review by Steve Roach-
This CD is one of those rare releases that is so unique and evocative that it can only be (unfairly) compared to what has come before, to help give a feel for what's in store. Dead can Dance and other 4AD releases, Soul Whirling Somewhere, ECM, non-specific world and Eastern percussion and etheric voices are only part of this ambitious project. Passionately performed 12-string guitar and sitar are also woven into the mystical fabric. Surprisingly no synths or samplers were used, yet you still hear a wash of atmosphere throughout. Steve Roach was invited to do the final mastering, but did not add any processing or additional sounds. This is the kind of music you might hear wafting from deep within a misty overgrown forest as the light wanes into twilight.
sala founded Arundas in 1998 after some years of forest dwelling and wandering here and there .. his experiences during those years would later form the concepts underlying the dreamfulaudisea .. in the north kingdom sala met xu cero (su sero) who became sala's friend and joined Arundas as engineer and producer .. later, after finishing a mass of unedited works, sala related the story of his travels to xu cero and asked that he oversee the editing and publishing of his material .. it wasnt long after that conversation that sala disappeared..that was over two years ago and since then none have seen him..
i would love to play with other devoted souls...
