Nature is truth. "Momenta Quintae Essentiae" is nature.
Man has always filled the surrounding nature with meaning. Be it gods, fairies, myths, fears or desires: Our everyday perception of nature is shaped by our culture's projections onto it.
However, with "Momenta Quintae Essentiae" Nhor from the UK chooses a completely different approach. The eight pieces of the album try to capture nature without any judgement or interpretation. The sensitive compositions, presented by piano, acoustic guitar and sporadic, very reserved vocals, continue where Nhor is missing words to describe what a simple walk into the woods before your own door may spark in your inner self: Clarity, inner peace and a deep connection reaching farther back than any cultural endeavours of mankind. The "fifth essence" is what renders this connection possible and "Momenta Quintae Essentiae" gives these moments of connectivity musical form - free of any judgement and simply beautiful.
