2013 December 7: The Andromeda galaxy was named from the Greek mythology and it is the closer spiral galaxy to ours. The distance between Earth and Andromeda is more than 2 million light years. (The "light year" is a measure of distance, not of time. The length of a light year is equal to 10 trillion kilometres, or 6 trillion miles). If we travel with a spacecraft with the speed of 17 kilometres or 10.5 miles per second (this is the speed of Voyager 1) and the galaxies were still, a trip from Earth to Andromeda would last 38 billion years. As the Andromeda galaxy is approaching "Milky Way" (our galaxy) with the speed of 110+ kilometres per second, both galaxies are expected to collide in about 3.75 to 4.5 billion years. As you see, the trip became already shorter. But no trip is shorter than imagination. The music track "Andromeda" is a virtual journey from Earth to Andromeda, in almost 4 minutes. Let the music guide you and admire wonderful spacescapes from all over the universe through artists' impressions. Most of the video parts used in the video of "Andromeda" are downloaded from ESA-Hubble. The photo of the front cover and the wallpapers is a work by Robert Gendler.

The selection of symbols on the cover and the video aims to complete this message: While the man who prays is waiting for a response from God, the legendary "Thunderbird" (the "bearer of happiness" according to the Indian tradition) rewards him wishing for eternal life (symbolized by the butterfly) and happiness (symbolized by the sun).

The paragraph below is a quote by Utidanos:
"On June 7th 2011, in Gythio, Greece, my beloved companion came to the end of her life after a tragic and sudden loss of health. The great love of my life, the "butterfly" as she called herself, gave me so much and she still gives to me, like a miracle. She chose me as her co-star. I was by her side for the last three difficult months, trying to lighten her burden. Everything she shared with me and I experienced in the last act of her life -in our final journey together- was the opportunity for the "Prayer" to be written. It is dedicated to her beautiful and holy presence".

2012 January 7: "Untold stories of a dying moon" is the latest album by zero-project which combines different styles of music. From ambient to darkwave and from piano music to electronic, keeps a sense based on moonlight-filled piano melodies. From the sentimental "The secret passion" to the dramatic "Into the darkness" and from the nocturnal "Moonlight No. 1" to the passionate "Romance", this album is a music trip among the feelings which appear from the darkness and fulfill with colors our existence. But the main question is: "Can you see the colors into the darkness?"... The weak light of the moon can help you on finding your own answer. Search into your own darkness and you may find your own colors, your own feelings, because the darkness is the vail of feelings and colors. Feelings we have felt, or feelings which are waiting for us to feel them. If you want to read the story behind this album, you can visit the interview page. The song "Appassionata" was based on a poem by Lilian Bourani:
which no longer fits
into this night.
Half of you is missing
and you are hiding your other half
behind the passers’ shadows.
So long has passed since I last
lit such a full moon
in order to make you desire of me".

2011 May 1: "Agnus Dei" is a Latin phrase, used in several classical parts and "masses" (sacred choral parts). Its meaning is "Lamb of God". This phrase refers to the relationship between human ("lamb") and his leader ("shepherd"), God. Although "Agnus Dei: Prepare yourself" is a trance song, I tried to express the mystical sense of the phrase, expanding its meaning with the thought that we should be always prepared for the next stage, whatever it is. This song was created in 2008 and after a major improvement to its melody and production it is available again. Prepare yourself.
2011 April 15: Listening to older songs, I always find things that should be corrected. How would it be if we could do the same in our life? Even better, if there was an "undo" button so we could change the past? Unfortunately or not, the "undo" button exists only in the digital world... So, don't look back, grab the opportunity of learning from the mistakes and keep flying. New versions of "Celtic dream" and "Sarabande" are available for listening and downloading.

2011 March 12: The seven deadly sins instituted by Pope Gregory in the 7th century while the Church was single and indivisible, as the schism between East and West occurred in 1054. According to Pope Gregory, the seven deadly sins are: Lust, wrath, gluttony, greed, envy, sloth and pride. In 2008 the Vatican by a circular signed by the Pope Benedict XVI renewed the list and added seven new deadly sins, which are: the human genome surgery, drugs, environmental pollution, social and economic injustice, shameless wealth accumulation, pedophilia and abortion.

