In 2014 Bedouin Records, run by Salem Rashid and based in UAE at the time, invited Eomac to produce an EP for the label. In conversations between Salem and Ian (Eomac) it was decided that the most interesting way to pursue this was for Salem to send music from across the Arabic and Islamic worlds for Ian to sample and use as a palette of sounds to create new electronic and club tracks.
Finally, five years later, this second collection of tracks – all made in those same sessions in 2014/15 with the samples that Salem sent – is now released to the world as ‘Bedouin Trax II’.
The original ‘Bedouin Trax’ album is available on Bedouin Records.

Park Jiha – The Gleam
Is it that we revel in the soft wonder of a sunrise or the majesty of a glorious sunset, but all through the day its quality and texture is continually changing, second by second, in ways we rarely register?

Also sprach Zarathustra (Experimental Cat Version) by Remo De Vico.
A cat organ or cat piano is a hypothetical musical instrument which consists of a line of cats fixed in place with their tails stretched out underneath a keyboard so that they cry out when a key is pressed. The cats would be arranged according to the natural tone of their voices.
This instrument was described by the French writer Jean-Baptiste Weckerlin in his book Musiciana, extraits d’ouvrages rares ou bizarres.
The instrument was first described by Athanasius Kircher in his 1650 work Musurgia Universalis.
I imagined a version of Also sprach Zarathustra played with the help of this instrument.
Also this piece is about a dystopian society of cats when they probably find a strange monolith.
