Notes

  • Program notes: 

    I’m curious about the principle of flow of the human thoughts and it’s unpredictable chaos. In the apparent organization, the human brain satitated by everyday’s  troubles, generates more and more uncontrollable and rapidly changing signals.  Observing these flows in austerity, it provides an incredibly unrelated, intermittent portray of human life which is alien to all eternal and gradual. Thoughts constantly are being born and dying. But what is behind them?

    Sat Nam - the central and most powerful mantra in Kundalini Yoga tradition. Literally it can be translated as Identity is unity. Everything is interconnected - each movement of the breath unites us with the space and the outside world. Each action affects the environment in which we are. From each of us individually depends how alert, how happy we all are together. Each link in the chain, each of our choices can make a devastating effect like a row of falling domino dices. Sat Nam means self identity, the presence of the Universe in ourselves, in every molecule, identification with inner and with the same - the cosmic energy, complete understanding of self.

    Both in musical form, selection and development of used musical material Sat Nam is as a flow of thoughts towards blissful silence of truth, which is more and more increasingly tried to approach, at the same time dominated by powers of chaos and unpredictability at equal strenght until thunderous power of anarchy of the mind. Energy snake gets out of control. The more is aspiration, then less result. Peace arrives unexpected when it is stopped desperately to want.

    Andris Dzenītis
