CD Reviews

Hi there
Juanma | Spain | 02/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In this special moment of expresion Mose leaves the tracks of a more regular performing into a mood that gives form and expresses the subtle of a particular experience of beeing.

This recording reveals in a special way the situation of beeing one who understand him as relations with a misterious world that sorrounds him , conforms himself and at the sametime is diferent that him.

The relation between individual beeings and the world that is a whole, the notion of points of consciousness inside a whole which is one and unconscious, is a meditation wich repeats along Mose's speech throughout his recordings and may be specialy expressed in songs like "The fires of spring" (as the whole) or "Mocking bird" (as the individual and his particular stage of self-consciousness).

Mose creates the world, his world, and himself as his particular way of experincing this relationship. The music (particularly in the first track wich gives name to the album) is at times slightly diverted into tones wich strikes like a revelation, maybe in this time Mose also got closer to free jazz resonances that in other records.

The music is the body of the sensation, and it's taste is the experience itself and the understanding.

In this record, Mose gets specially tuned to that universe to which he salutes every time he speaks and do music. As he said, "The earth wants you".

Kind Regards,
