Ubermensch

Πνεύμα

Τίποτα δεν είχε μείνει στο δωμάτιο παρά η υγρασία

του αναστεναγμού της, σαν πεφταστέρι ορφανό

στη φέγγος του ουρανού κλεφτό φιλί, ανοιξιάτικο

πρωί, μαλλιά ολόχρυσα στους ώμους, κυματιστά

σαν θάλασσα ερωτευμένη, λεπτή αχτίνα ήλιου έκλεβε

ματιές μέσα απ’ τη μισάνοιχτη πόρτα, αστραφτερό

νερό λιμνούλας εκεί που οι μονιάδες κατέφευγαν,

σαν του κομήτη την ουρά που είδες ή που νόμισες

πως είδες, η ήβη φλογισμένη, γλυκόπικρο ποτροκαλί

χρώμα ζωής, ξαφνιασμένο σαν την αναπνοή που κόπηκε.

Έβρεχε πολύ κείνη τη νύχτα που κανείς δεν άκουσε

το στεναγμό μας κι οι αμαρτίες μας ποιός ο σκοπός τους;

~ Μου αρέσουν όσοι δεν κρατούν για τον εαυτό τους μήτε

σταγόνα πνεύματος, αλλά προσπαθούν να είναι ολόκληροι

πνεύμα της αρετής.

Pneuma

Nothing had remained in the room but the moist

of her sigh, falling star, orphan in the gleaming sky

a stolen kiss, spring morning, hair golden on the shoulders

like waves of a sea in love, thin sunray, glance escaped

through the half open door, shiny pond surface where

the lonely took refuge, the comet’s tail you saw and

didn’t, her mound fiery, bittersweet, surprised like

her breath that stopped.

That night it rained so heavy no one could hear our

sighs and our sins, what was their purpose?

~ I like those who don’t keep for themselves even a drop

of pneuma, but struggle only to be pneuma of virtue.

Ubermensch, poetry by Manolis Aligizakis, Ekstasis Editions, 2013

Country Songs

mockART: Country Songs (cover)

I started working on Country Songs more than 10 years ago. I asked people of different countries to send vocal samples I could use for some new tracks. While working on the album I moved to another city, my computer broke, the new one couldn’t handle Photoshop and music software at the same time and so I prioritized photography. Therefore my project mockART took a long break. As you probably know, I already remastered the old mockART albums last year and republished them and I also recorded Living with Human Machines to get back into sonic experimentation. This year I finally found the time to remaster the tracks that were already recorded and to compose and record the missing tracks. So prepare for a journey into experimental sounds, structures and words.

You can download the full album from Bandcamp or stream it via Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon

Στο Καβούσι του Δήμου Ιεράπετρας στην όμορφη Κρήτη, ένα χιλιόμετρο νότια του χωριού, δεσπόζει η «μνημειακή», όπως την έχουν ονομάσει, ελιά του Καβουσίου.
