One step forward, two steps back; the eternal struggle of fighting that which can't be fought. Letting go is an artform. Presented here is the perfect soundtrack to accompany intrepid explorers like yourself along the journey of leaving it all behind. Eliminate the clutter in your thoughts and press ever onward. Peace is a state of mind, waiting to be found by those who make the effort to find it. Make the effort.

My idea, like everyone else, I understand, is to evolve and offer something in each release. With Norte (North) I don't know if I made it, but I hope to contribute with something new (in the context of my work). In this case I trust that it will be a walk through a landscape that each one must imagine and build.
