The written music manifested itself as I grappled with subterranean dream imagery, hallucinations and liminal afternoon reveries, often brought on by insomnia and sleep deprivation. It ponders the anima & animus - male and female archetypal images.

          Conveying states
between        the world of dreams          and wakefulness...
               Embraces
   an umwelt of liminal states          .....  both cerebral and
meditative
     the aesthetics of disorientation, ambiguity
               ....                             illusion?

                            aspects of South Indian classical music ..      ..
... . .
   its rhythm through patterns of            recession
    and growth        ..                   polyrhythm ,
                                   extended time cycles        ... .         
refigured in

Reviews:

"This is an exciting record, which takes both classical music and jazz into other and new areas."
- Jan Granlie, Salt Peanuts

“A certain orientalism, if we can say so, emanates from the well-crafted music presented by the group. The Balinese gongs played by Seibaek or the janggu, by Kadereit are not mere exoticisms, they reveal elements that help take the music to new borders.”

“The album has a dreamlike aura, with a development of varied tensions and harmonic relationship that at times are numbing and suffocating. Winds, keyboards and percussion working as intertwined ensemble pairs deliver densely expressive music.”
- Fabricio Vieira, FreeFormJazz

"Very Exciting (...) Reminiscent of very original, oppressive film music"
- Ken Vos, Jazzism
