Both the opening track as well as those entitled Mélodies de... are contemporary creations by Sarikouyoumdjian, including improvisation, and exploring particular musical modes in a quasi-systematic manner. The other tracks are traditional pieces.
Drone playing here is also especially notable for its understated strength & precision.
