"Intention. The thing I'd always felt deep down about Asva recordings was that sense of... Intention. Good as they have been they rang hollow, as if the truth of what nature born those tracks was hidden behind a veneer of having to 'be' a definable thing, genre specific, a way to 'belong' somewhere in the midst of other music. The intention behind Presences Of Absences has been to make something real and unbiased, an honest effort at reproducing what is Asva's nature as a band and as individuals. Not heavy in the traditional sense of 'heavy' but emotive and powerful, not quirky, not elusive or exclusive, but a different breed entire. Presences Of Absences is about sincerity, goodwill and compassion, honesty, hard work and in the deepest sense, thanks and reflection at the end of the day. It's a discussion in music utilizing traditional elements (liturgical, plain chant, tintinnabuli musics, folk and gospel musics, acoustic organ and wind instruments, etc) and contemporary electric instrumentation and playing methods to expose our shared origins, our pasts, presents and futures and the common thread passing through our relationships to all of it... Presences Of Absences is a big work."
