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.
