Peter Cosa, the producer and initiator of the entire project, lived through the 1990s as a child and teenager, but the emotional impulses of the time and the discovery of different musical styles remained crucial to him. “I go back through the music of that time in my memories to the time I miss, but I don’t know exactly what was behind it all. This is actually the key for me to open up the big story and the long story,” Peter Cosa said.
“It can be said that this is fairly recent history, but time is passing faster than we think, and since 1990 it has been more than 30 years. It is one of the many reasons to immerse yourself well in the meantime and preserve this uniqueness for future generations.”
“It should not only be a memory of our youth, but also a sense of collective euphoria that dominated the whole society at that time,” Apachek added. “There was nothing that seemed impossible and optimism was freely available in every corner.”
