In a world of uncertainties, chaos and misbalance, a diary is a door towards safety, comfort, and intimacy. Laying down emotions and anxiety, describing desire and fears, answers of the day and questions of tomorrow. A diary is like a faithful friend that holds all our inner world within its lines, giving us the space to think, to remember or to let things go, to have the freedom to cry, to laugh, to love, to hate and to dream. Keeping a track on our daily life experience, sharing our deepest secrets, lighten the soul, engraving memories we don’t want to forget.
As a child I used to find my escape in playing the piano. Music is an instant art and can only be experienced in direct relation with silence and time. It is a space where I could move free and express all my feelings through playing. Therefore composing music became kind of my personal diary. Instead of typing words, I prefer to write melodies.
This album is stories about beginnings and endings, and everything in between. It’s about life and its opportunities, about some feelings which never find their way out. It is about finding balance, between who we are and what we think we are, the doubts that we care within us, and the fears that we try to overcome. Those glimpses of diaries are short stories about feelings which even if they are personal, they are still common and familiar to each and every one of us. It is a message about reminding ourselves and others, that we are not alone...
Seven days, seven improvisations which later I worked on to create short pieces. Those glimpses of diaries are paradoxically secret experiences and still universal emotions. Like preludes, inviting the listener to experience the atmosphere of sound, and its reflections, through this unique instrument, but still giving them the space to create their own stories...
I hope this album will bring a peaceful space in your life and will accompany your struggling days, like a caring friend, bringing you some joy in your daily routine.

Stumbled across Hania, and having now listened to everything, including her collaborations, there isn’t a single track that I don’t like, if not love, which I think is a first in five decades of music appreciation - her work with Dobrawa Czocher are amongst the most beautiful pieces - thank you, Hania and Dobrawa, the music really is a joy.
