The EP is influenced by the Tibetan Book of the Dead, or the Bardo Thodol, which roughly translates to "liberation through hearing." One can be liberated at the moment of ego death by simply hearing or even remembering the instructions of the Bardo Thodol. The goal was to successfully embed the powers of the text into my music. Track 1 corresponds to the first bardo: The Clear Light. Tracks 2 and 3 correspond to two different peaceful visions that may occur within the second bardo. Track 4 represents the re-entry period of the third bardo.
