Notes not on release:
The title A Bao A Qu is taken from The Book Of Imaginary Beings by Jorge Luis Borges and refers to a legendary animal taken from Indian folklore. The A Bao A Qu exists in the Tower Of Victory in the city of Chitor.
Pilgrims climbing the stairwell bring the A Bao A Qu to life and as they continue their ascent, the A Bao A Qu's shape approaches perfection and the blue colour it radiates becomes more intense. If the climber is a person who "has achieved Nirvana and whose acts cast no shadows" then the A Bao A Qu will achieve perfection. According to legend, the A Bao A Qu has only reached the tower's pinnacle once.
