WHO IS NARIA?
Naria is a concept project, a band.
Naria is also the album’s main character. The double album “Naria and the Fly….Waiting for Lunch” represents the elements Earth and Air. The album’s concept is based on the classical Greek element system; the basis for many philosophies. Naria’s actual story is based on the percolation of the fifth element – Aether – to its earthly four elements.
NARIA AND THE FLY …WAITING FOR LUNCH
The journey starts in the anonymity of a dirty and bustling city. While wandering around, Naria gets torn out of the city and straight into wondrous scenarios. A trippy journey starts through surreal environs – a tangled mess of her subconscious perception and memory – to explore meaning and being. She is accompanied and followed by a fly – a blurred after-image and an abstraction to the girl – that turns out to be the only constant besides herself in an increasingly tumultuous world.
The story constantly changes its perspective, becoming silent in the middle of a sentence to begin from scratch in a different scene. The music arises and forms from different leitmotifs representing the acting characters of the plot. These different motifs intensify, the more deeply the characters get enmeshed in the storyline. The story becomes music…and the music becomes story.
