about

Montserrat is a concept album which features compositions written in the period of 2012-2013 after the release of These Sands. The digital download of the album includes a short story (in English, written by Oskars Jansons and Niklāvs Olševskis) regarding events that happened in medieval Spain, at the abbey of Montserrat. The album was recorded at a private studio.
The said period features more compositions not related to one another or this record (perhaps only in spirit) which will probably be released late 2015.

Track Name: IX Ballad
before Man could have his right
the wind blew the notes apart
and as day shift to night
it became an ill place
wet and cold
Man couldn't say, what was wrong
he hadn't found the place to look
it blew to home

he climbed cliff Montserrat
and listened how it ought to go

he took a little earth in his mouth
chewed it and wished he was old
to be converted into sound
and then by measure
he would fall
and he let his body fall
"Blowing wind
come, wind, come lend a hand
to Be"

he saw through the rocks
the rocks and the sea
the hymn was sound
he could see
