Product details

Epirus is the rugged mountainous northwest region of ancient Greece. The end of the Balkan wars and World War I left the region divided between southern Albania and northwestern Greece. The word Epirus itself derives from the Greek and means 'terra firma' as opposed to Corfu and the Ionian islands. Vasilliki Koukias, the mother of the composer, was born and raised in Epirus Greece and passed away in 2007. Two recordings of Vasiliki's singing became the basis of this new work: a lament (mirolóyia) and a shepherd's song (skaros). Recorded in Hobart, Tasmania in 2000 the recorded voice relays ancient roots from Epirus, transformed again in the composer's new home in Amsterdam. The Tape for this work was developed in collaboration with Evert de Cock a sound engineer based in Amsterdam.
