Water is the brainchild of American multi-instrumentalist Pearson Constantino and Swiss guitarist Roberto Pianca.
Everything that happens in the liquid fabric of the world, whether in the shifting sparkle of a great ocean, the temperature variations inside a mother's belly or in the intricate meanders of a leaf; it is what can be perceived in Water.
The extended and evocative sounds, sometimes of wonder and beauty, other times of depth and darkness, remind us that there are no defined sizes of space. Each one contains a smaller space which in turn is huge and can encompass another galaxy.
The musical evolutions of Water's tracks are subtle, perceptible especially with careful listening, but meticulously curated by climaxes where the music only suggests sensations.
In a world overburdened with meanings and words, Water dilutes.
