Elysium - Future Collaboration Album

I am delighted to announce an ongoing international collaboration between myself, the Egyptian film score composer, Remon Sakr and the Californian vocalist, classics scholar and multi-instrumentalist Bettina Joy De Guzman!

The album will at this stage, most probably be named "Elysium" (the temporary album cover displayed may be changed) - here is what Remon Sakr has to say so far about this project:

"I'm so much happy to announce about my upcoming album which will be released in the beginning of 2019 under a temporarily name "Elysium" (and may be it will be the final title).

About "Elysium", I collected musicians that I'm so much proud to work with, and I'm still working on collecting the rest of the musicians and these pictures are for the musicians who are existing in the album officially.

Ladies and gentlemen: let me introduce, my partner (Co-composer) and the Lyre Player Michael Levy - Composer for Lyre & the touchable angelic voice Bettina Joy De Guzman (Ancientlyric and lyra) and there is more musicians will join us of course -  I will announce about their collaboration at the suitable moment.

For who is asking about the meaning of "Elysium", this is a definition I copied from the Wikipedia:

"Elysium or the Elysian Fields (Ancient Greek: Ἠλύσιον πεδίον, Ēlýsion pedíon) is a conception of the afterlife that developed over time and was maintained by some Greek religious and philosophical sects and cults."

In short, Remon asked me to create four new melodic themes for a selection of some of my lyres, which he is in the process of 'deconstructing' and rearranging these themes.

Remon will also be adding the other-worldy vocals of Bettina; in order to attempt to weave together, what I am sure will be, a magical musical tapestry, with the goal of seamlessly fusing ancient and contemporary musical timbres.

This exciting new collaboration album will be released sometime early in 2019...the best things in life are worth waiting for!
