Here's a stereo reduction of the original 8.0 surround work.
This piece reflects my emotions about a small coastal village somewhere in the Aegean Sea. It encloses my memories for the place and its people, developing linearly by combining ambient recordings and spoken stories from the village with folk music and abstract elements. Here, I am primarily interested in the dramaturgical structure in the long scale; the primary concern being to move away from a non-differential abstract soundworld and to retain a cultural identity by guiding the listener through a journey of experiences to catharsis, though without having any extraterrestrial allusions.
