Dream Weapons present: EASTERN EMBROIDERIES C120



 Eastern Embroideries c120

Ever since my childhood I've had an affinity for a certain timbre that could mainly be found in the music from behind the Iron Curtain and in the regions of the former Sovietunion. Politics and troublesome history aside, wether it was armenian tetrachords, persian shashmaqam-modes from the central asian regions, klezmer, balkan or gypsy tunes– somehow it always reminded me of fairy tales.

I compiled 120 minutes in two parts or 2 x c60. If these parts were character types or beings Out of the Village would be the extrovert and Into the Forest the introvert. But music and emotions are more complex than that so you'll find melancholy and joy simultaneously in both the village and the forest.

- Moahaha
