Our first music album “ΓΕΝΕΣΙΣ” has already been released!
The word “ΓΕΝΕΣΙΣ”, which means “creation”, represents new ideas derived from ancient knowledge. The sound of the ancient Greek aulos is revived again after 2000 years in a modern music production. It is the result of a constant and long-term effort of our music team, which focuses on music creation based on our ancient Greek music tradition. The composition and music production of the album was developed and performed through the use of ancient Greek instruments constructed by the team itself. These play a leading role as primary solo instruments, while at the same time other modern instruments are used for accompaniment purposes. Ancient Greek lyrics of ancient Greek poetry are also performed into the music, which are melodically arranged and orchestrated by the team.
