sample the album:
"Detours, paths astray, confusions, secret paths, detours, hope and wishes combine the path of impulses of the present, past, and future. The path runs in several dimensions at the same time, while at the same time being unique: it is the purpose and event at the same time. This distinguishes it from the map that always shows the same path, now matter how many times it has been taken. But the path not only requires movement along it, but at the same time reality in movement, so that the path can become reality. The path shifts the form of possibility into reality, so that reality becomes contingency. This shifting could be called the poetry of the path."-Berni Doessegger, Zurich, August 2016
