Album notes:

Dream Theory in Malaya is titled after a paper by visionary anthropologist, Kilton Stewart, who in 1935 visited a remarkable highland tribe of Malaysian aborigines, the Senoi, whose happiness and well-being were linked to their morning custom of family dream-telling — where a child's fearful dream of falling was praised as a gift to learn to fly the next night and where a dream-song or dance was taught to a neighboring tribe to create a common bond beyond differences of custom. The Semelai are another tribe not far from the Senoi but who live in the largest swamp area of Malaysia. A recorded fragment of their joy-filled watersplash rhythm was restructured and became the generating force for the composition, Malay, as well as providing a thematic guide for the entire recording.
