Hidden Symmetry (Intro)

This is the first piece of the album, although not the first one that I started working on. I was writing short pieces for 6 double basses and this one seemed to fit right in what I was looking for as an intro to the album. It is all based on a single motif that slowly evolves through the counterpoi...

In Between the Lines

‘In Between the Lines' was practically an improvisation, with the several muted basses adding their little bricks to create the construction of the track. After programming an electronic drum beat, I realized that what was missing was the organic element that Sakir could add with his percussion. T...

Geminal

Geminal is the product of me sending a very basic structure to pianist and keyboardist Leo Genovese. He then contributed to the melodic content of the song. He also sonically defined the piece with his keyboard sounds, bringing in mind those 70s and early 80s Herbie Hancock albums. Once again, my br...

Up

It was my intention with this piece to quickly surprise the listener, taking her/him to quite a different world and mood. It is one of those pieces of mine where the bassline is what actually becomes the melody. The lack of a clear upfront melody is what gives me the freedom to create music that is ...

Algorhythm

For the third piece of Hane I invited two great musicians and friends. Tamer Temel played soprano and tenor sax and Dimitris Klonis was featured on drums and electronics. It is a composition that sprung out of jamming on a quite polyrhythmic but danceable rhythm. After writing the B and C parts I th...

Love's song

Once again, there is a sudden mood swing, with a composition of mine that draws mainly from the Eastern musical traditions. It is a melody that I wrote one morning and recorded most of the bass parts that same evening. I was so glad to have Fotini Kokkala on the kanun, Giannis Poulios on the violin ...

Kairos

I have lately been listening to some church choir music from Georgia and Armenia and have been increasingly interested in vocal music from different parts of the world. This interest pushed me to write a short piece for male choir and basses. I find this combination so interesting, with its deep sou...

Frozen Like the Winter

This is a rare song on the album. It talks in Greek about an occupying soldier with burning eyes, who though, is unable to look the occupied in the eye, afraid of feeling compassion. It is based on a groove that I wrote and improvised on and then sent to Dimitris Klonis. What I heard back from him w...

Baseline

‘Baseline’, just like ’Up’, is one of those bass-melody experiments. It is a bass that becomes a melody and vice versa. This one was first written on paper, without the use of an instrument, in a more conceptual way. I love using bowed basses to be in unison with the pizzicato ones. It reall...

Passage

It was a cold spring night when I plugged in my bass and jammed over this rhythmic loop. It is a rather funky and bluesy little solo, on a single note bass line. I remember listening to a lot of Sly and the Family Stone(One of my favorite Soul/Funk groups) around the days that I played this. As the ...

Alev’s Dance

This is a composition that I wrote for a collaboration with filmmaker Khaled Tanji. It is a short art film that we actually haven’t made yet, however, I thought that the tone of the piece would really fit the overall concept of the album. It is named after my beloved wife, imagining her starting t...

All the Senses Become One

‘All the Senses Become One' is a song in Greek talking about beauty. It describes a beautiful human being passing by and spreading their positive energy around. It is a piece that stylistically lies somewhere between the music of Greece and the Near East and American R&B music that I grew up liste...

Work of Body

This is another jam that evolved into a complete piece. I built this one with my beatboxing, my breaths and my basses, using what was available to me to create something between a Turkish Roma rhythm and an Afro-influenced groove, all through a slightly experimental and avant-garde prism. This one t...

Back Beat

I was trying to go for a balkan-informed theme on this one, with it’s simple melodic lines. I went for a funky swinging beat and Sakir gave it an almost Bollywood feeling to it with his percussion playing. It also is a rather danceable tune, showing my lighter side. Here I played the electric bass...

Grinding Game

I don’t know where the title for this one came from, I guess there is a sense of playfulness but also of a certain struggle in the theme of the track. It is based on Arabic music, especially the music of the Arabian peninsula, with its microtonal melody and its African-like syncopation. My good fr...

Epilogue

‘Epilogue’ is exactly what its title suggests. I wanted to bring a closure to this musical exploration with a free improvisation, over a hypnotic set of bowed basses. I thought that it would be nice to finish this album with the feeling that it comes back to where it started, that is with the na...

Remember your birthday

Remember your birthday is an instrumental composition that came up to marry two miscellaneous timbres, the brass instruments and the kanun, in the limits of a big band. The aspiration of this track is humorous because it is hard for me to remember the birthday of my own people.

Soothing Lullaby

Kanun is the lead instrument of this emotional track. It is perfect for use in lullabies for babies and sentimental videos. In addition to this, it may be used in relaxing videos, YouTube videos and travel videos.
