From the seed of the Big Apple an embryo is starting to grow taking in sounds and rhythms hectic, abrupt moves collage of languages, both human and animal, forming out an image of surroundings. An information flood of such magnitude, nourishes it´s fertile mind, picking up pieces here & there, collecting a memory bank of richness and plentitude. Building up on knowledge connecting loose ends pushing and pulling plugs on the operating board. New York observation. As the time reserved on this quantum leap of a growing span is very limited the new genre baby´s counted time is already just around the corner knocking on the door.

The songs, lyrics and chords are written 17.3-26.3.2023 during a visit to New York. They are recorded at Casandra´s Private Room Gateway, in heart of Brooklyn, 150 Hull Street, Brooklyn, NY 11233, U.S.

The recordings contains sounds from streets, subways, parks etc..

Greenwich village how they turned you into a museum tourist attraction something to take your picture on famous places carved into folk, poetry & rock n´ roll history. Still cafe Wha is there and all the streets & corners intact Peek to a candy softer window of instruments pocket trumpets, sitars & guitars, twelve strings, six strings, three string, banjos & bailaphones Walls covered with album covers all celebrating the glorious past holding on to a dream, distant cry of a lonesome mandolin(violin)
