Apostolos Loufopoulos


The title means darkness, dusk in Greek. In ancient Greek and Roman (Erebus) mythology Erevos is mentioned as a place between the earth and the underworld, a place where day and night went in turns. The work reveals a world of imagination, in wich relationships and analogies differ from the reality. The idea of the piece refers to a journey between “natural” and “supernatural,” which is presented in the musical context through the combination of recognisable and non-recognisable sounds. Throughout the work, nature adopts different colours and characters: its materials are sonically placed in unfamiliar territories, while they are successively combined, revealing hybrid forms of matter and life. Erevos was completed in September 2002 at the composer’s private studio and at City University Electroacoustic Studios in London.
