Everything carries traces of something. It can be traces of arising memories, fragments which floats up to the surface through circumstances in life, traces you want to follow, explore and play with.
In this string trio in four parts, such traces of musical memories have been grasped.
It’s about 4-5 traces, (maybe more, but in that case unconscious ones). It’s not about straight, alighted traces, they rather form a web of paths to explore. Recalls may gleam-up, to soon after disappear in the texture. It’s about love to music, the happiness to be and live within music, from melancholy to rushing euphoric pulse-rhythm.
