About the album

we move and we move
broaden the circles
go to the source go to the goal
we walk the trails
the giant spiral
and sing the timeless song

Saxophonist Gilda Razani and pianist Hans Wanning with her compositions form a unique highly atmospheric sound. In their compositions they mix jazz, romantic, avant-garde, rock and electro. Velvety floating melodies of almost casual serenity, sparkling solos, powerful moments of hypnotic force determining the sound between relaxed meditation and breakneck dramaturgy. Poetic, imaginative and experimental override Gilda Razani and Hans Wanning light-heartedly about genre boundaries and create moving and beautiful soundtracks, which includes fine dia-logues. With the CD "Nashira" Sub.Vision now published their third CD production. The title of the album on the one hand is the name of only about 139 light years from Earth Star. On the other hand means "Nashira" in Arabic, "which brings the good news." The compositions of the tracks are inspired by little scenes of everyday.
