DAEMONIA NYMPHE released their Lullaby project EP based on “Witches’ Lullaby” on Bandcamp on the 31st of March and it will be released on all digital platforms on the 8th of April 2021. The Bandcamp release also includes the original track “Witches’Lullaby” which was the inspiration for this project. Videos so far about the project can be seen at this location.
“Witches’ Lullaby” was originally composed for the play Macbeth, which was staged at the National Theatre of Northern Greece, directed by Anastasia Revi.
In the play, this melody represented the Shakespearean witches, these enigmatic and dangerous beings who manipulate Macbeth and make us wonder if they are, in fact, the Fates.
The lullaby is a melody that symbolizes birth; a new life. Even in ancient Greek mythology life was influenced by the Fates, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. The first represented the present, the second the future and the third the past, all that has happened and cannot be changed.
Lullabies have their own inner strength which can follow a soul on its journey into this world. At the same time lullabies change depending on who is singing them, when the protective force they emit have a different starting point and carry different dreams…
So, based on the melody of the original lullaby, (the dark lullaby of Shakespeare’s witches) which we composed for the play, we intended to create four original lullabies. All five artists involved in this project, had the freedom to create their own lullaby, giving it different meanings each time. Japanese Hattis Noit, Spanish Priscilla Hernandez, British/Portuguese Victoria Couper in collaboration with British/Turkish Reyhan Yusuf and Greek Evi Stergiou, convey through their voices a memory of their own tenderness, strength and hope.
