This album was inspired by La Colonie Volvox's 5500km journey across Europe in 2009. The album is divided in two fictional sides, of which side A or “West” deals with the discrete charm of the North/West individualism and its unbearable lightness of being, while side B or “East” emphasizes the deep, meditative and collective consciousness of the Eastern worlds. However, as in reality, the two worlds are never clearly separated, so don’t expect to hear totally different soundscapes – on the contrary, the similarities are always stronger and deeper rooted then the differences...
