2017 Hevhetia records
"I began work on this album in Autumn 2016. It started with experimentation of sounds from a modular synthetsizer, then I added the guitars and Paolo Ranieri added the trumpets. Some of his riffs I also processed through the synthesizer and each day a song was formed. I used a minimum guitars.

Work on this album was influenced by the diagnosis of my good friend Lukas Halicky, just 34 years old, father of 3 kids with a brain tumour.
Things spiralled downward, as I trusted in a positive result of treatment for my friend and I wanted to help. All this influenced the atmosphere of the songs. This album is a story, like Dostoevsky's notes from the underground. That book fell off its shelf when I thought about the title of this album and its conception. In these circumstances, the painting
from Dušan Očkovič summarised my thoughts (see the album cover). A smoking man deep in thought wearing a striped jumper. I see there Jesus who doesn't want to look me in the eye.
But, as long as the cigarette burns, there is always hope.

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."
