Album Notes
Blink once, and the moment is upon you, blink twice and it passes you by...

If you don’t keep your eyes and ears open you’ll risk losing a magical instant…During this instant, Zeugma makes its mark on stage and on the world. Eight musicians with backgrounds in both Western Classical and Middle Eastern music create, perform, improvise—the angelic voice of Ralda Salem, the entrancing rhythms of percussionist Ziya Tabassian, Katia Makdissi-Warren’s Arab ‘oud, and a string quintet (Zoé Dumais and Alexandre Duguay on violin, Maryse Lord on viola, Anne Marie Cassidy on cello, Daniel Myssyk on double bass) all come together to play the compositions of Gilbert Deshaies and of Zeugma’s founder Katia Makdissi-Warren. And the world noticed. Since it’s founding in February of 2000, the group has given numerous concerts and has been invited to many festivals, including the Sommet de la Francophonie, scheduled for October 2001 in Lebanon, and then suddenly cancelled due to the unfortunate events of September 11. Through music colored by a Classical base and by non-diatonic Arab scales (commonly known as quarter tones), they carved their niche in the World Music scene and have been noticed by audiences from both Western and Eastern cultures.
Since the group disbanded in 2006, this CD has become a collector\'s item and a definite \"must listen\".
