New Elusive Aura single; Prayer. 

This year has been rough for all of us. But music has offered may a ray of hope, and a glimpse of beauty within the chaos. I hope you will find some of that in the new Elusive Aura single "Prayer".

t seems hard to speak of 'Prayer' without some things getting lost in translation. Sometimes we hear it; a half-heard whisper of the vast world's unspoken language. Then it disappears. 'Prayer' is a plea, a desperate and life-long yearning to hear it again. If only once more.

Solo Suite Sequel; A Quiet Place, Part II 

Hello, friends and guitarophiles, 

I'm delighted to announce the release of my new suite; A Quiet Place, Part II. 

Five movements; a restrained ominous tone, yet with a slight speck of hope. A Quiet Place part II fluctuates within uncertainty and optimism. 

Five months after the release of A Quiet Place, I search for a comforting thread. As always I find consolation in music. A Quiet Place Part II is a subtle battle between darkness and light; unrest and peace. 

I'm thrilled to be able to share it today with you. 

You can listen and purchase the digital album on my website and all major digital platforms (Amazon, Spotify, etc...).

New Solo Suite; A Quiet Place 

Hello, friends and guitarophiles, 

I'm delighted to announce the release of my new guitar suite; A Quiet Place. 

Comprised of four parts with an unsettling aura and a gloomy tone; A Quiet Place delves into a state of hush detachment. 

I composed A Quiet Place in the first weeks of April 2020, touched by the recent global events; and recorded it shortly after in an attempt to tap into that emotion. I'm thrilled to be able to share it today with you. 

You can listen and purchase the digital album on my website and on all major digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify, etc...).

Ithaki; New Solo Album is Out 

I'm delighted to announce the release of my second solo album, Ithaki

Ithaki is a concept album, and it consists of seven original compositions for classical guitar with a general thematical substance; the personal journey of self-exploration and realisation that we are called to carry out in our life's adventures, hopes and fears. 

It is partly inspired by the famous poem by Konstantine Kavafis and the ten-year voyage of Odysseus as told by Hommer. But similarly to every kind of knowledge or experience that we assimilate, the only way for it to have any meaning at all is through deep personal involvement and lots of mistakes!  

I composed Ithaki during an intense two-week process but took me almost a year to grasp its meaning.

I'm thrilled to be able to share it today with you. You can listen and purchase the digital album on my website and all major digital outlets (iTunes, Spotify, etc...).

From Foreign Lands (Anatolia) 

"Από ξένο τόπο” or "from foreign lands" is a traditional song from the greeks of Anatolia. It seems to be a quite suitable and natural piece to work an arrangement for my time in Kraziai - Lithuania since I'm not only away from my homeland but also from my family in Berlin. Therefore it quickly became the soundtrack of our stay here at this Art Residency together with my new friend and great artist Matthias Jun Wilhelm.

Mournful Hymn 

Music can be quite a spiritual experience, this Sunday I went to the church in Kraziai - Lithuania. In spite of the subfreezing temperature, the woman who was playing the organ kept singing this mournful hymn even a few minutes after everybody has left the church. The moment stayed with me and here is my interpratation.

Sheet music available for download! 

New site is up and it comes with lots of cool updates!
