Soft Light (Metier)

‘Soft Light’, the new album from Basil Athanasiadis, is a fascinating mix of Greek and Japanese influences.

Our CEO, Stephen Sutton, is “delighted to have signed a composer with such a unique and exotic blend of styles”.

Seven works composed between 2003 and 2017 which are characterized by an overall subdued, laid-back character, quietness and strong relations to several aspects of Japanese culture, from literature, haiku, Noh dance and the use of the shō. The Japanese aesthetic permeates all and creates a deep impression.
