens with some beautifully sorrowful wailing voices before drifting into brittle oceans of poignant ambience. By the end, you begin to sense a little of the humanity and eternity that poetic nomads must have felt long ago, before an industrial tribe on the edge of apocalypse needed electronic music to teach them how to listen to natural sounds and accept the noumenal.

The last track is obviously meant to be titled "Treasury", an allusion to the Persian Treasury, repeatedly captured by Alexander the Great, the Romans, and others.
