May the birth of Christ fill our souls with love and a zest to help the ones next to us.
Elpis means hope in greek (hellenic).
I begun creating sketches of Elpis as part of an acoustic-electronic collaboration at the beginning of summer. As the days went by, I found myself getting immersed in the motifs that sprung. I tried to keep the piano track relatively airy so additional sound could fill up the space. By the end of summer, a friend of mine and exceptional violinist, offered to record a few tracks. So this is an acoustic version of Elpis. I hope you enjoy it!
