“How far do we have to go to find music? Nothing that is industrial or passionate, not a supplement, production, or commissioned work, nothing that simply matches stylistic conventions, nothing resulting from a lack of will …but simply to leave behind our compulsion to meet expectations; to enter the inexhaustible realm of sounds. To plunge into indescribable tonal colors, forgetting matters of methodology, system, and schooling – flashy fashions, the zeitgeist … As if we were floating on the silky surface of a lake, arms wide open, letting ourselves to be carried to unknown, unexplored spaces, into the unexpected, at times the surprising realm of possibilities opened up by unrehearsed forms. Into the mysteries of irretrievable moments and musical situations.
I am grateful to God for letting me share this exciting and spontaneous creative process with such unique musicians as Barnabás Dukay, Aurél Holló, and (last but not least) Adriána Kalafszky. I am thankful that they accepted my invitation to this project. Their personalities and musical preparation have been essential for the conception and creation of this musical fabric.
Dear lover of music, dear listener! We invite you to witness and delve into this selection of recordings from a nearly three-hour creative session.”
