Within the Motus Laevus project many elements coexist naturally: the sounds and languages of antique and modern instruments, both acoustic and electric; original compositions and traditional pieces, all in a melting pot where world music draws close to contemporary jazz; Slovenian songs and European culture blend with North African and Oriental dance; Eastern compositions from ancient times become mingled with Middle Eastern, Greek and Turkish scales. In this "Motus" (movement) everything evolves and transforms with each interpretation that the group makes.

Motus Laevus has many meanings and interpretations in Latin. Translated literally, it means "inverse movement", but it can also mean "anticlockwise" or "left-handed", also in the positive sense that Latin people attribute to the Orient.
Everything and the contrary of everything, underlining the fact that words, like music, contain within them multiple directions and forms in time and space; a world without boundaries.

"Sifr" is an Arabic word meaning "zero" or "empty".
This word was translated by the Latins by assonance, in "Zephirum" (Zephyr), a figure of Greek mythology who personified the west wind that blows almost inadvertently. The word "cipher" also comes from the same term. Sifr is therefore nothingness, emptiness, zero, but also a nothingness that takes shape and dimension and becomes a number in turn. This new record creates a cultural bridge between the West, the Middle East and Eastern Europe and moves musically like a wind that brings with it traditional melodies and original songs imbued with different cultures. A music made of sounds and silences, of solids and voids that flow naturally between composition and improvisation thanks to the synergy and interplay of the three artists and their guests. Jazz and world music meet, intertwine and redefine each other in a musical syncretism that becomes a new language: that of Motus Laevus.
