about

We are Alerusjon, and this is our first musical statement to our friends, and all those who discover this CD on their, or someone else's, music shelf.

It might be amusing to say so, but all of the music on this disk is almost as brand new and unexpected for us as it is for you. Everything was composed and (somewhat) arranged at least, but the thread that runs through the album is improvisation at all stages of the production – tying together the strengths of all the great artists who collaborated with us.

A debut with collaborations? Yes, for this is a very special debut. We play with 9 friends from Central-, Eastern- and Western-Europe. You’ll hear Romanian, Latvian, Azerbaidjanian, Russian and English lyrics on the record, while the music is flavoured with Brazilian Choro, Bossa and Samba, Indie, Baroque, Jazz, Minimal, Pop.

Ideas, inspiration, confrontation – think of playing together as akin to feeding fish in reverse. Before a piece can come out of the water there is an immense bustling turmoil. It takes a firm hand to grab and hold on to those ideas, so you can pull them from the water in one smooth movement. Besides the tendency to make things round, sound and perfect, making music remains, after all, rather a mêlée than a mélange.

Track Name: Keep on Waiting (with Almost Under)
Strained / from endlessly moving
Weak / from not fitting in
Lost / between walls that are turning
Torn / between different minds

Days / will come bringing nothing
and Days / will go without a trace
Time / won't change a thing
But still / I keep on waiting

Hide / to blend into darkness
or Rise / try to light it up
Move / maybe you can escape it
Stay / 'til it's passing by

Days / will come ...
...

Drained / from meaningless moments
Wait / for another one
Track Name: Glāze Vīna (Glass of Vine) with Inese Berzina
Uz vienu glāzi vīna
mēs tikāmies tā netīšām
jo kārdinājums bija
un atteikties mēs nēspējām it nemaz

Es ilgāk paliktu te
jo mājās steikties negribās
svētdienā tev tik tuvu
vēl vienu glāzi malkotu, vienu vēl

mums ir tikai vienai glāzei laiks jo nevari tu kavēties
tev mājās būs japsakaidro, kur biji stundu kāpēc ar koooooo…..?

Tu uzstāji, ka jādodas
un acis tev bij bažīgas
Ar skumju smaidu piekritu
un vientulībā paliku, paliku

atnāc vēl kādreiz ar mani satikties vēl viss var mainīties,
kur vel viena brīža laimes stars man atkal liks aizmist tooooo…….
Track Name: Босса на песке (Bossa on the sand) with Jacqueline Djohar
Босса На Песке (Bossa na peske, Bossa on the sand)

Куплет 1:
Я дышу, лечу и порхаю.
Сладкий сон , утро наступает .
Вижу отблеск волн,
Ослепляет он .

Припев:
Вкус лета на губах ,
Сладкие слова на моих устах.
Льется с неба муза в песне мне,
Что пою тебе.
День давший новый шанс ,
Озаривший свет побуждает нас,
К танцу в мягком шаге ,как во сне .
Босса на песке .

2 куплет:
Я плыву и волны окропляют.
Берег скал море омывает .
Ветер, что от звезд
Веру мне принес.
