Album cover: Les Trés Riches Heures by the Limbourg brothers, February calendar illustration. The Tres Riches Heures is _the_ classic example of a medieval book of hours. It was a collection of the text for each liturgical hour of the day - hence the name - which often included other, supplementary, texts. Calendars, prayers, psalms and masses for certain holy days were commonly included. (description from University of Chicago, Humanities Division, reprinted here for educational means).
Several of the instruments used to create these textures are actually iPhone/iTouch apps, including Bebot, miniSynth, Android FX, and Ellatron. The rest was just classic sonic manipulation.
