This is an extract of disguised grief.
Fictional but non-fictional and
Soft, we witness
Still searching for the soul of the body.
Dedicated to Satyr N Conor
„Earth took of Earth, Earth with woe,
Earth other Earth to the Earth drew,
Earth laid Earth in an Earthen trough,
Then had Earth of Earth Earth enough.“
"When you listen to 'Opposizione (Soft)' you quickly discover that something different is at play. Individually, the band members are fine musicians that know how to subtly complement each other. But when performing together, the distinctive ITOE spirit becomes apparent and the music acquires a wholly different significance.
This means that the musical expression goes much further than a mere execution of a musical idea, as the innate significance of a particular musical element, instrument or procedure takes on an remarkable notion of inevitability, of inner logic. The reward for the listener of this particular ITOE spirit is a distinctive musical perspective, in a music that is both highly personal, suggestive, rife and imaginative."
