USM presents - Electronic Seikilos (Official Trailer)

The independent electronic platform USM, in collaboration with Greek artists, creates the project & digital music compilation “Electronic Seikilos”.

This compilation intends to promote Greek artists and feature the contemporary Greek electronic scene. USM aspires to highlight the research for electronic music, in an attempt to study and present sounds and melodies, composed by known- or not- artists. Simultaneously, this action will function as a stimulus for younger artists who want to come in touch with electronic music.

The first collection will be comprised by 12 tracks, by 12 Greek artists, and it will be accompanied by audiovisual material as well as interviews by the artists. The whole project will be filmed and presented as documentary.

Our goal is to offer the earnings from the sales of the compilation, for the purchase of synthesizers, drum machines and other electronic music equipment, which will be gifted to Elementary Music Schools all over Greece, in an attempt to bring young children closer to the digital sound and improvisation. The complete idea will be executed under total transparency, supervision and participation by the artists themselves. Workshops and other events will follow for 3 years after the release.

The name of the compilation is inspired by the ancient Greek synthesis of the track  “Epitaph of Seikilos”, which is saved till nowdays. It is an hymn whose lyrics suggest an exceptional stand towards life.
