More Info

"Originally released in 1979, Wakhevitch's last album before definitely settling down in Auroville (India) was his most meditative and relaxed effort to date. Fruit of his 1978 stay in Israel invited by the "Mishkenot Shaananim" Foundation, the album was again completely dominated by the composer's keyboards - hypnotic, majestic, enchanting and delicate: from the sweeping synths and fractured vocal loops of the title track to the fragility of Taddy's Fruit Garden, the lyrical spaciness of Eriador or the otherwordly impressionism of Taddy's Dream: Ramallah's Road. A masterful closing statement by this french master and a must for anyone into meditative keyboard music in the vein of Terry Riley, Deuter, JD Emmanuel or Peter Michael Hamel, to name a few. Strictly limited to 500 copies. Single cover reproducing the original 1979 artwork - includes insert with liner notes." [label info]
