Jay Glass Dubs: You can say what you want about Mikis Theodorakis, one of the most famous Greek composers in the world but this record is, to me,globally, one of the most successful examples of how poetry and music can be harmonically combined into something that constitutes a new kind of songwriting. Atonal elements, rembetiko, choral parts, spoken word, Thodorakis’ signature chordal and rhythmical progressions and most of all, the sublime language of Odysseas’ Elytis poetry compose a truly Avant Garde amalgam of unrepeated quality and beauty, that should be case study in the syllabus of every music academy in the world, or even better, taking into consideration the deeply humanitarian messages of the poems themselves, in every school around the globe. Simply paramount.
His sense of sound as an architectural structure, the prophetic instrumentation he is utilising, his constant dialogue with time and space as sonic elements combined with his political and aesthetic stance , formed a universal language that can not and will not be repeated ever again but is there for the taking, for generations to come.
