Soldier & Lair are co-founders of the Thai Elephant Conservation Center in Lampang, Thailand, and they present the first example of non-human animals creating their own compositions on musical instruments. Starting with the knowledge that elephants enjoy listening to music, they used marimbas, a Theremin, xylophones, gongs, drums & other instruments, and trained the elephants in performance techniques. The compositions are unedited & exactly as the elephants wrote them. The most interesting & strange sound on the album comes from an elephant blowing a harmonica through its trunk.
