Time Travel (2016)

Time Travel is an acousmatic composition based on recordings of a Priest's voice and a male choir in the Greek Orthodox Church of St. Sophia, in Athens. It is my personal interpretation of the experience of being in an Orthodox Liturgy. Information about the actual space where the liturgy takes place is given throughout the piece as well. I consider this work as a 'travel' between the actual place and my own internal perception of the psalms and the mystery of the holy liturgy; using the priest's voice as a reference point. In addition, I regard this composition as a “travel” back to where Byzantine hymns first appeared: In the church of Haghia Sophia in Constantinople.
