"RIVER OF FORGETFULNESS" (film soundtrack compositions - work in progress)
I used as additional instruments a "Irish Tin Whistle" (six-holed woodwind instrument / brass tubing), an "Irish Bouzouki" (four course/eight string), a clavietta (Wind Piano), guitars (twelve and six strings guitar, electric bass), Roland XP-50 workstation, Shure 55SH Series II microphone... and a lot (two nights) of improvisation.
Drinking from the river Lethe ("forgetfulness" or "oblivion") caused complete forgetfulness. Some ancient Greeks believed that souls were made to drink from the river before being reincarnated, so they would not remember their past lives.
The Rivers of Hades.
In Greek mythology, Styx (Στυξ) is a river which formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld, Hades. It circles Hades nine times. The rivers Styx, Phlegethon, Acheron and Cocytus all converge at the center of Hades on a great marsh. The other important rivers of Hades are Lethe and Eridanos.
