Trance music is international and has no limits.

The "OMADEON" music band was formed in 2006. Originally it was a one-man-band, then it expanded to a group: WinterSwimmer (author of this site), DJ Sotos (also known in Athens Clubs as "Mr. Paranoia") and his brother Peter; in cooperation with others, such as DJ and producer DJ E-styles (CLICK HERE for his own SoudClick page ) .

Our main "real work" (in music) is official cooperation with the great Greek music composer Mikis Theodorakis, remixing and re-inventing melodies and rhythms to enhance our famous friend's best compositions, turning them into Trance Music for global Club dancing.
The "Mikis Trance Remixes" are NOT included in this site, yet (at the time of writing), except one short demo-remix (Mikis-Trance 1).

In early 2007, other band-members have gradually ceased to participate, due to other professional obligations, so the band name "omadeon" again refers to a one-man-band (at the time of writing). The only active colleague (in "stadby status") is now DJ E-styles, who occasionally does sound-mastering; also new collaborators (but not band members) now include DJohn-G (John Gavalas), DJ Konstadino (from "Anoiksi Remix"), and others.

If you can read Greek, click HERE (and scroll down) to see a signed reference letter from Mikis Theodorakis, about this work.

Why this name?
The word "omadeon" was chosen by the founder of the team (WinterSwimmer, some years ago) because "omada" is Greek for "group" or "team". (WinterSwimmer: "I am only a founder; not a leader!").
Do you play live?
We don't play live (yet), partly because of the nature of our work, done mostly with PCs and a few hardware synths. However, DJ Paranoia has played live (as a DJ) in several Greek Clubs, during the late nineties, till very recently, while our friend DJ-estyles (Click HERE for his MySpace pages) plays almost every week as a DJ accompanying a variety of different Greek bands.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's an important positive aspect of so-called globalisation. Even poor kids in remote villages can now download or share many thousands of mp3's, which are rapidly changing (and improving) their musical tastes and sensibilities.
The music industry must understand this process better, if it wants to survive. However, the "industry" is a lesser issue, compared to our global musical culture and civilisation, which is by far the most important thing (for us as a band, as well).
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
We hope to sign such a contract with the label of our friend (the great Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis). However, major labels have to adapt to global change (including price reductions and downloads). We plan to propose to Mikis that paid downloads are used, instead of CD production (which is more costly and has other difficulties).
Band History:
We are a new band, and I don't want to bore you with my personal history (hehe)! Anyway... Anybody who's read Carlos Castaneda (as an... adolescent pass-time, like I did) knows that "personal history" must be forgotten: -It supresses spiritual freedom! However, if other band members want to write anything historical, we'll do it after a democratic decision in our next meeting.
Your influences?
First of all, I (WinterSwimmer) can mention my own: DJ Tiesto (as a recent trance-star), Robert Miles (as the founder of an innovative stream), Jean Michel Jarre (the GodFather of Electronica), Faithless, DJ Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, and many others.
Favorite spot?
Venezuela (speaking personally), Margarita island (in particular). However, I've never been there, yet! (LOL)
Equipment used:
Many PCs, equipped with relatively decent sound production cards, as well as some hardware synths:
The Yamaha Motif 6 is my own preferred personal instrument, together with a (toy-)Casio CTK-602L, and some other (mostly... worthless -hehe) keyboards, from the late eighties. As a group, we are working more and more with software synths and the (usual) modern VST technology, but the Yamaha Motif is an instrument that still stands out, as something completely irreplaceable by software! We also have access to outstanding musical equipment (e.g. Pro Tools) used by DJ Paranoia's brother in a commercial Music Studio, where he works as a Master Remixer.
Anything else...?
Well, we do have a vision (at least one): To transform much Classical Music into trance, while preserving its quality. For this reason, I decided to upload in this site some trance remixes of Johan Sebastian Bach, which I did recently as a joke (more or less) but they turned out much more serious than I expected! :)

Last (but not least) I have to admit that some of the music here is still incomplete, and it can still be improved! However, I decided to include it solely on the basis of ideas and innovations contained in it. An example of such a piece which -nevertheless- contains interesting innovations, is "Atlantean EcoTrance Insomnia".

Hm... we're so flooded by (other) work, nowadays, that our band's motto may well become:
(WinterSwimmer): 'Too much music, too little time'!
