On Mati:
"I composed it in the aftermath of the tragic fire of 24 July 2018 that engulfed the tiny seaside village of Mati, in the Athens region, claiming so many lives, including whole families. The piece was initially written for the piano but I wasn’t happy with it. Another voice was needed. I approached Thanasis Polykandriotis who came on board to combine the sound of the bouzouki with that of the keyboard. The bouzouki is a folk instrument that fell out of favour for a long time in Greece before gaining the recognition it now enjoys. A type of lute with a very refined sound, its plucked notes contrast with, as well as complement, the sound of the piano’s hammered notes. Although Mati may seem somewhat detached from the other pieces on the album, it blends perfectly with the feelings I wanted to express overall." – Alain Lefèvre
