The word "eclipse" comes from the Greek "ekleipsi", meaning "abandonment." Quite literally, an eclipse was seen as the sun abandoning the earth.
In the past, the most recurrent embodiment of an eclipse was a dragon or a demon devouring the sun; ancient people would produce great noise and commotion during an eclipse, banging on pots and drums, to frighten away the monster.
Ekleipsi is a place where sounds produced in darkness are freed: we play in the womb of shadows, to frighten away our demons and bring back light. To know more about our project, please visit our website, or talk to us directly using our mail or IM contact.
