Everything carry traces of something. It can be traces of arisen memories, fragments, which float up to the surface through circumstances in life, traces you want to follow, explore and toy with. In this string trio in four separated parts, such appearing traces of musical memories have been grasped.
There is about 4-5 traces, (maybe more - but in that case unconscious ones). It’s not about straight, lit-up traces, but tissues of traces and searching paths where recalls may gleam-up to soon after disappear again in the pattern. It’s about love to music, the happiness to be and live within music, from sadness to rushing euphoric pulse-rhythm.
