artjahelenaA: „It’s a complicated subject. We are the fastest and most versatile by ourselves, but then we lack direct competition. Together it’s interesting to compete with the other. It has the most movement, emotion, sweat and tears.“
H: „Well, we take it all rather superficially, in a way.“
A: „That superficiality was something that failed us last time. Our focus changed
completely in the end. It’s not all that bad, but the starting point was more expressive, more interesting than the emotionality and ambivalence of music. The game is good, but in our fiction we should overproduce things and memories, instead of doing less.“
H: „Well that is the game, isn’t it?“
A: „Yes, let’s hope this is our first win. But I think the situation is different right now and everybody knows that if we win this game, we are qualified. But I guess it’s still too early to collect the trophies. As it’s too early to start discussing all the possible results that may come.“
H: „I also wanted rush in and say that the game has to start good. It will give another
momentum to the whole game.“
A: „Ouch, wrong pass.“
H: „But that’s exactly how it started the last time. Our wrong passes and fast attacks.“
A: „Very beautiful. It’s pretty sure that either of us will try to take more of the game on our shoulders.“
H: „Yes. Ouch, that ball flew off right now…“
