An Eagle Was Standing …
On this album Panos Charalambous collects field recordings, performance and installation documentations & contributions brought into this expansive project. Bringing together Mike Cooper & Tasos Stamou’s London Taximi, midnight recordings of jackals captured on Greece’s Mount Athos, Aggelos Krallis’ raw take on Misirlu, a rhythmic dance on glass cups under the distant sounds of a country festival, as well as voice-o-graph records containing voices and immigrant stories from the 50s, Charalambous pieces together a rich and manifold sound mosaic, reinstating neglected or unknown voices from the Balkan peninsula. The edition also includes an essay by Thanasis Moutsopoulos on the secret post-war history of folk music in Greece.
