CD In the wake of the Phoenicians Milan Zdravkovic
With its different moods - sensuous, soft, bewitching - the magic of In the Wake of the Phoenicians resembles a journey of initiation. Each port of call is the pretext for a different stage in the development of the musical itinerary, which thus begins to sound like a metaphor of eternal landscapes, a pictorial allegory painted by a
contemporary artist using ancient colours with a futurist varnish. Sometimes a chant rises like a muezzin's prayer or a siren's song, or a touch of flamenco or a Sardinian motif suddenly emerges mischievously, then a swaying rhythm appears before vanishing into the swirls of the synthesizers.
By mixing ancient and modern, eminently contemporary electronic sounds with traditional instruments and vocals, In the Wake of the Phoenicians plays with every shade of blue in the Mediterranean ; this music is the soundtrack of a luxury cruise that touches on the universal.
