This is my debut solo album “Even in Arcadia: a deserted person’s guide to mountain life”. It consists of 10 original space folk songs and ditties, as well as a couple of covers. It was recorded in a week during May 2016 at Rhoino, Arcadia, Greece
If you think escaping your familiar material ain’t an impossible task, I’m the one to reassure you that it is, even in Arcadia. I never knew from before though and briefly that’s the story behind my choice to record those songs as a mountaineer on Mount Menalo. What you’re about to hear is me, the deserted one meeting my voice.
The only specific piece of advice you can have on listening to those recordings of my short yet astonishing mountain life is that they address solely to the deserted one, the only real listener, inside the rural space.
This album may appear sad on sight, but don’t worry. It’s in fact, a serendipitous souvenir of a rejoicing moment, from when I got even in Arcadia.
