This week, the second recording session for The Island Bus soundtrack took place in John’s comfy kitchen/recording studio.
If you thought it’s all lyra down here in the Southern Dodecanese, you are partly right: the lyra does play a pretty huge role in the island’s music. But there is more. Have a closer look at the vintage photo of a local party from the 40’s and you know what I mean.
Yes, there is a violin player in the middle between all the dancers. I don’t know what he sounded like, but I can tell you, the sounds Pantelis Logothetis, who recorded for us this week, gets out of his trusty instrument make you really happy.
When he and and his equally talented sister Xenia are playing I actually just want to sit down, listen in and let the music take over…
But no use writing about it. One day soon you’ll be able to hear it all while watching The Island Bus take to the road – pardon: the screen.
Now it’s off to getting the re-mixes and re-interpretations done – and then even more exciting stuff can start:
The Island Bus rough cut!
I can’t wait – and you?
