1. Start Out
The first of two CD releases by Zig of compositions he wrote originally on piano, which over time evolved into these definitive arrangements for synthesizer and, on several occasions, including small band accompaniment. The bands 'Illuminous Exodus' and 'i.e' often included "Start Out" and "Not Raining" as regular additions to their repertoire throughout their history. The liner notes themselves allude to ideas proposed by Lao Tsu, René Descartes, Aldous Huxley, Aaron Copland, Charlie Parker, Viktor Frankl, and Vedic sources in general. Casual observers in the past have thus wrongly inferred a new age ambient sound to this album, whereas the album itself more firmly represents the Progressive (mostly electronic symphonic, but often hard) Rock category.
