Title inspired by Jose Luis Borges short story. Little to no melodic material, simply cascading downward arpeggiation of a chord I fell in love with because of how it reminded me of Asian scales and, in particular, in a very loose way, the sounds of the koto.
I wanted mystery and a little tension here, as well as the vast sense of space that comes from silence. Also, as with much of the music on The Body Begins, silence was a core instrument here.
Note: the discarded cello track for this became the core of "The Dunes".
