Duff Egan Wow, wow, wow.. I love this record more than almost anything!!! A true masterpiece of mystical reflective ambient sonics and I'm so grateful to Klaus and Tomas for helping it to live on for me and other listeners. Some records are fun, some are mysterious, some are peaceful; then there is occasionally a transcendent record that helps you feel connected to the eternal within and this is perhaps the best example of that i've ever heard. Love love love, thank you! God bless Klaus Wiese!!

Arc 002

The second Arc release "Maquam" is a magnum opus in the world of deep Ambient Music. The album includes 3 very long tracks, offering hypnotic expanding soundscapes and subtle rhythms leading to a mental Trance state. "Maquam" works perfectly in repeat mode for slow movement, meditation and sleep purposes. With the new re-mastered version, it´s now possible to run the album at very low volumes with the music still filling the room. Because of some special spatial treatments used in the mastering, it´s even possible to capture the content by listening from other rooms, without the necessity of raising the volume heavily (for example, for more indirect listening experiences while concentrating, working or falling asleep).

Maquam, translating to "stations" in Arabic, is a term that references the various stages a Sufi's soul must attain in its search for God. The stations are derived from the most routine considerations a Sufi must deal with on a day-to-day basis and is essentially an embodiment of mystical knowledge
