Description

Almighty Zeus...LET'S TURN UP THE JUICE!!! ;o) According to the writings of Plato & Aristotle, the Ancient Greek Dorian Mode was the most "manly" of ALL the ancient Greek musical modes - it was even used to inspire bravery & courage in battle! So, for the VERY first time in 2500 years - the manly sound of the ancient Greek Dorian mode...THRASHED ON AN AXE!!?! !;o) The images in this video depict the most manly of ALL the ancient Greek conflicts...the Battle of Thermopylae, where in in August, 480 B.C, King Leonidas and the 300 Spartans, who along with 700 Thespians fought to the death against the Might of the entire Persian Army... The piece I am playing is a genuine fragment of ancient Greek music from the 2nd century CE, by Mesomedes of Crete, called "Hymn to the Muse"...I just hope, for the sake of my poor mortal Soul, that the Muse IS amused by this surreal little "musical" experiment!!!
