Basil Athanasiadis ‘Stray Cat’s Dream’

Basil Athanasiadis ‘Clouds That I Like’

In the boundaries between Zen meditation and silence with the divine vocal presence of Shie Shoji prevaling, Clouds that I Like portray the solid knowledge and skilfulness of the composer’s compositional technique by successfully combining two highly contrasting worlds (the Western and Japanese tradition) into a harmoniously balanced and musical result, which I believe will retain its freshness over time.
