ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This compilation album features a selection of some of my most meditative compositions for archaic replica lyres featured in my previous ancient-themed albums, in some of the most hypnotic, mesmerizing ancient Greek intonations and musical modes I have so far experimented with. The tracks all feature the use of geometrically pure musical intervals in just intonation, many of which feature the subtly more calming effect of using a reference tuning pitch of A at 432 Hertz. These enigmatic melodies are perfect soundtracks for relaxation, meditation or prayer; for yoga, reiki, aromatherapy or massage; the perfect musical antidote to living in our stressful, spiritually deprived, aesthetically deprived contemporary world...

We live in a bland and relentlessly manufactured 'musical' world. To me, it feels soulless. It’s as if the stonking beat of rock’ n roll was replaced by a drum machine and suddenly a thrumming heartbeat was silenced in the world. Somehow this replacement pacemaker doesn’t quite measure up!

So, I have a musical mission. An obsession, some might say to open a portal to a time that has been all but forgotten - I dream to rekindle the very spirit of our ancient ancestors. To capture, for just a few moments, a time when people imagined the fabric of the universe was woven from harmonies and notes. To luxuriate in a gentler time when the fragility of life was truly appreciated and its every action was performed in the almighty sense of awe felt for the ancient gods.

With its capacity to transport our thoughts and imaginations, truly there must only be one true magic left in this realm. Music, I say! For, in nothing more than an instant the notes from an ancient melody can carry us right back into the heart of ancient society. Hark...can you hear the lyres and lutes strumming victories and love songs of ordinary people living under these same skies, so many thousands of years before?

Listen here to experience life, at a different rhythm. Close your eyes and through the strange and enigmatic notes, plucked on strings lost through time, let the ancestors sing you their songs...
