Radio TLV1 Tel Aviv: Israel in Translation "Stories not Swords in the Secret Book of Kings"

from by Michael Levy



An excerpt from the Radio TLV Tel Aviv series, "Israel in Translation" entitled "Stories not Swords in the Secret Book of Kings", first broadcast on 31st August, 2016:

The show opened with a clip of audio actually sampled from one of my earlier 'live' YouTube videos, which featured my arrangement for solo lyre of a reconstruction of an ancient Egyptian melody:

I learnt the incredible melody which I arranged in this slideshow-style video, from a track I had originally heard on the album "Music of the Ancient Sumerians, Egyptians & Greeks" by "The Ensemble De Organographia". The scale used in their recording, was taken from a three-holed Egyptian vertical flute, still in a playable condition.
