Influenced by Aziza Mustafa Zadeh, this composition’s main theme was written to inspire those who travel with their minds to unknown worlds. The title itself gives the opportunity to those who dare to be on this journey. Embraced by singing monophonic musical instruments, a polyphonic jazz piano and a repeated glimpse of enlightenment, this composition covers the edges of our planet and beyond. Don’t try to manipulate it through analysis. Just enhance…enhance your emotional thoughts.
