About the concept of the album :“Between the Southern Cross & the Northern Star” represents the deep connection with reality in its most natural way.Like it happens in the moment of the artistic creation, when a melody comes to our mind, and we can hear it without playing it yet; the inspiration sings the melodies to our mind… Is a reflection about the sometimes inpercptible reality, behind every act, and the analysis of the everyday and our own experiences. No matter what you see or believe to see, for example, even if the light in our eyes seems to have a single color, the reality speaks of something quite different. Reality exists with or without us. This album represents the need to move forward in understanding and free thought. Questioning everything and returning to the roots of philosophy, to develope in our personal journey toward deeper understanding.
In other words : The importance to keep searching for the hidden truth of all things and the denial of conformity.
