This album is an ode to my friends, creativity and love. It is an album that was born out of inspirations gathered in the rocky, damp and green isle of Ireland. In this album all the compositions are seeking to blur the lines between improvisation and composition. By using a multitude of various compositional and improvisational techniques, a long an array of mistakes where inevitable along the way.
Some of these mistakes turned into beautiful snippets of humility and transparence. As much as the songs are trying to blur the lines between composition and improvisation it is as much of an effort of turning the unintentional to the intentional. It is about Sisucunda, the deep place within where all strong emotions come from.
Hope you will enjoy listening to the album!
Yours truly, Otso.
