Trumpeter Artur Majewski (Mikrokolektyw, Robotobibok, Tone Hunting) and viola player Patryk Zakrocki (SzaZa, Spontaneous Chamber Music) emerge on their album as explorers of a unique, organic aural environment. The music collected on the record relies on the manipulation of sound and space. It seems to be breathing or to be a breath – it just lasts like the swoosh of forest trees or the murmur of a stream that flows through the forest. 

The instrumentalists strive to make their music as organic, intuitive, autonomous, vegetative, habitual, primary – and almost primaeval – as possible. Once there was no music – there was only music-making. The world was simple and homogeneous, which is not pejorative, as – when seen up-close – the world is always dissimilar and diversified. Devoid of ego wars, maximally social, collective, democratic and – as a result – thriving. Rhythmical, not propelled by mechanical automatism, but driven by biology. Two people constitute the smallest society – the duo is the smallest musical ecosystem. Millions of years ago the Earth was covered mostly with grass and everything was in perfect working order back then.
