Socrates and Plato thought that the Earth (if you would look on it from the Space) looked like coloured football ball (Phaedo, 110b). Probably they listened to the music like this?
Michel Levy reinvents the music of the Ancient world and places it in new context. Yes, this music is played completely on replica of the Ancient Greek lyre (and sometimes it's hard to believe in it), but Michael Levy adds overdubs, echos, reverb, studio effects and music for the lyre turns into something new - it sounds as modern ambient space music with exotic scents and perfumes created with the help of ancient tonalities and sounds of ancient instrument. Because of it music by Michael Levy will be interesting for different kinds of listeners: to the lovers of ambient music and to those who like historically informed performances. If you like ambient - you can relax, close your eyes and imagine fantasic pictures of distant space. If you like music played on authentic insruments - you'll be amazed by possibilities of the Ancient Greek lyre once more and you'll imagine how it could sound with the natural acoustic ambience, with echoes.
Tracks “Made of Stardust”, “Methane Lakes of Titan”, “Transcendental Tapestry ”, “Solar Wind”, "Timelessness" are relaxing. Other tracks are sounding as bootleg records from live shows by Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix (if they were playing lyre).
“Ascension of the Lyre” is the album of its own genre.
