Collected works by the noted Greek improvising musician Floros Floridis, spanning a period between 1989 and 1991. Half the tracks on the album are actually more organised compositions rather than improvisations. Two among them are based on ´Silence´ by Edgar Allan Poe, where Floridis builds up a brooding atmosphere on assorted clarinets and electronics while the well-known actress and director Roula Pateraki reads her adaption of the original text in Greek.

The improvisational pieces contain some of the best music of its kind ever recorded here: a duet with Carlos Zingaro, a trio piece with Paul Lovens and Jean-Marc Montera, and a sextet with locals Michalis Siganidis (double bass), Michalis Lapidakis (piano), Dimitris Polyzoidis (violin), Yiannis Mourtzopoulos (electronics) and Dimitris Magriotis (cello). Floros on alto sax and bass clarinet helps to shape the inventive and imaginative climate that prevails throughout.
