A deep-rooted interest in North African traditional music (Tarik's family are from Morocco and Algeria) shapes two of the orchestral works on this album. Raï and Chaâbi are not ethnographic studies but are influenced by Algerian folk music forms.
Latent Manifest is an ingenious expansion of a single gesture from a Bach sonata, magnified to create an entire universe of orchestral colour.
To close the album, Fragments from Heart of Darkness draws on the music from O'Regan's chamber opera Heart of Darkness, based on the novel of the same name by Joseph Conrad.
