"A loud and noisy backdown. Musical conversion of the imagined and of the known retreats. A mental space free from the earthly/prosy crowd of impacts. It is a search for a spiritual noise filter to be able to bag the unsubstantial bites in the material world.”

Experimental trio formed in 2009, creating through borderless associations, beyond genres. "They are such a tight-knit unit who seem to know as a whole, the parts and the sum of the parts they want to create."
"Three musicians who believe that music is a potent vehicle for communication that transcends the spoken or written(...)

Track Name: Solar the Monk I.
Solar, Solar The Monk
He is always at home

He never goes in
Cause he never went out
Where did he get that rice?

What shelter he finds
Never sleeps there twice
He harvests no plants
He is milking the sun

Solar, Solar, Solar the monk
The winter is never three months
Track Name: Neméreztem
Soha így nem éreztem még, úgy
ahogy így nem éreztem még

Érzés után érzés után

Soha így nem emlékeztem még, úgy
ahogy így nem emlékeztem még.

Emlék után érzés után

Soha így nem álmodtam még, úgy
ahogy így nem álmodtam még.

Álom után érzés után emlék után érzés után

Nem emlékszem mióta
Nem emlékszem mire
Nem emlékszem amióta
Nem emlékszem amire
Nem emlékszem

Milyen álom az
ami ugyanolyan
mint az ami nem álom
ami ugyanolyan
mint az amit álmodom

Megfoghatatlan az érzés,
amit meg akarok fogni.
Hogy ha megfoghatatlan,
hadd menjen csak
oda ahova akar.

Formátlan boldogság mezeje.
Track Name: Solar the Monk II.
In the Garden of stones
Solar the Monk
Two sun makes one son
He’s always at home

Where east meets the west
He sits with straight back
The altar of crooked goods
Gives him no rest
The enemy, the enemy is me. The enemy’s enemy is me.
There’s only one day, one day
When he never
Never sublimates

The third arm reaches out
And invites all man
The whirling tree settles
Self-monk yourself
Self-monk yourself
