In "Shwas-uchhashwas", the first track, I have taken the mythological/ religions point of view, envisaging the creation, with chaos, and the gods bringing point of view, envisaging the creation, with chaos, and the gods bringing an order to what they had wrought. But one of the first disciplines is breath, that breath which creates an airy vacuum between things, providing each with its own individual orbit, or what we would call space. Thus the concept of shwas-uchhashwas, the in-and out-breath, and the space in between, which is the existence of the universe. In "Shwas-uchhashwas" I have dealt with space around us as well as the space within, it reminds us of where we came from. But, expressed through Raga Lalit, there is a sense of beginning, of the dawning of the first day; and the melodic tones ni-sa-re of the Vedic chant used for the shlokas are present in Lalit as well.
Having explored the space above, I have explored the space below: water and the space within that atmosphere, the images created and the whole different world that it offers. Space underwater is gigantic, beautiful; there are grottos, valleys, yet the depths have a sinister quality. I have tried to convey simply, minimally, a journey through this adventure zone in "Deep Space". Brahmand, the Cosmos, is also the final frontier, and the last and longest tracks on this album. It's a concept in sound of the solar system, the cosmos, the planets. Each of these celestial bodies- the sun, Jupiter, Mercury- is identified by a sound, raw at first, which recurs at intervals, as we are following their orbit. As they start to learn their place, their discipline, they are represented by drums. Earth and Venus take the form of a male and female voice respectively. Then we have the modern aspect of space, rockets, and telecommunications and so on. But we go beyond space, our space, into the Miky Way, an exploration of mystery, of infinity and yet another dimension.
