Default "For the First of June"

In April 2015, a Daheshist sister brought me an old cassette tape that Doctor Dahesh had sent to her family in the summer of 1977.

On that old recording, one could hear the voice of Ms.
Zeina Haddad, daughter of Mrs. Marie Haddad, softly delivering an epic poem she had written on May 9, 1977, in French, in honor of Doctor Dahesh's birthday, which was recorded on June 1, 1977.

Her words and signature imagery inspired me to compose "The Dream of Dahesh," which acts as the backdrop for her delicate voice.

However, due to the age of the recording, plenty of audio restoration was required. And because it was impossible to completely suppress the background noise, I decided to create the illusion of a waterfall right at the beginning, hopefully resulting in a seamless, albeit less-than-perfect solution.

I hope you enjoy this presentation.
