Lyra Pi from DeWalta is five synthesizer and score-like modern ambient works that mark the first release of a new series by Meander. The Meander Horizon Pi Series is a departure from the label's well known dance floor releases. Lyra Pi is also the second part of the complementary Lyra album project. The full album contains a double LP (Lyra (MEANDER 025LP, 2018)) as well as the present album. Combined with the separately available Lyra double LP, customers can create a three-LP box set. Lyra is a constellation in the northern hemisphere which is highest in the midnight sky in the early summer months. It contains one of the brightest stars in the sky: Vega. Many of the songs on this album were produced during these warm and gentle months during an inspirational creative time in Portugal. In Greek mythology, Lyra represents the Lyre of Orpheus, Apollo's son. Made by Hermes from a tortoise-shell, it was given to Apollo who then passed it along to Orpheus. It is said to be the first music instrument ever made. 180 gram vinyl, handmade see-through screen-printed PVC sleeve, plus insert card with artwork.
