Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stefan Weglowski's project is a result of a lengthy intellectual process, intense growth and a search for inspiration. The concept of form, the vision of a defined dramaturgical structure, the idea of a powerful, unequivocal, intense and expressive music, accompanied by equally poignant lyrics, emerged gradually. The search for a literary layer led him to the books of the Old Testament, which, rediscovered years later, presents us with a God who is strict and crul. The excerpted material has undergone a long, arduous processing, in order to achieve a clearly defined effect - an idiosyncratic, unique sound, which is an invariant element of a complex musical structure.
