Himself as a child – Marios Frangoulis


Ι will hide myself for somedays but i will return soon



Όταν ήμουν παιδί είχα βρει έναν κήπο για να κρύβομαι εκεί απ’ τη ζωή όταν λείπω όταν ήμουν παιδί είχα κρύψει έναν ήλιο να ‘χει ο δρόμος μου φως κι η σιωπή μου έναν φίλο

Himself as a child he’s holding hands with
Over the same places life will take them tonight
They’ll be passing again by the houses of memory by empty seas, by the nets of fear

They’ll be passing again by the houses of memory by empty seas, by the nets of fear
They’ll stand together and see passing by like rivers the moments that never come back and the faces that have turned themselves into streets and centuries and the dreams that have dug through the years hideouts

when I was a child I had discovered a garden
So I could hide myself there whenever I’m absent from life when I was a child I had hidden a sun So that my way could have light Continue reading


To Help Digitize and Preserve the Sound of Stradivarius Violins, a City in Italy Has Gone Silent


The day will presumably come when the last Stradivarius goes to sleep, but by that time the sounds they made will still be wide awake in their digitized second life. And we can be certain, at least, that future generations will think of a musical use for them that we can no more imagine now than Antonio Stradivari could have in his day.


Ιταλία: Μια ολόκληρη πόλη «κρατάει την ανάσα της» για να σωθεί ο ήχος των Στραντιβάριους


We all have respect, even awe, for the name Stradivarius, even those of us who have never held a violin, let alone played one. The violins — as well as violas, cellos, and other string instruments, including guitars — made by members of the Stradivari family Continue reading

Μusica secreta and Canto Soave


Άκουσα χθες στο ραδιόφωνο ένα εξαιρετικό συγκρότημα και είπα να μοιραστώ μαζί σας κάποιες πληροφορίες, που ίσως δεν γνωρίζατε, όπως εγώ…

Το φημισμένο σύνολο Canto Soave παρουσιάζει μουσική από την Ιταλία του 17ου αιώνα.


The idea of a ‘secret’ music may seem somewhat strange to modern minds, but during the closing decades of the 16th century the Duke Alfonso II of Ferrara was so jealously obsessed with the singing and playing of his concerto delle donne, or singing ladies, that he allowed only chosen guests to hear them in his private concerts, known as the musica secreta.

Davidson Bruce …


“He seemed to know that it was the inner moment I was drawn to and not his clown face or physical appearance”

– Bruce Davidson

USA. Palisades, New Jersey. 1958. The Dwarf.


Bruce Davidson was 24 when he visited the Clyde Beatty Circus. In 1958, combined with the Cole Brothers and Hamid-Morton, the circus raised a gargantuan three-ring tent at the Palisades Amusement Park in New Jersey.

One spring morning Davidson headed off there at the suggestion of Sam Holmes, who was in charge of the picture library at Magnum Continue reading

Riders On The Storm: Ancient Clay Horse Heads Emerge After Heavy Rain In Israel


Many important archaeological finds are a result of chance events and good fortune. In Israel, two clay horses’ heads which once were part of equine sculptures have been found by sheer luck.


They were only uncovered because of heavy rains and floods which exposed them in the ground according to the Israeli Antiquities Authority. These artifacts come from two different historic periods and are allowing experts to understand the importance of the horse in these distinct eras. Continue reading
