From the CD liner notes:
... A completely different type of oppression is being created in Thailand from ya-ba, literally translated as “crazy drug”, to which many youngsters in Bangkok are addicted. In 'Yaba', the composer conveys his own idea of their destructive intoxication. The pizzicato’s in the introduction of the piece refer to the start of the “trip”, that initial gnawing of the chemicals in the addict’s brain. What follows is a sudden, overwhelming tutti with a violent electric guitar, as reality fades away, the trance sets in. The mental instability and fragmented perception find their musical depiction in a constantly changing atmosphere, sonorous volatility, as euphoria switches to a melancholic violin solo accompanied by taikos and drums. Swirling blood races through the veins, a frenetic pulse constantly present. ...
