**75 copies, hand numbered** Separated by a ten year period, the five pieces composing this record share the same contemplative, hypnotic and sedative space. We contemplate, we descend, we descend and contemplate, opening a space within ourselves to receive and shape imagined, flexible structures, peacefully cohabiting an apparently contradictory reality – one in which fixed musical materials live through the transient nature of a moment. It is precisely in the duality between composition and improvisation that these pieces are allowed to breathe, in a symbiotic process in which both parts aim to gather benefits from their coexistence.

Gustavo Costa is a musician and an artist with numerous talents guided by a constant exploration of the limits of listening. He is a drummer, an instrument maker, a creator of new sounds, a sound sculptor, a teacher, a programmer, and a generous booster of the contemporary music and sound art that is made in Portugal nowadays.
