Rocked by the quietude of suspension, my reflections float on the differences that permeate the apparent sameness of life, which people call monotony or boredom.
How to close your eyes and listen to the grey, filled with colours that only you can imagine? Because if you can image, you can see what is there from the start.
Normally time flies so fast that the details can´t even be seen. If one slows everything down, what a myriad of small preciosities will, all of a sudden, exist. A world of endless curious mysteries will unfold.
The same is always different. And those differences, all together, create a transcendental oneness.


released June 5, 2020

Recorded and edited in my living room in Porto during April/May 2020.
The cover photo was taken from my balcony. Everyday the same view takes new shapes and presents new mysteries.
Mixed by SSS and Torbjörn Zetterberg.
