Notes

  • Program notes: 

    "White line fever" is a slang expression for highway hypnosis, a trance-like state in which the driver's conscious mind is apparently fully focused elsewhere. It's a relatively common experience, where the conscious and unconscious minds appear to concentrate on different things. I've spent last several years mostly travelling all over Europe, meeting and working with young musicians from all over the world, sharing experiences and thoughts, playing or conducting musical pieces both traditional and exotic... But, always pressed by work, deadlines and long distances, the only time and place left for me to reflect on music, people, experiences and my own thoughts was in the loneliness of the hotel room or the long highway in between cities. In those moments, the reflections on music, the sounds of the highway and sounds of different radio stations would intermix with different results.
