A Dream Book of Sonic Journeys

Ensō is a conceptual music album – a sonic dream book of musical journeys from one’s roots throughout the world of international influences and towards the rediscovery of native musical traditions. In Zen, ensō is a circle which is hand-drawn in one uninhibited brushstroke, expressing a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. A circle – a symbolic metaphor for travels, reoccurrences of sound patterns in music, and a symbol of the cyclical narrative of ebbs and flows – an expression for a gathering of musician friends creating together.

~ Piotr Nowotnik

>About

Although the sixteen tracks of Ensō draw upon the traditional music of Eurasia, Poland, Scandinavia, Middle East, and other regions, it is far from being an ethnomusicological showcase. Through its inventive expressiveness, its main aim is to contemplate emotional complexity associated with expatriation.
