Album Notes
In Greek Mythology, Amaltheia is a nymph or a goat who raised Zeus the God of thunder. Pan, half God half Goat, is the God of the wilderness. There are many different stories of Pan’s birth and antics. As the son of Amaltheia’s goat, Pan was raised in a cave with Zeus. Another story says Pan and Arcas were the twin sons of Zeus and Callisto a nymph who was changed into a bear. In yet another story, Pan helped Zeus after his sinews were stolen by the guardian of the sacred oracle at Delphi. Pan often plays a panpipe or a syrinx that can put anyone to sleep. A Labyrinth is a maze with only one path in and out. The version often seen in Crete, where Zeus and Pan were said to have been raised, has seven corridors.

The four notes F G C and E-flat are a call to Pan (although it is unlikely that these were the exact notes used by the Greeks). All of these pieces relate to these notes. Tracks 1, 4, 5 and 14 are played on the alto flute and track 6 is on the glass fife. Tracks 7, 13 and 14 were recorded in a rainstorm and track 9 was recorded in my garden.

musical mythology
I hadn't heard a lot of the mythology that goes with the program notes but the music makes me feel like I met these Gods/characters in person. Or that the flute player had. Magical.
