Album Notes
I conceived ‘memory and dust’ as a soundtrack to a story set in the mythic East. The title and track names are drawn from my readings of of the Zen poets, who pondered on impermanence in their wilderness retreats.

Each track represents a chapter in the story. Electronic washes are laid down like brushstrokes in an ink painting, creating soundscapes evoking mountains and valleys, deserts and streams. Crashing percussion shatters the air, infused with the traditions of North Africa, India and the Far East.

I enter the soundscapes, spinning intricate melodies which form a narrative thread through the album. I follow the progress of the solitary figure, his face a mask of resolve, his heart full of yearning.

I am k-shan. This is my debut album.
