«There is an old Sanskrit word, lîla, which means play. Richer than our word, it means divine play, the play of creation, destruction, and re-creation, the folding and unfolding of the cosmos. Lîla, free and deep, is both the delight and enjoyment of this moment, and the play of God. It also means love.
Lîla may be the simplest thing there is—spontaneous, childish, disarming. But as we grow and experience the complexities of life, it may also be the most difficult and hard-won achievement imaginable, and its coming to fruition is a kind of homecoming to our true selves.»
— Free Play, by Stephen Nachmanovtich
The root of all tracks are made together with my beloved ukulele named Lîla for the reason mentioned above. Whenever we play music together it's like time stops, and I have the opportunity to play God for a little moment; creating sounds, moving air, making brainwaves followed by emotions.. It's a form of communication beyond words, but the combination of both makes for a complete understanding of both ideas and emotions.
This short EP is about my journey through life, like all of my tracks are. It tells the story of how I moved from home to the great unknown, met Alan Watts and taoism, learnt to appreaciate the beauty in nature while understanding that I, too, am a part of nature. You and I, togheter we are joy. Our unconsciousness makes me sad...
