Review of Thira

Stephen's first album

On this, Stephen Duros' excellent first album for Ottmar Liebert's Spiral Subwave Records Int'l, you can hear the Mediterranean vibe behind the gitano/techno/ambient orchestration. Thira - 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. While the synth textures & background make this music sound contemporary, it's the call and response between the flamenco guitar & the oud that set the mindscapes way back in ancient history.
