Image logo - graphic metaphor of integral musical composition and totality of Eastern musical traditions:

 

A form of rhombus used as a symbol is formed by wide live vertical lines. These verticals, jossly and mobile, remind of natural textures from nature and graphic image of sound.

The form of the phombus - the metaphor of equilibrium, completness and continuity.

Vertical lines - this is a musical text limited by rhombus. They are a symbol of integrality and completeness.
