Responding to the constraints imposed by this environmental condition, throughout the years, ingenuity and creativity have helped us to survive and prosper like no other species, despite all the inequality. Humankind found a way to overcome difficulties, mainly through the use of imagination from which resulted the invention of technologies.
What results of that tension between environment and human ambition, is an eternal fight between geographical conditions and the existentialist forces in every one of us. Following this dialectic, the titles on Geography are softly evocations of that story, alluding to curious moments in history, circumstances and affairs of the human adventure on the planet and on the Universe. From small- to large-scale, all of them — moments, circumstances and affairs — with long plots.
In Geography I also wanted to trace back friendly moments with fellow musicians with whom I have performed with in the past. All samples used in the record are thus memories of those times and my own geography of personal and musical relationships.
