More Info:

The extraordinary album... between... is the third album in a series dedicated to the one of Greece's leading composers, Christos Samaras. This album includes four works. The "Thirteen Full Moons for Absence" is a modular work consisting of small sections, with arrayed forms which develop based on repetition as well as the readjustment of similar intervals that perpetually move within the palette of tonal space. Diffused sound colours are lost within each other creating a world of colourful instability, and, at the same time, expressing a bewildering motionless moment. The "Five Remorses and a Sea" reflects musical references of mental situations under conditions of pressure, sorrow, tension, conflict, but at the same time hope and nostalgia. One might say that the musical 'mosaic' technique depicts the whole way of life that results in the dream, the Aegean archipelago! Remorse is registered in memory as an 'anti-credo' of what is deemed necessary, a game between the real and the dream world. "Quasi una Sonata" is characterised as an Eleusinian ritual, where the directions of the movements also symbolise the torques of the soul toward light or darkness. The sonic events, with pulse and inconceivable force, carry us into a higher resonance of initiation into arcane life, where the constant purification of the soul through sound symbolically begins to refine and redeem us from everyday passions. "Sonata" is a three-part work which highlights images and colours in a virtuoso manner and touches situations of an imaginary landscape. A sonic world is created with soundscapes and emotional depictions in the dimension of imaginary realism.
