Introducing the debut solo album, "Phaethon, Becalmed," by a member of Berlin's alternative pop band, All The Luck In The World. This project draws inspiration from the Greek myth of Phaethon, who sought to prove his parentage by driving his father's Sun Chariot across the sky, inadvertently causing ecological chaos and meeting a tragic end.
Collaborating with Echo Collective on strings, Ramon Lormans on tuned percussion (Stargaze), and Andrew Dickinson on vocals (Dt. Oper), the album comprises 17 pieces that intricately weave together to narrate Phaethon's tale. The instrumentation includes piano, strings, synths, and electronics, creating a calm and relaxed musical atmosphere.
The album unfolds like a story, with interwoven themes marking each chapter of Phaethon's journey. The diverse musical palette captures the essence of the myth, offering a tranquil and immersive listening experience. "Phaethon, Becalmed" invites listeners to explore the narrative through a blend of classical and contemporary elements.
This project goes beyond a mere musical release, offering a thoughtful exploration of myth and storytelling through sound. It's a unique opportunity to engage with a rich tapestry of emotions and experiences. "Phaethon, Becalmed" is more than just an album; it's a reflection on mythology, brought to life through the artistry of its creators.
