Sergey Lenkov Michael Levy explores the world of ancient instruments by giving possibilty to the listeners to feel the textures of lyre's sound.
It's no real Ancient Greek music but this album shows the way to understand its charm. In the same time Michael Levy reinvents ancient world instruments as a part of our modern world musical culture. Favorite track: Ascension of the Lyre (Harp: Rebecca Penkett Lyre: Michael Levy).

about

ANCIENT LYRE MUSIC FOR MEDITATION

This compilation album features a selection of some of my most meditative compositions for archaic replica lyres featured in my previous ancient-themed albums, in some of the most hypnotic, mesmerizing ancient Greek intonations and musical modes I have so far experimented with. The tracks all feature the use of geometrically pure musical intervals in just intonation, many of which feature the subtly more calming effect of using a reference tuning pitch of A at 432 Hertz.

In our increasingly soulless, manufactured musical world, it is my intention that the 'new ancestral music' featured in this album forms sound tracks suitable for relaxation, meditation & spiritual contemplation…
