In the first track, the introspective but dynamic a short story based on a distant memory, delicate electronica, vertiginous strings and modulated percussions weave together a mesmerising, shimmering and constantly shifting landscape of the mind.
The second track, SUPERSTRUCTURE (the ammunition of the nation), builds up and breaks down a brutal, relentless beat using a battery of programmed percussive instruments, a vocal chorus, heavily-distorted guitars and droned out Mizmars to shake you in deeply physical ways. Both takes are from a live recording of Khan’s sold out 2012 Louvre Concert.
