  • Michael Kapilidis Haemus - Coming-Out Party

    7:03

    *********Michael Kapilidis' Haemus - Coming-Out Party*********

    It is with great pleasure that i present to you my solo project, Haemus.
    I wrote all the music, as well as played/programmed the vast majority of the instruments.

    Manos Saridakis played the lead synths (the solo at 3:15 and the lead parts from 5:35 till the end). Make sure to check out his work, especially his fantastic (mostly) solo piano album The Greek Real Book here:


    The live drum performance was filmed by Panos Zenidis and recorded/mixed at MD Recording Studio in Athens by Nikos Michalodimitrakis.


    -------Gear used for this track:-----

    |||| Gretsch Drums (Renown Maple) Toms: 10x8 & 12x9, Floor Tom:14x14, Bd:20x16

    Ludwig Hammered Bronze Snare Drum

    |||| Meinl Cymbals (14 Pure Alloy Hats, 10 Benny Greb Crasher Hats, 18 Pure Alloy Medium Crash, 12 SCH Stack, 22 Vintage Pure Ride, 22 Byzance Jazz China Ride w/rivets with an old cracked cymbal underneath, 16 Byzance Jazz Thin Crash)

    |||| Porter&Davies Bc Gigster Tactile Drum Monitor System

    |||| Vic Firth Drumsticks (Keith Carlock Signature & 5A Double Glaze models)



    -----A few words about the Music-----

    The song is in 11/8 time signature (or 11/16 if you prefer although i find it way more practical to notate this, as well as similar rhythms in 8th notes). It is based on the Bulgarian Kopanitsa(Kopanica) rhythm/dance. The Bulgarians think of (mostly) everything in groups of 2's and 3's so a Kopanitsa is grouped as 2-2-3-2-2. I find though, that to create more space for things to happen it is more practical to feel it as 4-3-4, thus creating three uneven pulses (the first accent of each grouping) which themselves in turn create the Kopanitsa Clave.
    This concept was introduced to me by my colleague, bassmeister Panagiotis Andreou (of Now Vs. Now & NY Gypsy All-Stars fame). We co-lead the Athens-based, world-fusion band, Hopla Loon. The general idea is that you can take almost any traditional Balkan rhythm and create a clave out of the primary accents of each grouping. So, for example if you have a 7/8 instead of feeling it as 2-2-3 (ONE-two/ONE-two/ONE-two-three), you divide it in two groups of 4 and 3 (ONE-two-three-four/ONE-two-three).
    This approach gives way more space for syncopation, polyrhythms and for contemporary melodic and harmonic concepts. Any instrument can play on, off, around or against the clave instead of being tied to the rhythm of the traditional melody and/or rhythm (in the traditional Balkan music more often than not the rhythm follows/matches the melody).
    In my tune Coming-Out Party the clave is present from the begining till the end. The drums, sometimes weave in and out of it, creating tension and release, and other times play exactly on it. The other instruments/sounds function the same way. The only part of the track which comes close to resembling a traditional Kopanica (in the sense that almost every instrument is stating the clave) is the outro. (5:35)
    As for the drumming, i applied a lot of my own concepts in the tune but i got the foundation and the basics by listening and playing along to traditional Bulgarian music (a lot of it has the davul or tapan, as the main timekeeping device). I also checked out records of virtuoso clarinetist Ivo Papasov. Finally, i got a lot of ideas and inspiration from Engin Kaan Gunaydin of the NY Gypsy All-Stars and, last but not least, master Bulgarian drummer and tapan player Stoyan Yankulov.(Links below).

    Haemus Mons are today known as the Balkan Mountains. In ancient Greek, the Balkan Peninsula was known as the Peninsula of Haemus (Χερσόνησος τοῦ Αἵμου) probably named after King Haemus of prehistoric Thrace (Θράκη).

    ---This track is the first in a series of tunes i wrote inspired by the traditional music idioms of the Balkans, Meditterenean and Middle East areas. There is so much music happening in this corner of the world and it amazes me that despite the advent of internet, youtube etc. not many people from the West have become hip to it. One of my goals is to change that! ;)

    Thanks for your interest.

    37:34

    The Balkans, also known as the Balkan Peninsula, is a geographic area in southeastern Europe with various definitions and meanings, including geopolitical and historical. The region takes its name from the Balkan Mountains that stretch throughout the whole of Bulgaria from the Serbian-Bulgarian border to the Black Sea coast. Balkan music is a type of music found in the Balkan region of southeastern Europe. The music is characterised by complex rhythm. The term the Balkans is used more generally for the region; it includes states in the region, which may extend beyond the peninsula, and is not defined by the geography of the peninsula itself. The Balkans are usually said to comprise Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Greece, and Slovenia.

