Gurdjieff, born in Kaukasus at the boundary between Armenia and Turkey, developed a philosophical apprenticeship that melds the esoteric knowledge of the East and the scientific thinking of the West. As he traveled many years through Asia and the East, he gathered and recorded melody and ritual dances. His friend and student Thomas de Hartmann processed these to piano pieces.
