"Soundscapes in the mist" is an opening to the auditory world of bells, a world of hammering, reverberation, and the resonance of metal. Using different sorts of bells and chimes was very common in the history of Western music as well as the Iranian auditory culture. However, this music has less to do with the tradition of pitch-perfect orchestral bells, which was at the foremost of Western composer's attention or was common in many other musical cultures. Instead, the conceptual framework of this music is formed around the auditory world of small imperfect bells, and this imperfection is the focal point of its auditory atmosphere.
The album is named after a movie by Theo Angelopoulos entitled "Landscape in the Mist."
