«Spirits» came to life after Chris Silver T invited Anna Stereopoulou to a collaboration project on the same titled track of the album. Chris’s field recording on the specific composition took place during one of his visits to his hometown; a morning walk to the village, through stone pathways and towards a peaceful area, where spirits can be heard in the air. The piece was a motive for two more tracks that work as a spontaneous new challenge trying to see the result of two artists working together for the first time. «Silver Burns the Stereo Out» reflects Anna’s admiration to Miles Davis‘s «Miles Runs the Voodoo Down» (‘Bitches Brew’, 1970), while the title «Voici le Diable! Non, pas Lui: c’est le vent..?» (with the addition of a question mark at the end) is a line taken from a poem written by Erik Satie, found in his composition «Méditation» (‘Avant-Dernières Pensées’, No.III, 1915). The whole album showcases both artists’ attempt to create on a free-form and surrealist basis.

“An opportunity I was given, by Chris Silver T, to express part of my admiration to Free Improvisation / Jazz and ‘Surreal Impressionism’ (if one could describe it likewise); and finally fuse Piano with Drums.” – a.s.
