2000 CD release
This album was recorded during Rich’s studies at Stanford University. Its music is of a slower and more minimal format than most ambient music at that time. With an eighty-six minute running time, it is perhaps the only album to take full advantage of the length of the audio cassette format. The last track on the album is a stormy forty-three minute piece called “Oak Spirit”.
In 1994, the title track, “Sunyata (Emptiness),” was included on the two-disc compilation Trances/Drones. Because of the length restrictions of the compact disc format, when Sunyata was finally released on CD in 2000, this track was omitted.
- "Dervish Dreamtime" – 19:00