  • Седемте Престола манастир The Seven Altars Monastery

    6:21

    The Seven Altars (Bulgarian: Седемте престола, Sedemte prestola), officially the Monastery of the Most Holy Mother of God (Bulgarian: Манастир „Света Богородица, Manastir „Sveta Bogoroditsa) is a Bulgarian Orthodox monastery of the Eparchy of Sofia, situated in the western Balkan Mountains, on the border between Sofia Province and Vratsa Province. It is located in the valley of the Gabrovnitsa River, on the way from Eliseyna through the Iskar Gorge to the village of Osenovlag, Sofia Province, at the foot of Izdremets Peak (1492 m). It is one of the 100 Tourist Sites of Bulgaria.
    History:
    A legend says that the short-lived Bulgarian tsar Peter Delyan (Peter II) died in the monastery, which was a temporary capital of Bulgaria. According to the same legend, the brother of the Bulgarian monarch became the first abbot of the holy cloister.
    The monastery is more popular with its unofficial name The Seven Altars because of its unique church. The legend says that seven boyars established seven villages in the close proximity of the monastery — Osenovlag, Ogoya, Ogradishte, Bukovets, Leskovdol, Zhelen and Lakatnik. There are seven chapels (altars) in the church[1] and experts[who?] claim that there is no other Bulgarian church of this kind. There is evidence that the monastery existed in the 16th century.
    On the north side of the monastery there are ruins of a fortress, which local people call the Latin Stronghold. Parts of its stone wall can be seen from the steep pathway starting from the monastery. The monastery's gate was taken from these remains.
    Another legend says that during the Ottoman Age the monastery was demolished and set on fire. Valchan gathered the voivodes. They decided to build the monastery. The voivodes were seven: Valchan Voyvoda, Father Martin, Spiros Dimitar, Malenko the Serb, Emin Bey, Ali Bey and Petar. The church was built with seven altars in their honour. Valchan's idea was actually to hide the entrance to the fortress. Down in its vault a Roman treasure was hidden.
    St Sophronius of Vratsa, bishop of the Eparchy of Vratsa, lived and officiated in the monastery, which was part of his diocese at the time.
    Geography:
    The monastery is situated only 86 km away from Sofia, which makes it a popular weekend destination. It offers sleeping accommodation and a large dining-room for gatherings.
    The Seven Altars Monastery can be reached by car from Eliseyna in the Iskar Gorge. Eliseyna is 42 km away from Sofia, on the Sofia ring-road through Novi Iskar, and 46 km from Mezdra. Only passenger trains stop at this station. The distance to the monastery is about 10--12 km. There is a bus to the monastery that waits for the train every evening. The road to the Seven Altars runs through the middle of Eliseyna, across the railway.
    The road to the monastery quite narrow, but asphalt-paved. The grave of the famous Bulgarian children's writer Zmey Goryanin (1905--1958)—author of 50 books and brochures—is in the yard, behind the church. There are sequoias planted in the monastery yard, the roots of which have started cracking the walls.

    My friend and colleague Vahan Galstyan played zourna on this track. He is an amazing musician. You should definitely check him out! You can start here:





    -------Gear used for this track:-----

    |||| Gretsch Drums (Renown Maple) Toms: 10x8 & 12x9, Floor Tom:14x14, Bd:20x16

    Ludwig Hammered Bronze Snare Drum

    The second tune in the series is called Slippery Steps. The title is a direct reference to the culture that partly inspired the music and the rhythms in the tune. Slippery Steps is the direct translation of the word Nastrtzini (Ναστριτζινι) which is a very popular dance from Serres, Greece. It is part of the repertoire of the zourna, one of the most popular and definitely the most beloved traditional instrument of the region.

    As far as the drumming is concerned, i applied a lot of my own concepts in this tune also, but i got the foundation and the basics by listening and playing along to traditional music from Serres. I checked out and transcribed quite a lot of daouli players and especially the two undisputed masters of the instrument, Ilias Dimanos (Ηλιας Δημανος) and Giannis Dramalis (Γιαννης Δραμαλης). Τheir playing is infectious, virtuosic and full of improv and surprises but stil rooted and connected to the Dance. One of the things that struck a chord with me is that they tend to not play the bass sound on the downbeats. In the Balkans by and large, the percussion HAS to play the downbeats on the bass (or “boom” sound, because (more often than not) this is where the steps of the dancers fall. Interestingly enough, the daoultzides (daouli players) in the Serraic tradition not only avoid playing the downbeats with the bass sound very often but even more they accent “weird” parts of the rhythm, offbeats etc. In almost any other part of Greece one would expected the dancers to collapse under such ambiguous rhythms but the groove is so strong despite the syncopated playing and the melody is so strongly embedded in people’s heads, so it doesn’t mean a thing for them.

