About Water Shapes

The eight pieces of the debut album of Subconscious Trio, “Water Shapes”, are written and arranged by the three musicians. The album was recorded in Milan in July 2021. 

“Water Shapes” is inspired by the multitude of facets and shifts in one’s personality. Intuitive contemplation; energetic extroversion and gentle moments of solitude; wildness and flexibility – just like water’s many facets. The trio’s music is a colorful combination of various influences. They always search for balance: from traditional to more contemporary approaches; from art pop music nuances, to the eastern musical heritage – Bulgarian, Taiwanese, Carnatic and Italian traditional music, an object of exploration in the musical odysseys of all three musicians. 

The members of the trio also aim to express their perspectives regarding matters such as transcultural exchange, equality and diversity – in art as much as in life. The statement is clear: when a diverse, but similarly minded group of musicians gets together, the result is a surprising and tasteful mix, which will not leave you indifferent
