For me, this record is a happy coincidence of ideas, wonderful people, music, emotions and circumstances. All tracks of this album were written at different times. All members of the ensemble took part in arranging the compositions. Old and new music added up to some sort of an image, reflection… About the depth of a dark underground spring. About the times when earth opens up and the streams will reflect the sun for the first time. About the dark night that has a thousand eyes, a million sounds, and you have no end and edge ... About the inner life of each of us that one day overwhelms us, comes out of the shores and becomes reality.

I would like to thank all participants of the happening for their joy and creativity, for their patience and desire to understand. Thank you for this unique opportunity not to rush anywhere, live this day and this music.
