A song from my first solo album “Never & Nothing” [Pote & Tipota] with poems by Elias Petropoulos
This album was first released by Virgin/EMI, in 2000
and later rearranged and produced with Oannes, re-released in 2004.
It was our first collaboration before forming …MK-O!
• Composed, arranged & performed by Marina Kanavaki
• Poems: Elias Petropoulos
• Rearranged and produced by Marina Kanavaki and Oannes
…with my very sincere apologies to Elias [who is no longer living thus unable to scold me] here is a translation of his poem.
Kimame vathia… / Deeply I sleep…
I sleep deeply and dream
and I see me in a coffin.
It seems, I was killed by a car
so someone else has the criminal liability.
I wake up agitated
and open the Oneiromancer [dream decoder]
which interprets my nightmare
as imminent success in love.
[The male voice at the beginning of the song is Elias’ voice recorded on my answering machine]
