I composed arranged and prepared the mixing by myself. Sound mastering was done by Costas Gitsis (Metric Sound Studio). It took me almost 4-5 years to finish this record because I wanted to present something innovating and satisfactory so I had to experiment with different arrangements, techniques of instruments and sounds. Instruments being used are mainly Oud, as a soloistic instrument combined with traditional as well as modern instruments as percussion, ney, thracian bagpipe, pontic lyra, gretan lyra, kanun, penny whistle, gretan lute, thracian lute, davul, violins, bass, as well as a lot of rhythm guitars.
