The imaginary world resulting from legends and myths has always fascinated and inspired me since early childhood. Legends trigger a state of consciousness that detaches itself from the immediate flow of events and comes to stand out in its own reality. As if measuring oneself with another temporal space, mental representations are free to unfold onto other planes of the mind where imagination calls forth cryptic landscapes depicted in musical parables. Perhaps another means for self-discovery? Similar to a tale, in Legend the unfolding of the music narrative is triggered by the harp, the story-teller as it were, and its interludes. The music narrative is explored in a continuous unfolding of phrases and sound agglomerates shaped through a process of timbral modulation and melodic transformation.
