The word "eclipse" comes from the Greek "ekleipsi", meaning "abandonment." Quite literally, an eclipse was seen as the sun abandoning the earth. In the past, the most recurrent embodiment of an eclipse was a dragon or a demon devouring the sun; ancient people would produce great noise and commotion during an eclipse, banging on pots and drums, to frighten away the monster. Ekleipsi is a place where sounds produced in darkness are freed: we play in the womb of shadows, to frighten away our demons and bring back light. Ekleipsi is a non-commercial Net Label based in Milan, Italy. The label was founded in March 2007 with the aim to provide independent dark music, free to listen and download.
