“At Temple Gate” immerses you in a kind of shamanism of which the echo has long since been lost. It is an interstitial album which marries a modal ancestrality with the power of electronic soundscapes, revealing a duality, an incantation at the threshold of death. The Sound is what immediately strikes the listener, even before the Logos, the word, the music itself: “at Temple Gate” is an experience a kind of sonic ritual.
It is not the dead, these deities, who are terrifying, but the living and their ever more ardent desires to communicate with those whose bodies have spread throughout the cosmos into a billion particles of stardust; where we come from and where we end up, ashes to dust. “At Temple Gate” is evocative of all of this: the bait of Time, Cruelty, the bite of Sound.

I know of no other musician alive today who makes the listener feel like s/he's standing in front of something too old to be eternal. Record after record, Eyvind Kang has been building a singular body of work that revolves around precisely that experience. Ajaeng Ajaeng is beautifully recorded and is best appreciated as a deep listening experience; I've been playing it whilst alone in my evening walks. Kang's will reward your patience like very little music ever will. Cosmographer