    One other interesting fact from this tradition that i haven’t seen elsewhere in Greece is that the primary dancer, the one that leads the dance is in constant connection/conversation with the daouli player. Is one of the rare cases where the that role (from the band’s part) isn’t held by a melodic instrument (clarinet, violin, lyra etc.).

    Evidence of all the above can be seen and heard in this absolutely amazing and inspiring clip. The group (zygia) of Giannis Dramalis play a local traditional festival (panigiri) in Aridaia. The dancers and musicians are in top form and they create absolute magic, rarely caught on camera. This is the Nastritzini dance. The music is of course in 7/8 (with e 3-2-2 feel) until it resolves majestically to 4/4 (Gaida Vasi) at about 1:45



    Haemus Mons are today known as the Balkan Mountains. In ancient Greek, the Balkan Peninsula was known as the Peninsula of Haemus (Χερσόνησος τοῦ Αἵμου) probably named after King Haemus of prehistoric Thrace (Θράκη).

    The Carpathian Mountains or Carpathians are a mountain range system across Central and Eastern Europe. They are the third-longest mountain range in Europe after the Ural Mountains and Scandinavian Mountains. The Carpathians consist of a chain of mountain ranges that stretch in an arc from the Czech Republic in the northwest through Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Ukraine, Serbia and Romania in the southeast. The highest range within the Carpathians is the Tatras, on the border of Slovakia and Poland. The second-highest range is the Southern Carpathians in Romania.

    The largest range is the Tatras in Poland and Slovakia. A major part of the western and northeastern Outer Eastern Carpathians in Poland, Ukraine, and Slovakia is traditionally called the Eastern Beskids. Section of the Carpathians within borders of Ukraine is commonly known as the Ukrainian Carpathians. Classification of eastern sections of the Carpathians is particularly complex, since it was influenced by several overlapping traditions. Terms like Wooded Carpathians, Poloniny Mountains or Eastern Beskids are often used in varying scopes by authors belonging to different traditions.

    And where did the gray-white eagle come from?
    It dispersed the flock around the blue sea
    White down rose to heaven,
    Gray feathers fell on a green meadow
    And who will collect these feathers?
    - A beautiful girl

    Wielkie podziękowania dla Asi i Huzego za gościnę i wspólne bębnienie! / Many thanks to Asia and Huzy for hospitality and drumming!

    Dziękujemy Ramanowi za podzielenie się pieśnią, tekst i tłumaczenie! / Thanks to Raman for sharing this song with us, lyric and translation!





    Laboratorium Pieśni śpiewa tradycyjnie, w wielogłosie pieśni: ukraińskie, bałkańskie, polskie, białoruskie, a także gruzińskie, skandynawskie i wiele innych. Pieśni świata wykonują zarówno a capella, jak i przy akompaniamencie bębnów szamańskich i innych etnicznych instrumentów (m.in. shruti box, dzwonków, przeszkadzajek, fletu, kalimby, mis, gongu), wnosząc w pieśni tradycyjne nową przestrzeń improwizacji głosowych, inspirowanych dźwiękami natury, często intuicyjnych, dzikich, kobiecych.

    Laboratorium Pieśni (meaning: Song Laboratory) is the group of female songsters from Tri-City (Poland), which was created in 2013. Using traditional, polyphonic singing they perform songs from all over the world, mainly: Ukraine, Balkans, Poland, Belarus, Georgia, Scandinavia and many other places. They sing a capella as well as with shaman drums and other ethnic instruments (shruti box, kalimba, flute, gong, zaphir and koshi chimes, singing bowls, rattles etc.), creating a new space in a traditional song, adding voice improvisations, inspired by sounds of nature, often intuitive, wild and feminine.

    Old Mountain
    (music by Dejana & Vlad; lyrics by Vlad)

    To know the gods
    is to deny all of my fears
    all I have been

    This pain, immortal
    My blade yields to the hammer
    This rage, destroyer
    My name cursing the heavens

    The breath is cold
    sleep comes to me
    I close my eyes and dream of home

    This pain, immortal
    My blade yields to the hammer
    This rage, destroyer
    My name cursing the heavens

    Where sunlight dies in darkened skies
    Away we go to the mountain of old
    On frozen throne, in caves below
    the seer awaits, our fate is foretold

  • Duduk Meditation Memories of Caucasus Armenian Flute

    45:26

    The duduk is easily the most recognisable Armenian musical instrument, featuring perhaps more often in funerals, due to its melancholy tone, than in weddings, although it is also used during celebrations or for dances. With different variations and names, it is used throughout the region – the Balkans, the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.
