ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born and raised in New York City, presently a San Diegan, Charles Mazarakes, an award winning filmmaker, has been making short films since he was a teenager.

Always fascinated by the rhythms of film editing and the marriage of image to sound, he (drawing on his early keyboard training) recently began creating original music for his films.

A door opened and wondrous, eclectic, magical music stormed in. Influenced by a panoply of styles and composers from Bach, Vangelis, Glass, Yanni and Classic film scores "Lost Islands on an Imagined Sea" is Mazarakes' first album. Brimming with short captivating gems, sad, uplifting, heroic, tender, it will take you to times and lands that will forever haunt your soul.

Composer Dr. Madelyn Byrne has featured his music at the "Electro-Acoustic Music Experience" at Palomar College and recently his music was beautifully choreographed to by Faith Jensen-Ismay, Artistic Director of the Mojalet Dance Collective.

Regal Short-Short from another era!
The intro strings are soft and pretty. I like the melody. Somewhat 18th Century. The violin tones especially come out very well.

I keep playing it back through, admiring the way its virtual components easily intermingle.

I'd be so proud if one of my pieces had the strings interplay and melodic cohesion of the short-short piece.

In literature, the "flash" short-short story has become in vogue, in which inessentials are cut out to allow for a 'cut to the chase'. This is the aural equivalent--the artist shows us a beautiful piece, imagines with us what it could become, lets a variety of strings play it, keeps the percussion so gentle as is appropriate, and then leaves the scene.

I think it's a wonderful piece. But do make it longer--this is really winning stuff, and I really like it.

Refreshing 1600's style
This piece was very motivating. It feels like an encore for a prince or king. It has the old style common in the 1600's and early 1700's which is very refreshing to hear.

The sound is good and was arranged very well. Has an upbeat tempo that makes me want to stroll down an aisle.
Overall quality is first rate, including sound, arrangement and production. Great composition!

I'm always happy to come across member who put out classical music and soundtracks. Your music is really enjoyable, relaxed but quite focused. This piece has fresh energy to it and the instruments sound well together seems like you have an intuitive sense of what works. And I'm on to another one of your posts! ___

Reviews of my recent work.
3 STAGES TO THE SUN"

Dark Wonderful build up. This song gives a sensation of tragedy, struggle and solution. If I were a filmmaker this is the kind of sound I would want backing my art.
- KingBigNuts from Sweet Corners, Ontario, Canada

Really mysterious beginning. Good spectrum of sound.
Really good work.
- alex_brewer from United Kingdom

Way Cool
Well , the contrasting second section was an unexpectedly & sudden shift of CEP (conceptual experiential perception).
The first ( I liked how the melody evolved from phrase to phrase ) & third section however , were most enjoyable.
- ABVanGrieg from Huntsville, Alabama

Moody and Dramatic
Sets a dramatic tone. The strings repeat a similar sounding part as well, adding to the build. This reminds me a little of the Pink Floyd song Shine On You Crazy Diamond at first.
- SunnKing

Atmospheric intro.
Dark sounding and feeling. I liked that bass synth that drones through under the melody. Some nice production work on this track, reminds of some of William Orbits works to start with. I liked the built up section and some nice catchy melodies here.
- charles5000 from United Kingdom

Mini Symponia!
Initially the dark brooding feel of this piece reminds me of Gorecki's way of layering strings.
I'd be interested to see where this would go if developed further.
- tendermercies from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Great violinist.
And that spooky sound in the background make the song sound mysterious which I like.
Very good job!
- foundationoffur

Ambient and Mysterious
A slightly dark, maybe more "mysterious" or "dramatic" mood to it. A little "synthy" sounding. The first half I like it as an ambient piece, but it isn't wholly engaging. The second half is great, but seems like a different song entirely.
- AlRavage from Malden, Massachusetts
This was intriguing. Amazing texture and mood. Very cinematic and film scorish
- Mydnyter from Lakewood Center, Washington

Star Trek
The way this is orchestrated I feel as if I'm watching a star trek episode. Very Nice Production.
Interesting theme being developed in the lower strings.
The sudden transition was a welcome change to the drawn out intro.
- Event_Horizon from Windsor, Canada

Reviews from "HORIZON"
Absolutely Breath Taking
This song is so somber and so relaxing that I played it over and over again.
I am so into this peice you have such wonderful taste that I can find words to express it...
I think that I would love to hear more from you.
This peice is priceless!
A+ Perfect Rating!

Floats..
This is like the response when depth calls unto height, be ready for the reaction. There was definitely dialogue and then there was calm. Good composition. Recording and Production.

Beautiful I love the feeling it gives me. It kinda makes me feel like somthing big is about to happen. Was this done on a keyboard, because for some reson it seams like it. Well done on one or not, I love it

Beautiful midi work
The sounds you worked with are very well blended and arranged for this very moody, very plesant and inspiring piece. Wonderful chord changes and movement in this piece. Melancholic and deep. Perhaps some dynamic differencial would add to the mystery, still, a very fine work which shows great potential and promise!

Eitorf-Bach, Originally Connecticut, Germany

Clark Ross
It sets a mood very effectively. It's very beautiful, expansive (I can
imagine this music in an IMAX film, panning over a vast expanse of land and shows good craft. Good counterpoint. Very fine writing, and I hope to hear more of your music here!

Eduard Schwan
I like the overall composition, nice interplay between violins and cello
parts. It felt somber, with the high strings presenting occasional shafts of light, somewhat like a cloudy sunset.

Ava Knight

My heart stops at the stunning beauty of these pieces!
Wow! The first cut “We Welcome Him” a classically edged baroque stunner ripples with life, soaring with bold rhythms and a proud lyric beauty. The brooding “Ancient Skies”, the haunting lament of “The Long Walk”, Gaelic heroism in “The Man from Cornish”— I could go on — almost every piece leaves its mark and stays long after you put this CD away.
Great Music!

I really enjoyed this CD. By turns moody, commanding and evocative, Mazarakes's musical pieces are gems, tone poems that hold your attention. I found them compelling by themselves or as a counterpoint to images, especially in cinema.

Pleasantly supprised
The CD is very easy to listen to and I was pleasantly suprised by its varied melodies, wonderful composition, and arrangement. While one song exudes a renaissance air, the one following has a Berlios flaire. It is shameful that such creativity is stiffled not by absence of talent, but by lack of support.
