Product Description

Byzantine Meditation by Antaeus

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

About the Artist

Antaeus, born and reared in Greece, emigrated to the United States at 17 and in 1986 graduated from California State University, Dominguez Hills, with a Bachelor of Science in Music Industry. During the 1992 Winter Music Conference, Antaeus received the "Best Disc-Jockey in Los Angeles" award. That year he also became a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the governing body for the GRAMMY awards. Since 1989 he has been involved in recording, remixing or production for a diverse selection of artists such as Young M.C., Falco, Lonnie Gordon, Def Jef, Malcolm McLaren, Yanni, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Herbert Gronemayer and Earth Wind and Fire. Antaeus remixes for The Boys and the Rolling Stones have respectively earned him platinum and multi-platinum plaques. His club-oriented projects - under the names Jeek!, Aar and Beat Pulse Mecca - were released by Tribal/IRS and ZOO/RCA records. In the mid-90’s Antaeus returned to Greece. Influenced by ancient Greek and Byzantine Music, he worked on a personal album titled "Byzantine Meditation". The chill-out soundscape that he created fuses voices, traditional instruments, electronica, hip-hop and drum ‘n’ bass. "Byzantine Meditation" was released in Greece in 1997 and it remained top-5 on the official Greek sales chart for several months. Over the next two years it successfully sold in many territories around the world. It has been variously described as "chill out music", "intoxicating sound scenery", and "music for body and soul". In 2000 Antaeus released "World Prayer", his second album. The Virgin Megastore official magazine raved: Few Greeks up to now have been able to make their presence felt in the international music world. One of them is Antaeus who… after the success of "Byzantine Meditation" in 1997, is back with "World Prayer". Sources of inspiration this time are religious from around the world, always with the enchanting atmosphere that Antaeus creates…" A sound, resembling the JV-1080 dulcimer sound Antaeus used in several tracks of "Byzantine Meditation", was incorporated by Roland, one of the world’s largest synthesizer manufacturers, into its XV-5080 synth module. The sound was appropriately called "Byzantine". "Byzantine Meditation" was re-released in Greece in 2003. As soon as his contract with Planetworks/Polygram expired in 2003 (and all master and publishing rights reverted to him) Antaeus signed with Monom Records in the U.S. Monom will release "Byzantine Meditation" for the American market in June 2004. The album has been re-mastered and four additional tracks have been added. Antaeus is currently producing his new CD which is scheduled for a September 2004 release, In July, Monom Records will release the first single "Victory" with the bonus track "Olympic Anthem", tributes to the summer Olympic Games in Athens Greece.

I was going to buy the album Zero4 and got drifted to this album, I bought both and I have been listening to it over and over again. Very beautiful music, vary calming and rythmic. If I had paid twice as much for these albums I would still think they were well worth it.

I love this album. It is something you can listen to over and over and not get tired of with the exception of song #3 which I skip. Ecclectic but COOL Greek music. I was introduced to it by a greek hotel's web site. I contacted them and they told me about it. Was NOT disapointed. Plan to get other CD by same artist.

I love Antaeus' zero4 and Byzantine Meditation CDs. That's chill electronica / world fusion at its best. I was looking for more Antaeus albums to buy and came across a death metal / satanist rock band using the same name. Their albums De Principii Evangelicum, Blood Libels, and Cut Your Flesh and Worship Satan are not from the guy who did zero4 and Byzantine Meditation. Different artist, different music. It's kind of like good vs. evil.

If you like Bali music you will love it! This guy rocks I would recommend it to all. Music choice is subjective. I like Bali, smooth Jazz, this is a good mix. Very good universal wordage..if you are christian fundamental, you will not like it.
