Essentia  [ Latin, stemming from esse (to be) f. Gr. esti f. Gr. einai (to be) ] – about finding the quintessence of something. Returning to a place you really never left and discovering a new side of it. Textures is set in relation to melodic fragments; an attempt to express both movement and remaining in one place.
