After two decades of creation, it´s not an easy task to write about the body of work of The Question; and, in a few lines, to compile and resume what that journey has been so far; the motives and intentions, and what it all means to the artist itself.
Throughout the years, there are certain themes in common, though; recurrent subjects and ideas that one can find on all periods of this project. Those common elements are, indeed, more philosophical and conceptual than aesthetic.
The materials and methods involved in the process of sound creation may change dramatically from one song to another, but it is the aura itself, rather than the elements that form that aura, what makes The Question's work identifiable and unique.
From the first track of that demo tape EP released in 1997 (The Question's first published material) to his/her latest work, there's a constant confrontation between chaos and beauty, between love and death (hence the tag ¨"elamorte"), re-enacted and presented through sounds and words; melancholic and bright, at the same time, soundscapes; intricate arrangements and folk song structures wrapped in sonic experimentation.
