Step into the world of AONIAN. The Greek producer releases a Mediterranean-inspired electronica track with ‘Gathering’
Greek-born, London-based producer AONIAN releases his latest single ‘Gathering’, an electronica track that blends Mediterranean soundscapes with contemporary dreamy synths carried by warm drum textures. AONIAN, a keen ethnomusicologist, combines organic elements such as the distinct sound of fellow musician Nicki Maher clarinet with ethnic soundscapes and lead analogue synths. The track also features a sample of Epirotic polyphonic choirs, an artistic choice by AONIAN to explore more traditional sounds from his home country.
When asked about the latest single, AONIAN commented by saying “The track ended up being called ‘Gathering’ because of the annual summer festivities and gatherings that mean so much to its people, communal moments that have been mostly frozen or altered due to the recent pandemic.”
