The Eye of Time is the project of French musician and composer Marc Euvrie. One year later ANTI, he announced the released of a new album. MYTH I : A last dance for the things we love, part 1 of Myth’s trilogy, is out now via Denovali Records. Full streaming is available below.
MYTH is a word with ambiguous meanings in the dictionary, but all these lead to the same conclusion. The Eye of Time’s MYTH trilogy is about the path that humanity took over the ages and about how we could tell this epic story. We could decide to see things on the bright side, or to a have a more dramatical (in the literal sense) look on it. Like if one species is looking at another, and in a different era. MYTH is a feedback to the tragical events of our time, to what people have to endure nowadays in order to survive, as well as the refugees travels, and the resistance against capitalism that is growing all over the world. MYTH is also a particular way to see things, to take sides with history. When we talk about ancient political activists and revolutionaries, resistances to the established order, we make the choice to transform it into a myth, a history full of heroes. But the past is the present. And our present will be the past again. It is on us to take action in order to avoid our inevitable end.
Marc Euvrie recorded “MYTH I : A last dance for the things we love” completely on his own. Being away from home, dealing with family issues, his music served him as deep introspection about himself and the world. An introspection impregnated with minimalistic moments, where piano and cello write the story of loneliness and calm. At the same time evolving dramaturgies emerge, driven by rumbling beats, accompanied by both grim and hopeful melodies; just to be aware that irrationality gives birth to our myths and that myths, in turn, affect our very own existence.
The cover artworks of the MYTH album trilogy display pictures of Emin Özmen, a winner of the world press photo award. His work is focused on the situation in Kurdistan, Syria, Turkey and the “refugees”.
