Notes

  • Program notes: 

    In Greek mythology, Hypnos was the personification of sleep; the Roman equivalent was known as Somnus.

    Hypnos lives in a cave, whose mansion does not see the rising, nor the setting sun, nor does it see the "lightsome noon." At the entrance were a number of poppies and other hypnotic plants. His dwelling had no door or gate so that he might not be awakened by the creaking of hinges. The river Lethe, in the underworld, is known as the river of forgetfulness, and flows through his cave.
    Based on a 58 elements melodical serie, Hypnos is a suite of 7 moments dedicated to the memory of Bask singer Mikel Laboa.
