a delicate silent ambience


1. No vestige of a beginning
2. A spectral presence in the everyday
3. Ghosts that haunt the very deep future
4. Displacement of the divine
5. The intimate and the eternal
6. Deep-time processes
7. No prospect of an end


These pieces were made from two sound sources - old clock chimes and other vintage metal objects, and extinct music from fossilised vinyl. The sounds were transformed by metamorphic and sedimentary processes to evoke the terror and wonder of deep time.

Älläï is the idea of looking yonder, up, over there, or on the bright side. It is the vast, yawning abstraction that engulfs you from any one of those places.

It's also the name of a plastic penguin that our imaginary flute player had as a child. That penguin meant everything. Please consider this whilst you listen.

Bob Murry Shelton
Guitar, myriad effects, a modular synth named "THE FURNACE", Supercollider, sneezings, and brief mutterings

Christian Michael Newman
Voice, extensive mutterings, caffeination, palmas on "Shambal...", pink fuzz on "Crack..."

James Anthony Hogard
Electric bass

Matthew Riley Walsh, Attorney at Law
Electric piano on "Portrait..."

Music composed by Bob
Lyrics to Fold by Christian
Lyrics to House of Strength and Love by Bob & Christian

a splendid experimental ambience from Iran


1. A Cosmic Birth

Birth of a sad beautiful star

2. A Symphony of A Murder

Imagine theater with a murder scene

3. Missing Something That Does Not Exist

We have always missed something we are not aware of what it is.
It is just a weird feeling we deal with, and it's so melancholic.

4. Gray

A song which is like a nostalgia, like an old man remembering good old times

5. Awareness

The very moment of realization of who we really are

6. A Cosmic Death

Death of a beautiful sad star

7. The Passage of Suicide

Fading into nothingness


This album is an expression of decaying feelings which we always deal with as a human being. Feelings like loneliness, emptiness, or suicidal feelings. Let us express it with music, which is a door to freedom and salvation. And remember you are not alone.

I dedicate this album to my amazing mother and my lovely beautiful girlfriend Nafisa, who has always supported me along the way and motivated me in my down times, and also my dear friend Shaheen for collaborating with me on two tracks (1+6), as well as my true friend Komeil Monfared for his amazing art on the album cover.

You can live inside or outside a box. But, meanwhile, everything is happening...

This album was created from an inner and personal perspective, regarding our daily actions and the events that take place around us. While everything is happening, we wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee, listen to some music, or simply stay in silence. This helps us understand that we are a small part of an universal whole; that nothing ever stops and everything happens for a reason, and with no explanation whatsoever.

This also poses two questions: "Where are we?" and "What do we do to make life better?". The album has a quote: "You can live inside or outside a box. But, meanwhile, everything is happening...". This phrase does not mean that we are in a special place, because that is not important. What's relevant is to be aware of our existence and to not forget that every moment is brief and ephemeral.

The titles of the songs are tributes and were specially chosen because the original songs are classics and emblematic. We think that the original artists tried to change the world and make it a better place to live in. In some way, the songs were revolutionary: They speak of love, bravery, freedom and social rights.

John Lennon, George Harrison, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd or David Bowie. They are some of the artists who created the songs from where we got the inspiration for our tracks. We consider these artists to be commited to their music and their art, but we also believe that they shared a message of change and hope.

And meanwhile, while we try to change the world, everything is happening...
