in our lives we meet people and we get to spend some time with several of them. and depending on who we spend our time with and in what state of mind the time together is spent, we talk about friendship. and the more honest and unconditional this friendship is, the more it adds to the quality of our respective lives.

it's a rare thing when you meet someone and right from the first moment you know you add to each others lives. it only happens a few times but we have all been there and we recognize those moments as well as the people it concerns. and we think back at those moments with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

and then there is the way friendships can end. a wrongfully interpreted word, a misunderstood thought, incompatible visions or because it started to cost more energy then it gave back. as incomprehensible a friendship begins, it can also end.

and then there are true and deep friendships that never ended, even when said friend has left this dimension. those are the worst ... with 'invocation' the [law-rah] collective and cinema perdu present a split album with personal views and interpretations of the emptiness that remains. finding closure in a process of grief. not the most happy of feelings, but it's a feeling we all recognize, a feeling we all relate to and maybe the feeling we all have problems with giving it a place in our lives.

the process of composing, writing, producing and finishing 'invocation' has helped us seeing things in perspective again after loosing loved ones. we hope it can do the same to you.

'invocation', simply to have a final conversation about what really matters, to share a final drink, or just to to say you care ...
