About Hestia Fields composition

«Hestia Fields» was composed by Anna Stereopoulou between September-October 2020, and it serves as an ode to ancient Greek Goddess HESTIA, inspired by her attributes and symbolism (Con-Centration: fire / hearth / family), or else, a wish for Unity and Strength. The work is part of the composer’s sound-art ‘diptych’, alongside «Ad Vivam Flammam» composition [release: 06 January 2021 | https://annastereo.bandcamp.com/] in honour of Hestia and Vesta Goddesses (Greek and Roman Mythology, respectively).

«The idea of getting inspired by Hestia Goddess, was born in Summer 2020, and during my correspondence with Chef, DJ, and dear friend, Spyros Tavianatos who was working in Santorini (Thira) island, at that time. Our conversations about the restriction measures set -in almost all sectors, worldwide- against Covid-19, and our common love for Music and Nature, helped me find the way back in staying focused on my Goal with a clear and strong Mind and Body!
HESTIA FIELDS worships the attributes of Hestia Goddess, as I imagined her (me) harvesting wine grapes from Thira’s volcanic earth and preparing a meal for the guests and Friends & Family to welcome them in my purified Home; into my Soul

About Contemporary Dilemma compilation

The present compilation consists of works by 20 Greek artists (+2 bonus tracks with the complete album download), following below, as they were invited by Dimitris Tsironis for 1TrackTape Records:

«(…) These two hours are full of great ideas that twenty (plus two “hidden”) musicians recorded exclusively for this collection. The modern dilemma concerns the non-resignation of a creator, no matter how strangely directed the external environment that envelops and drowns us all. These Greek contemporary artists respond with the best recorded material I have heard for years and produce an improvised and formless music scene genre. I hear them now that the project is completed after four months and I wonder if the moment of communication was so important or just random. We like the random case and enjoy it in what we call experimental music
Dimitris Tsironis, September – December 2020
