    The Biopholio™ is a two-sided, 20-panel origami-inspired medium, bursting with vibrant artwork and liner notes; each one made entirely out of FSC-certified, robust paper, hand-folded and printed using plant-based inks. There is no Compact Disk (CD) or plastic in this product.

    Found inside each Biopholio™ is a unique code for the listener to digitally download the music in hers/his preferred format (high CD-quality, uncompressed WAV files, et cetera...)

    This innovative design caters to the environmentally-conscious listener, who is aware of the harmful effects of plastic in the environment, yet feels that a digital download is just not enough. With your purchase, you are supporting the future of this music and the artists who create it with the added bonus of receiving a tangible piece of original album artwork that you can proudly cherish for years to come.

about

English: This movement is meant to depict the ever surprising nature of simply living our lives. Life is not a perfectly executed plan. We might think our day is going to unravel in particular manner but along the way, we encounter completely unexpected incidents, tragedies, surprises,…we find ourselves having to take pauses for unexpected beauty where we wouldn’t have predicted. Life is absurd and beautiful.

Español: Este movimiento representa lo sorprendente e impredecible que puede ser nuestra existencia. La vida no es un plan perfectamente ejecutado. Podríamos pensar que nuestro día se va a desarrollar de una manera particular, pero al final de este nos suceden cosas completamente inesperadas: tragedias, sorpresas, puro aburrimiento… y de repente nos encontramos tomando una pausa para reconocer cosas bellas e inesperadas. La vida es absurda y hermosa.

lyrics

Lyrics in Spanish:

Ve,
haz las preguntas 
Si,
rompe tu preludio y
di - me
como es que yo soy
Yo,
del origen de esa
gran explosión

Ve,
vive esta vida

Si,
Tan absurda y bella
Ve,
haz las preguntas

Si,
rompe tu preludio y
Ve,
abre los ojos

Ve,
haz las preguntas

Respirando el mundo
Ve,
Vive esta vida
tan absurda, bella y
bre - ve
Entre los sueños es que
vemos
un amor que nos exige
vivir.

English Title: Absurd and Beautiful Life

Go,
ask every question,
Yes,
tear apart your prelude,
tell - me
how it is that I
I,
came to be from such a
grand burst of light.

Go,
live up this life,

yes,
so absurd and awesome.
Go,
ask every question.

Yes,
break apart your prelude,
Go,
open your eyes,

Go,
Asking all the questions,

Breathing in this world,
Go,
Live up this life,
so absurd, so great so
short - lived.
Between our dreams is when we
witness
that great love that asks us all to
live now.
