I am so glad to participate in this amazing compilation titled 'The Music of Ancient gReece: an appReciation' on Surrism-Phonoethics curated by Igor Jovanovic ( LEZET ). My track is titled 'Atermon' and is loosely based on the well known ancient Seikilos melody.
The music of ancient Greece was almost universally present in society, from marriages and funerals to religious ceremonies, theatre, folk music and the ballad-like reciting of epic poetry. It thus played an integral role in the lives of ancient Greeks. There are significant fragments of actual Greek musical notation as well as many literary references to ancient Greek music, such that some things can be known—or reasonably surmised—about what the music sounded like, the general role of music in society, the economics of music, the importance of a professional caste of musicians, etc" (Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_ancient_Greece).The tracks on this compilation are either covers of the remaining fragments of Ancient Greek music, or a reflection of the participating artists on the cultural legacy of Ancient Greece and an attempt to find the music of Ancient Greece in their own compositional approaches.

I am more than happy to participate in 'Ombre Et Lumière' compilation on dhatūrā records. My track is titled 'Als de dwaas zou volharden in zijn dwaasheid zou hij wijs worden' (In English: If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise) a William Blake line out of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
A short track based on mostly acoustic sounds and vocals aiming at innate weirdness, generative evolution and 'cyclical' melody. Enjoy. A free download.

Proud to be part of LEZET -2''- released with CLASSWAR KARAOKE(UK)! The album contains the EP of 2-second songs 10 remixes/reinterpretations of fellow artists.
Driven by the idea that came from a song I did a while back, I wanted to simply make an EP of 2-second tracks , but it became so much more than that. This idea turned into a collection of 2-second tracks that could be looped and hopefully perceived as genuine microsongs that have a clear melodic or rhythmic centre. It so happened that the stems I made and used on these were given a whole new life by my friends who also happen to be extraordinary music-makers. They provided an entire collection of songs that way surpassed the core EP and made me realise once again that collaboration and exchange are the only real path to music exploration and growth / Igor Jovanovic, March 2015released 27 March 2015
