"An album of broad scope, musically, lyrically and texturally. The name alludes to a process of constant questing that is part of Arbouretum's raison d'etre, what Heumann describes as 'a sense of religiosity that is not tied down to a particular moral or ecclesiastical approach, but rather proto-religious feelings such as awe in the face of something greater.' In this case, that 'something greater' is the music itself and/or the source thereof. Rites... was influenced either obtusely or more directly (as in the song 'Mohammed's Hex and Bounty,' based on 'Love with a Few Hairs' by Mohamed Mrabet) by the writer Paul Bowles. Band is led by Dave Heumann (Anomoanon); musicians on the album include Mitchell Feldstein (Lungfish) and David Bergander (Celebration)."
