................................................

«Lill's music is distinguished for its unfocussed, relaxed concept of time - a wave-like, chain-like progression. Instead of architectonics, the emphasis is on breathing: successive phrases emerge, none of them introducing any new life-pattern or fresh energy, all of them rolling like waves in to the seashore»
(Muusika no.5, 2003).
