about

Eikènai is a mysterious project, mysterical, which sinks into ancient popular music, the music that disappeared because of its non-written nature.
Eikènai is an ethimological project: it means, in ancient greek, “to appear”, “to be similar”. But here you can see this word in latin alphabet. Moreover, the word features also the signifier of the ortodox visual culture, because in the past centuries it became “Icon”.
Eikènai has no words, no names. The icon painters never signed their works.
Eikènai is a visual project: the only word which represent it is a word related to the images, the sacred images without time, which are only space.
Eikènai is a non-visual project, because it is only music, time, with no space.
Eikènai is a synthesis between ancient music and contemporary music: there are only true instruments, played live, in its music, like lutes, trumpets, acoustic guitars, gongs, accordions, percussions, but filtered with digital, electronics and analog effects.
Eikènai is a collaboration project between two different artists coming from two differents part of Europe: they looked for an hybrid sound, which can synthesize different cultures, but on a common ground, a primeval sound shared by all the cultures of the world and its deep nature.
Eikènai is released by DNA Collective in physical format: C60 tapes with handmade package, artwork printed on heavy paper, handnumbered, limited to 20 copies.
