sample the album:
"The Magi hate our thoughts in a fierce tone. They like to remain focused on an object of meditation. These objects are the most intimate, the thickest, the most magical in the world. The first, not the principal, are twelve, namely; The primordial twilight. The soft chain and the nebulous number. The chaos fed by the ladder. The fish space and the ocean space. The incalculable trapezoid. The wagon of nerves. The etheric ogre. The ray of straw. The scorpion-limit and the complete scorpion. The spirit of the dying stars. The lords of the circle. Reincarnation of office. Without these elementary basic notions No real communication with the people of this country."-Henri Michaux, In the land of magic.

"I believe that music is formed in time and finds its fulfillment. Programming, defining, schematizing, improvising are the different and not contradictory ways of accompanying the growth of an organism that, like every living thing, is born, grows , Becomes individualized and extinct.The necessity of the ephemeral is the credibility of the form: I do not know the aesthetics of the piece globally, but only the form of a fragment which reproduces constantly as it transforms itself.
