TASOS STAMOU "Musique con Crète"

 

Released 27 May 2018

 

Tasos Stamou presents his most recent electroacoustic music project ‘Musique con Crète’.

The project is the result of a three-year creative research project across Crete (GR). Starting with an artist residency the musician visited the Greek island over the course of three summers, collecting field recordings, performing with local musicians, producing electronic compositions and gathering old records and tapes of traditional music of the region. The project resulted in the assembling of a unique sound collage which reflects his personal experience as a music visitor to this part of the Mediterranean with one of the richest ancient history and living traditions.

MIMIKA ORCHESTRA ''Divinities of the Earth and the Waters''

 

Released 25 May 2018

 

Mimika Orchestra's new album Set in the mysterious world of the ancient Balkans, the album is a fusion of progressive and orchestral music, old Slavic and South Slavic / x-Yugoslav / Balkan folk music and contemporary jazz. It follows a story of a protagonist who sees himself as an effigy in a folk festival, finishing with the burning of the doll, i.e. metaphorically seeing the burning as a funeral for himself and for his society. It is a psychedelic / dreamy album dedicated to the late Oberon King (who was Mimika's previous drummer), to the Yugoslav identity and exposing the richness of Slavic folk music and rhythms as inspirations.
