Freedom defines not only the relationship of the three musicians to one another, but that of the whole album
This music has no truck with distinctions between genres, while it successfully manages to eschew the congenital defects often resulting from the fusing of genres; it continually seeks for the new, but through the use of familiar musical elements it creates a comfortable acoustic homeliness for the listener; it radiates enthusiasm, and even in its most serious moments it has a message for us: there is nothing more marvellous than music. Which in the case of AndrÃ¡s DÃ©s can fairly easily be taken to mean that there is nothing more marvellous than life. In spite of the difficulties, or even taking them into account. For the listener of the album, all this means is quite simply that this music is good to listen to.
This album is indeed about democracy. It is about what role is played in music by a central will; about how checks and balances work; about where the limits of mutual tolerance lie; and about whether we are able to allow others to sound their own voice alongside us. The sensitively composed and airily orchestrated themes are linked by free improvisations; sometimes the percussion falls silent for a while, and in this three-man political system the individual is free up to a point: as long as he does not infringe the freedom of the others.
Freedom defines not only the relationship of the three musicians to one another, but that of the whole album, because the two improvisations without title and the seven composed songs actually form one single process, meandering like a river, freely forming, yet progressing in a clear direction: these three wonderful musicians seem to have fused not only with music, but with nature itself.
