Excerption from liner notes of double vinyl release:
“(..) For me this recording is also an evidence of the noise of the soul’s night – an inkling of the promise of a new beginning, the miracle of rebirth. With the first chords a new world begins to emerge, the musicians taking part in the mystery of creation for the full duration of the recording – from chaos order is slowly born. If in the beginning was The Word, then sound was also one of the elements at the creation of the world. And musicians prove this, articulating the primordial sound, filling it with purpose, new colours and intonations.(..)(Mikus Solovejs)”
