Electronic Music from the Middle Eastern Avant-Garde (1959-2001)

Just discovered this: Electronic Music from the Middle Eastern Avant-Garde (1959-2001).

I liked the Darius Dolat-Shahi one in particular; reminds me of BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Terry Riley, and Raymond Scott, with the eastern sound of the stringed instrument the setar, reminiscent of Greek rebetika.

On the other hand the spoken word (LAY-LA! A WOMAN! ) in the Halim El-Dabh bit are kind of hard to digest.
