Christian Ferlaino says about this work:

"As a folk trained musician and an improviser, I recently developed the need for harmonising these two sides of my musical expertise. I therefore undertook research focusing on shaping a personal musical language which would incorporate folk music elements of the region Calabria (Italy) into contemporary improvised music. The music in this CD was composed on the basis of a special set of grammatical rules derived from Calabrian folk music. The pieces are built on very limited music materials approached through compositional/improvisational resources that could be defined as melodic formula, and modular micro-variation. These generative principles of Calabrian tradition were filtered through my musical background as a contemporary western improviser."
