(E)motion Without Movement is a musical fantasy that takes a close look into the Artist's soul. He sees himself as the creator of abstract musical worlds, leading a quixotic battle against the engulfing silence. However there is one persistence voice, that the "creator" is unable to control. It's the voice of the "Narrator" - an embodiment of an inner voice. The Narrator is always there, in the corner of the mind, recounting thoughts and doubts. (E)motion Without Movement shifts between the Creator and the Narrator, between the act of creation and that of storytelling, between the musical and narrative experiences. At the very last minute, the conductor-creator reassumes control, abandoning his ego, the narrator, and finally dedicating himself entirely to his worlds creation process with no distractions. And from there on - the sky is the limit. We are a story seeking a narrator, ignoring time that is continuously piling up in our flesh, says the conductor at the crucial scene.

“…Already, in the first paragraph, I will spare you all the 2000 words I am about to write. Save the intellectual trouble and time and write three words: "Amazing, perfect and exciting."
