Mind Over Matter - Because of the complexity of the melody, where the tempo increase and decrease in speed, and at the same time odd meters are implemented, the title seems appropriate.
Entrance To My World - This track is a virtual password in order to enter my world. My world is made up of myriads of voids to be filled only with creative and non-destructive thinking.
The Fun House - My version of what music would be playing while one walks through a very surreal Fun House.
Surprise Land - Open the front door of your house and find yourself in another dimension, where everything is the same... or is it?
A Minor Purpose - A ballad that does not have a major purpose!
Emphasis Of A Goddess - A Goddess in some ways is even more powerful than a God. If she takes a stand on a certain issue... there is no way in stopping her. This piece is the foreground music to that occasion.
Strength Of Soul - When your soul is strong, enduring hardship can only make you grow... vertically!
Ludvik Meets Helena - Two characters from one of my favorite book - The Unbereable Lightness Of Being, by Milan Kundera. The two share a beautiful love story.
Stacked - A high energy guitar driven fusion piece. The sounds are fat, and that's why I called it 'Stacked'.
Artifacts - A journey in search of the essential artifacts, is interrupted by a group of musicians that block the entrance to an unknown place, using sounds!
