1 – Mikas – Explorers (The Experience Mix) (54:22)
The experience mix travels through time and space. This voyage has been carefully put together to stimulate the listener mind and induce an emotional response.
2 – Mikas – Explorers (8:00)
Explorers evoke hope, love and adventures. This unique piece begins with acoustic instruments, electronic key to then reveal a mix of ethereal synth and bells. The experience progresses like waves on a distant shore. The sonic territory is soft but intense, culminating with a plethora of cosmic-like ambiences.
3 – Mikas – Atmosphere (9:01)
Atmosphere is a grandiose ceremony in a distant world. Deep vibrations open the celebration in style with brass elements setting the scene. The powerful orchestral element draws a romantic story enhanced by keys in Vangelis style. The aerial melodie, keys and strings elegantly sway into the second orchestral part that fades after an impactful appearance.
4 – Mikas – Cairo (4:13)
Cairo embodies faith and the pursuit of glory. Guitar-like plucks provide an ecstatic start to this mysterious piece. Minimal drums are layered seamlessly to create movement and add a dimension. The bridge features tubular bells, rich pads and string. The middle section is a pure blend of acoustic and electronic elements with minimal percussions. The last segment embraces a superb string section before the final closing.
5 – Mikas – Mars (3:06)
Mars is about ambition and building the future. In an atmosphere of suspense, somber percussions emerge from the darkness like a spaceship approaching its destination. The momentum builds into the main part, featuring drums and ambient synths filled with emotions. The ending is like a new beginning.
6 – Mikas – Around The Sun (8:23)
Around the sun is a journey through seasons in space. Majestic cellos induce a calm melancholic ambience. Electronic elements emerge and take over with sonic clarity. The voyage then drifts into deep space with smooth pads and heartbeat that resembles the passing of time. The third phase sees the spring appear with strings and electronic elements signifying the return of life. The song ends with a soft melody and a solitary tuba.
7 – Mikas – Saints (5:37)
Saints are the half human half god that wander the hearth. The impactful drums, vibrant chords and eclectic plucks constitutes the onset of that journey. Evolving drums and chimes create surreal ambience adding a dreamy motive. The final features dramatic melody and accelerating effects.
8 – Mikas – Luna (5:09)
Luna is the creative world within. The vibrant string parts instantly immerse the listener and entice them to follow the emotional journey. Embodied by electronic melodies and deep bass pads, the dramatic cello comes back one last time to complete this trajectory toward the moon.
9 – Mikas – Oval (4:44)
Oval is an exploration tale of our mysterious world. Lush pads and ambiences relay the story with the orchestral elements. The main bridge features dreamy melodies layered with smooth strings and pads. Minimal percussive notes provide support to the evolving synth. Bells like sounds emerge at a mid point adding a enigmatical touch to the orchestral presence.
10 – Mikas – Blue (5:44)
Blue explores the outer layer of our galaxy. Introduced by an imaginary strummed instrument, the parts then evolve with orchestral strings and tubular bells sounds. A flute melody then makes its appearance along electronic arpeggiated sounds. The main part features a tuba solo that merges into electronic elements along with plucked synths and ambiences.
11 – Mikas – Dimensions (6:40)
Dimension is an open door onto other worlds. Multiple orchestral elements constitute a smooth but uplifting introduction. The bridge introduces silky keys with a layered melody to induce complete weightlessness. The main component is a hypnotic synth evolving along strings and pads. They progress into the second bridge in harmony featuring orchestral elements which slowly fade away to bring you back to your original dimension.
