This is a piece I wrote for The Scent of Light. Since it soon became clear that I had more music than would fit on a CD I didn’t end up finishing this one. The title is Two Sisters: Hope + Sorrow, and I wrote it with Rahim’s Iraq in mind. In fact I was going to ask him to play an oud solo after the bass solo, and then I would have recorded a guitar solo after that. This is a rough mix of an unfinished recording, but you will recognize the beginning, which we have played as an introduction to Duende del Amor (from Solo Para Ti) for a few years now.

    Unreleased stuff from the Scent of Light! I had no idea there were other tracks lying around. That’s quite possibly my favorite OL album – can’t wait to have a listen :) Are there any others that didn’t make the final cut? We can be patient (if we *have to*) but it would be nice to know if there’s anything more to look forward to :)

    Meanwhile I have an OL-Friends playlist on at the moment (coincidentally) as I sit out here reading up on galaxy formation so I’ll stick this at the end… very good music for studying the stars ;)

    Oh! You’re right – you’ve been playing the beginning of this for years :)

    It’s great – even familiar melodies like this take on a sort of new life with the way you produced this album. The textures are incredible.

    The bulería in the middle is similar to the one you’ve been playing for a while but it’s REALLY aggressive here! I like it ;)

    Oooooh yeah. My day just got better.

    This makes my day-week-month. Oud would be quite nice, but its excellent without it!

    One to play over and over and over. and maybe someday you’ll have Rahim add his part and all the rest you had in mind….not that it could be any better but I just don’t want it to stop.

    Meteors Moment + Magnificent Music = Monday’s Music – what a shower of entertainment! Thanks!

    Really, really nice. August 12 is a good day :-)

    I hope you will be able to “finish” it one day. Adding Rahim’s oud would be great!

    Thanks a lot!

    Yeah – it’s really rou…gh. :-)))
    It’s a pity that you didn’t finish it.
