Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Songlines are invisible pathways connecting places, communities, cities, hopes, love stories, friendships. They are made of songs that are handed on down, sometimes for many generations. With this dreamproject we would like to invite each listener to decide upon and then follow his or her own roadmap (even randomly) and let these stretches of song inspire and evoke a city or any other destination, a favorite one, a real one or one made up. The four of us have directed our inspiration towards a choice of cities we have known during our travels. Nevertheless, tomorrow the names of these cities may change or interchange with other ones while the melodies linger on. Have a safe journey by boat, by plane, by taxi or by train, by wish, by dream, Read more on a cloud or on a stream.” David, Maria, Mario and Diederik Read less
