“We are devotees of mathematical polyphonies, sequences and improvisations based on pure feeling and dark romantic world vision. We fuel our passion for composing by the inspiration we get from vibrant and harsh sound textures, as well as from the flexibility of the music piece form.

An eternal experiment is the way we’ve chosen to lead us to what we call a musical perfection.”
