ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is He Xuntian’s First Music Composition for the Preconscious

Music from dreams. . .
Music from the place called “ehe”. . .
Thunder, lightning, wind, rain, cattle, sheep, birds, bees,
men humming and women singing from the ehe dreamland. . .
Spirituality and creativity from the purest emptiness. . .

One day in a dream
I was floating above an endlessly undulating valley
When I came near to a mountain peak
I encountered a heavenly sound

It was a sound from beyond the sky
Like nothing I had heard in this life

Through layers of light, he shined gloriously on me like light
Supreme, most beautiful, most pure…

In an instant
I merged into it
I already couldn’t distinguish independent light, independent sound, an independent self
I was in the ultimate state

In response to the dream
Every August 32nd
(A day that does not exist for some species)
In the early hours of the morning
32 chanters gather to chant in harmony

Each positioned on a side
Different in all respects
Chanting in the sky
The light colorful and the clouds fragrant

Chanting a total of 832 lines
Its name was simply “Ehe Chant”

It’s only a memory of a memory
The lost part I can only search for in my dreams someday
