We introduced different times Dalot, the project of Greek composer and musician Maria Papadomanolaki. Three years after Mutogibito and one year after the collaboration with Vietnamese sound artist Nhung Nguyen aka Sound Awakener, he announced the release of a new full-length. ΛΗΤΩ is out now via Time Released Sound.
According to the press release, it is a work about traveling and lost childhood. Travel as a form of journal keeping, of anticipating, of remembering (and fictionalizing), and as a metaphor for this loss of childhood. The 5 tracks were composed during a period of two months following the loss of Leto, and cover a range of geographical locations to mark lived places and moments. In a way, the music on this release is related to a certain process of grieving, of revisiting the same sound and place many times in order to retain memories, and of remembering to come to terms with the waves and fulgurations this process brings. It is therefore a work that celebrates life more than anything else. Who is Leto and what is the story behind the release? It is left to the listener to decipher.
