While my guitar gently does not weep…


My dear friend Panagiotis brought me one day his old guitar with a broken head stock to do with her as I pleased, since her music days were inevitably gone.

And so I did…

Second chances… to breath life into the forgotten, unnoticed, retired from practicality… there seems to reside the notes of my creative chant.

And , to my immense joy, the guitar found her new place among Panagiotis and his family so emphatically…like she was always there.


Η παλιά κιθάρα του αγαπημένου φίλου Παναγιώτη ήρθε στα χέρια μου πληγωμένη, προς απόσυρση, σαν ύλη για μελλοντικές δημιουργίες.

Έτσι κι έγινε…

Δεύτερες ευκαιρίες…η ανάσταση & μεταμόρφωση του ασήμαντου, μη πρακτικού πια…εκεί φαίνεται ότι κρύβεται πυρήνας της δημιουργικής μου ωδής.

Προς τεράστια ικανοποίηση μου,  η κιθάρα βρήκε ξανά τη θέση της ανάμεσα στον Παναγιώτη και την οικογένεια του τόσο εμφατικά και φυσικά…σα να μην είχε φύγει ποτέ.

  1. Love it. It appeals to my admiration for ‘junk art’ (see Kurt Schwitters) and found objects + recycling +
    + music!
    The lighting shots are pretty magical aren’t they. I love the crystal touches. I have crystals on my shelf and around my desk and am always pleased to see them turn up in the pics of others.
    Such a good idea to turn a beaten guitar into a sculpture. I imagine now an exhibition space full with ex-instruments, all lit up, inviting us to listen to the music of our imagination! Bravo my friend, I was so curious about this from your little WIP ‘teaser’ posts recently.

      …thank you…
      You paint such beautiful pictures. And as you said, I can’t escape adding some magic!
      I absolutely love the exhibition scene…DEUS EX MUSICA
      Imagine if we could bring our creativity together in any fashion…
      Thank you again .
      I am a happy man.

      • Love the title of that exhibition now… DEUS EX MUSICA !!
        There was this cool gigging venue when I lived in England and played in bands, On the walls they attached beat up brass and wind instruments, plus a bass and snare drum, cymbals, and bits and pieces from a double bass guitar. It was an iimpressive sight with the artwork around it, made to appear jazzy or bluesy I suppose.
        Another place we played had vinyl records attached to the wall – like hundreds of dark and shiny eyes watching. Looked cool, and good use I think of old, scratched records.
