Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Mathematical theory : This equation : This trio : 1 is the individual - whose input is the basis of the work - which becomes 3, the trio. From there, 3, we move to 2, which is the audience plus the trio and then we move back to 1. This new 1 is the same individual but is no longer the same.
