Notes

Karmic Hit says: "Timeless. Masterpiece. Two words which simply and directly sum up listening to Isidore. A trans-continental, musical correspondence which defies description. Challenging, immediete, classic, stunning - a resounding triumph of beauty; ingeniously transfixing energies in time like a musical hologram, a rainbow after the storm. Music of and from the spheres."

A limited "Matt" edition of 500 was sold through Karmic Hit. No indication what "Matt" means (matte cover, perhaps?).

* "Iris Doe" is an anagram of "Isidore."

Notes

These were originally released in conjunction with the Karmic Hit 10th Anniversary shows (Feb. 27, 2003 at The Roma Room in Sydney, and March 6, 2003 at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne). The first two hundred ticket buyers for each show received the CD free. In April, 2003, this CD was offered free to the first 100 Karmic Hit mailing list subscribers who placed an order with them (either by email or through their online Mall of Convenience).
