Aposmos is a word creation and stands for the separation and melting of life, the rise and the fall, the conqueror and the loser, who will start again from the beginning. On his travel through time and the countries of his past and present life, Vasileios met with different artist and musicians to produce his upcoming album. It contains a variety of musical short stories, a set of 13 different tracks, which paint a sometimes heroic, sometimes dark picture of what life can be about.
What Aposmos consists of
With Apomos I release my first official debut album. It took several years to complete it and without the inspiring collaboration with a variety of artists it would not have become as complete as it is. Aposmos stands for my journey through the world of different cultures, for people who I have met, who have formed me, for my family, who are scattered across countries, for my homeland, which has its origins in Greece. In 13 tracks it transports the diversity of nature and the rugged beauty of the Olympic Mountains, as well as the wild confusion of the big cities of Athens and Berlin. It is the mixture of calmness and savagery that fights in my heart, between retreat and stage. It's a purely instrumental album. The voices of the individual instruments manage to convey this up and down-track of my feelings better than any human voice can. I hope that the interested listener will like it very much and you will also find a nuance of your own life here and there.
