Each track of the Tao cd is inspired by a chapter from the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu (an ancient Chinese spiritual text).
The ten original pieces on this cd cover a range of stylistic treatments and utilize many traditional Asian instrument sounds and compositional techniques fused with various "modern" arrangements.
Complete text of the chapters from the Tao Te Ching corresponding to the 10 tracks on this cd can be found in the Notes section of my Facebook page (see "find me on facebook" link below).
