M.A. Tiesenga + AIYYER

Aquarius & Aquila is a microtonal homage to the ascension / abduction of Ganymede by the Aetos Dios, the eagle of Zeus, for hurdy-gurdy and electronics.

“Ganymedes [who] was the loveliest born of the race of mortals, and therefore the gods caught him away to themselves, to be Zeus’ wine-pourer, for the sake of his beauty, so he might be among the immortals.”

Homer, Iliad 20. 232 ff
