Album info

""The music of ancient Greece was almost universally present in society, from marriages and funerals to religious ceremonies, theatre, folk music and the ballad-like reciting of epic poetry. It thus played an integral role in the lives of ancient Greeks. There are significant fragments of actual Greek musical notation as well as many literary references to ancient Greek music, such that some things can be known—or reasonably surmised—about what the music sounded like, the general role of music in society, the economics of music, the importance of a professional caste of musicians, etc" (Wikipedia, The tracks on this compilation are either covers of the remaining fragments of Ancient Greek music, or a reflection of the participating artists on the cultural legacy of Ancient Greece and an attempt to find the music of Ancient Greece in their own compositional approaches."   V.A.-"The Music of Ancient gReece: an appReciation"   1Seikilos Epitaph with the Lyre of Apollo by Lina Palera (Lyre 2.0 Project player) 2Anaximander Fragment by Anthony Donovan 3Anakrosmix by Dave Fuglewicz 4Okružen mrtvima by Crocodile Tears 5Cultures All In Harmony by Hectic Head 6Red Ext Top Moontain by nobodisoundz 7Anakrousis by Lezet 8In White Stone by Lomz 9Pythian Chant by Ophed 10Τράβα ρε αλάνη by Alen Ilijić 11Rizoma by Mu. 12The Great Unknown pt.3 by Zoran & Borut 13Ancient Greece Noise by Seiei Jack 14Atermon by BroodingSideOfMadness 15The Same Stream Twice by Daitse 16Agia Kore by Autumna X Triage 17Αρχαία Μουσική Για Σύγχρονη Φορές (Ancient Music For Modern Times) by Jared C.
