Greek musician Vasilis Chountas is exploring the grander, rhythmic realm with the new album Emperico. As the title suggests, the single signals his departure from the minimalist Dolphins in the Sky. The official single is called Memories (see the video attached to this post). The melancholic tune is embellished by chilled beats and electronic orchestra. This is more ‘pop’ than anything he has composed.
The video is includes the following credits:
Whodoes Musica is the studio.
Editing : Aris Trianatafillou
Graphic Animations : Konstantinos Kefalianos
Special Effects : Taken by INK examples
Extra Help : Giorgos Belsis
I think the ink animation is beautifully executed as it expresses the abstract emotions exemplified by Memories. And in a way this could be a soundtrack about your past and how you try to resolve the demons that plague your mind, or the sense of loss that occupies all of us as we go through life. I guess this feeling is what drives people to hold on to something. In the rush of currents to our river of life. we look for that drifting object to save us. Sometimes, the result is negative but nothing is always certain in life isn’t it?
I don’t have additional details about the new album Empirico but I will surely keep you updated.
