Serge Bulat's statement:
"…I am extremely grateful and honored.
Seeing your own creation in retrospective: from its inception and development, to finalization, feels like a long way…
So I guess its sort of graduation for Queuelbum.
It was quite a an adventure to release a concept record, structured like a music guide and presented as a audio journey; to bring this experience to people, from art festivals to, simply, their music players… to me the nomination means that the record found its listener and was truly appreciated for what it is…"
