The premise of the album Insight comes from a possible definition of INSIGHT - An insight is the derivation of a rule which links cause with effect. The mind is a model of the universe built up from insights. - Based on this, Insight was composed using a random process of forward expansion of musical structures, establishing an equilibrium state and jumping to new territory, a different direction than the previous one, leading to insights on different musical styles. It starts with an approach to ambiance, changes to nujazz structures, continues the journey through contemporary music (with the help of Tiago Morgado playing Alto Viola in Track 3) and finishes with an approach to trip hop. The message delivered by the album, the explosion of communication technologies and their reflection on the way we interact with each other, the insights allowed by science and its contradictions.

Suterminal is the expression of one person with its main focus on exploring the collision between soundscapes and poetry, using automatic expression based on science - WORDSOUNDSCAPES. The automata is used on the construction of words/poems and sounds/music that jointly deliver messages to the society towards activities of REFLECTION. Words and sounds have different meanings, depending on its listener, but only if he/she takes sometime to dwelve in the complexity of him/herself stimulated.
