Ta Te Ching

"The way that can be walked is not the way"

 

The nature of this classic Chinese text is very minimal, abstract and mystical in its original form; much of this essence is lost in translation, often veering towards 'nonsense'.

The sources from the Sound Archive for this piece include an audio book recording of Tao Te Ching (ICA0028457), performed by a man and a woman, and a collection of various transcriptions of early translations of the Tao Te Ching in English (1CD0220901).
