Burnside Album Details
Duros, Stephen, Thira
On Stephen Duros" excellent first album for Ottmar Liebert's Spiral Subwave Records Int'l.,you can hear the Mediterranean vibe behind the techno/gitano orchestration. Thirs--in acuality a location in the Greek isles associated with Atlantis--is nouveau flamenco, but with an eastern Mediterranean feel, the sense of dusky light and shipwrecks in the Aegean, the lonely sirens calling out to their drowned lovers. Romanticism and the call of history and lost cicilizations. And the synth textures & background make this CD nouveau, it's the call and response between the flamenco guitar & the oud that set the mindscapes way back in ancient history.
