“Drifting Thoughts” – a new improvisation for the recreated, ancient lyre! This piece features my lyre tuned in geometrically pure just intonation, in the intensely introspective ancient Greek Dorian Mode; the equivalent intervals as E-E on the white notes of the piano (and misnamed the Phrygian mode by scholars during the early Middle Ages).
I recently re-learnt & extended this improvisation, re-recorded and remastered it (with reverb sampled from actual cathedrals!), which now forms track 9 of my 2020 album, “New Ancestral Music – Rebirth of the Ancient Lyre”; a musical journey exploring the goal of achieving the ancient Greek philosophical ideal of “Ataraxia” – the inner harmony & freedom from distress only achieved, once we can learn to live the difficult truth, that the only thing certain, is uncertainty:
Once we accept this truth, only then can we sometimes simply appreciate the mystery!
Available from all the usual digital music platforms, higher quality 320kbps MP3’s of this album can be downloaded direct from my website:
