This record features the poetry of Greek Nobel Laureate George Seferis set to the beautiful and subtly colored music of Sigmatropic. Following the album's success in Greece, the poems were translated into English and sung by an all-star cast including Cat Power, Robert Wyatt, Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), Alejandro Escovedo, Mark Eitzel, Steve Wynn, Howe Gelb, Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), and more. Multi-instrumentalist and producer Akis Boyatzis, the nucleus of Sigmatropic, blends live instrumentation and studio wizardry into a diverse collection of songs that drift fluidly through folk and rock styles into dark ambience and back out again. Enhanced CD includes the video for "Haiku Five", featuring Carla Torgerson and Akis.
