Story behind the song
In March 2006, I visited Mikis Theodorakis in his home and delivered to him a CD of seven remixes/remakes of his music. This particular song was second on the list, and contains some radical "alternative harmonic expansions" of the original music. I have not worked any further on this particular song since then, so it's technically imperfect but -I think- very interesting. (A letter of approval by Mikis Theodorakis about my work is included in my music home page).
Lyrics
This song's lyrics are a poem by Odysseus Elytis. My own English translation (and philosophical analysis) of this song's lyrics is in my blog, in a posting titled "The Archetypal Muse - Goddess in the poem i¿½Blood of Lovei¿½ (by Odysseus Elytis)" (click here).
