지난 여름에 녹음한 제 노래 두 곡과 재즈스탠다드 편곡 두 곡을 드디어 내어놓습니다. 첫 번째 앨범을 낸 후 점을 찍는 느낌으로, 서울에서 새로 만난 연주자 분들과 호흡을 맞추어 보았습니다. Circles to Nil이라는 제목은 '무(無)로의 원들'이라고 해석되어 네 곡의 음악이 모두 부재와 거리, 회상과 허무 등의 테마를 노래하고 있습니다.

Finally releasing the two of my new originals and two standards that my friends and I recorded last summer in Seoul. I wrote these music catching my breath with a still-drifting mind after my first album release and a journey far from home. The four tracks resonate with the theme of absence, distance, memories, futility, etc., under the title of Circles to Nil.

Track Name: Tiny Feather
A tiny feather is floating over the fire
My curious and strange heart would dance and run and fall
To the sky and, to the ground
You know home, but why bother?
Till the fire dies out, the ashes fly away

So what can I do? As helpless as you,
All I see is the burning embers
When the fire wants me, too, grabs me and burns,
Then I’ll travel being as light as you!
Track Name: Circles to Nil
The night is close to you
When you say, “Was it all a blunder?”
How long will you wait for the sun
To burn it all, dry it all, and blow it all

Ebb and flow break through
Till you find you’re left with just a clutter
That’s why you pace and wait for the moon
To erase it all, sink it all, forget it all

The time, it stirs around out hearts till we lose
Desire and mercy used to be so vast that cross wide sea, break all the old rules, beyond time, place, words, life, death, creation, and nil.
Track Name: Con Alma
How I see your love in a hollow dream where you fly away softly, singing a song you chase
How I walk through the flowers that you left with me and named "loneliness" I embrace
I close my eyes when your sun is setting, but our songs, where do they go?
How I build a room for your soul and mine, full of suns and moons and stars, lost in the time and place
