Groundless is the result of uncountable hours of work and joy under the belief that music has to be created merely out of emotions, in order to touch the mind of the listener and the creators themselves.
Producing this recording involved the hands and the help of many people, not all of them listed here, who supported this project in different ways to make it possible, sometimes not even aware of it. To all of you, we are very grateful.
We hope you enjoy this album as much as we do. Your donation will serve to support this and future works of groundless music.

I have been too long the other one
who lives inside a shell
and now I’ve found myself again
in the middle of nowhere.
I have been too long pursuing my dreams
but they run faster than me
and now I’ve found where all they went
and I came here to take them back.
Here we arrived in the Groundless Land
ehere there’s no beginning and there’s no end,
everything is clear now inside my head.
I have been too long so far away
and now we found each other again
where things are made of melody.
Now for me it’s time to leave
and sail my imaginary cloud
but I will take some seeds from here
and spread them everywhere.
