Damjan Krajacic & Robert Thies
Two musicians from quite different backgrounds came together on this album in musical friendship, and found a common language to express a wealth of beauty without imposing any limitations on creativity, expression or style. The result is a friendly collaboration: a wonderful alloy of the world's musical traditions, with a result that is not only pleasant, but refreshing, heartfelt and hopeful. The sounds embrace our diverse musical heritage without being dogmatic, and point at a new era of true artistic collaboration across genres and styles, perhaps helping to pave the road towards a new way of capturing the human condition of our times.
The refinement and sensitivity of the music draws from the depth of many hundreds of years of classical heritage, while the improvisations point at the great tradition of Jazz and ethnic expression. The individual tunes started mostly as lead sheets, some developing into complex forms with beautiful introductions, and extensive and inspired improvisations. Throughout the album, hints of Classical, Jazz, Cuban, Brazilian, and Eastern European sounds accompany the musical journey that hopefully creates a little difference for all of us.
