Fragment wywiadu z artystą, załączonego do wkładki płyty:
Q: You studied composition but not vocal. How did it happen that the voice became your main source of sounds that you work with?
A: To be completely honest, I always hated my voice, espessially when it's amplified. On the other hand I wanted my performances to be more sensual, but didn't want to make it simple way - I was looking for something existential, something deep, risky. So, I thought, well, I've got my voice, it's mine, it's ugly, and it's something I will never get rid of - then why not to try making something interesting out of it?
Funny enough, when my vocal excercises actually started, I quickly noticed that the voice, I hated, was not mine - there was something completely different inside me, that never came out before.
So, I just decided not to comfort myself anymore. Comforting is also a limitation, but it's doubtful if this works. I believe it's very important to open up towards something that is not on the list of your preferences - through numerous errors, challenges and misleading cues, doubts and thoughts "maybe I have to stop trying". But if you finally go through all this, then you gain totally unexpectable results, something you would never expect from yourself.
Q: This cd is a documentation of a process of you becoming a composer. And this moment of statement is about... how clear can you be with what you want to say?
