1.Radio Ballad, 1986
2. Fugue, 1995
3. Boogie, 1975

In three snapshots of personal memories, the trio reminisces on the pad-synth soundworlds of ’80’s pop ballads, the wistful nostalgia of my time dutifully learning craft in conservatory, and the echoes of a childhood reverberating with the fading sounds of disco and funk. The title is taken from Julio Cortazar’s 1963 novel Hopscotch, from a passage about a defining humanity via its innate striving toward the long-remembered.
