The Taj is the ultimate symbol of love because it presents an undiluted and unromantic idea. It consumes a visitor with as much melancholy as it does awe. The beauty is as striking as the morose thought that it holds the mortal remains of two lovers. Finally, it represents as much regalia and excess as it does the void, the absence of “the other” and emptiness.
This track is a homage to that archetypal symbol and a sonic meditative ode to that which we each love.
