The idea behind this piece is that maturity is not simply a state of being that rules over us for a period of time, but rather the amount of roads & paths we take throughout our lives... I know, I know, platitude central. On the other hand, I was very young, so I have an excuse.

In any case, I enjoyed a lot working on "Maturity", it was technically challenging (took ~2 months to finish), but without going into insane territory, like "Silent Love Eternal". The idea for it came to me in very bohemian fashion, in a students' pub in Iasi, on a brandy-infused solo night out.
