“Over time David and Arve managed to create a specific sound language of their own, which is beautifully reflected in this recording. It goes way beyond just the music, and could be very well described as sound painting, sound sculpting or perhaps sound dancing, with its cross-media concept, that it creates, at least in my perception.

The music flows unhurried, as if freed from the fourth dimension and rhythmic patterns, like wind, which blows gently and unpredictably. It is up to the listener to become part of the process of creation and setting the pace, by which these sound collages take shape within or between the brain cells.

The beauty of this music is like an elixir, which hopefully might cure or at least reduce the suffering, to which all of us are exposed in the world that surrounds us: loneliness, estrangement, desperation, futility… destiny? Music, after all, makes life worth living. As always, the magicians / alchemists behind this sound potion have my eternal gratitude.”

David Kollar Prešovský kraj, Slovakia

Kollar treats his music with a deep degree of seriousness and personal involvement, as if each and every one of his projects was not only his proverbial brain child but as if it was his actual offspring. He treats his instrument as a gateway between his complex ideas and their audible representation, the same way a sculptor treats the chisel or a painter the brush."
