Sentinel Eye Steel Stylianou

For Alto voice, Flute/s, Violoncello, Percussion and Electronics Live recording Ensemble SCRAM at the “Wasserspeicher” Arts Festival Resevoir VII

The vast echoes on this recording are due to the cavernous circular structure of the venue which had nine seconds of echo from all round.

The sentinel is the silent watcher within all beings the part of man that sees and knows.

Whatever the personal ego may be indulging in the silent watcher sees all, and knows this is only a momentary lapse as all past lives are remembered within this aspect of being.

The silent sentinel is the ever present root of being, only interesting itself in the dealings of the personality once this begins to develop the nobler aspects of its nature.