2011 February 19: "e-world" means "electronic world". This album is a wavering trip between the world created by man and the world created by nature. It is a trip from the human madness (expressed with "Psychodrama") to the natural calmness (expressed with "Ocean trip"). On the other side, technology allows us to admire the beauty of the real world (with "Moon flight" and "Beyond earth"). This alternation of music senses, does not give a specific answer to the question "What is better? Living in an e-world or living in a real world?" but motivates the listener to give his own answer. The saxophone in the tracks "Moon flight" and "Beyond earth" is played by Dmitriy Samoylenko.

2010 November 20: With the first "Fairytale" album, a dream was reached. Dreams are born to guide us to paths of expectations, encouraging us to continue existing. But, what happens if you reach your dream? It is not a dream anymore because it has been turned into reality. I wonder, if the most fatal thing that could happen to a dream is to be reached. Maybe, for some dreams, it is better to remain unattainable. However, you can continue with a new one... The album "Fairytale 2" goes one step further than the first "Fairytale". It is a more complicated music story, influenced by the stories of Antiscamp, the creator of both "Fairy Tale" and "Fairy Tale 2" add-on mods for the game "Civilization".
2010 September 20: There were some loading problems with the guestbook, so, I decided to install a new one. The messages of the old guestbook are not lost. They are kept in my computer. But mainly they are kept in my heart. The old guestbook is available here.

2010 July 3: The meaning of the word "Infinity" is indeterminate and does not cause the same feelings to each one of us. Discovering the limits of our known world and the immenseness beyond it, our thoughts become confusing while we are searching for an answer. The words "infinity", "chaos", "cosmos", "universe" could create feelings of wonder, emptiness, calmness, even confusion. Through this work, I tried to present my own point of view: Self-awareness and positive energy, through a passionate musical expression. Welcome to "Infinity" version 1.0.
2010 April 24: If you like computer strategy games, you can play a free mod for "Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword" expansion, which is called "Fairy Tale", while listening to some "zero-project" music.

2010 April 17: Imagine that you are on a beach at sunset. While the colors of the sky are getting darker, the moon appears smoothly. Your heart is fulfilled with love and your mind is filled with calmness. This is "La luna".
2010 April 6: "Escape" is one the first rhythm tracks, composed back in November 2003. It was released at the end of 2007 and taken down in 2009. From now on a new version is available. There have been many improvements to the production, keeping as possible the sense of the first version.
2010 March 27: George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was a great German composer, known for his operas, concertos and oratorios (church music). One of his most famous compositions is "Sarabande in D Minor". "Sarabande" means "slow dance" and is one of my favorite classical works. This is my first effort to make a remake on such a work using both ambient and chillout styles. I hope you enjoy it.
2010 March 13: "Dream keeper" is a chillout lullaby, a smooth song for relaxing. This is my first effort on writing lyrics using simple words as simple the pure human feelings are.
2010 February 27: "On your waving hair" is a chillout song. It is a melody inspired by the lyrics of JB-Anastasia.
2010 February 1: Since I started composing and publishing music at the end of 2007, I had a little dream: To create a music fairytale, a story that evolves through music and has all the elements of an original fairytale: Fairies, knights, castles and -of course- a beautiful princess. Now, a couple of years later, this dream became true. The album "Fairytale" starts with a remake of "Winter princess", one of my early works. The music trip continues with a moon waltz and a fairy dance, through a forest with unicorns and a forgotten castle... After a battle with knights of the darkness, there is a king who returns home, giving his princess a message of love. At the end of this fairytale, there is an intro of Cinderella story instead of an ending, because, when a story ends, another one begins... Although "End of a story" is the ending song of the fairytale, it isn't the last song of the album. After a fairytale adventure, "Dreamland" is fine for relaxing... This is the second remake of an older song. I am thankful to "The Copyright Group" for allowing me to use the poem "Vita nuova" by Oscar Wilde in the song "Bless and glory". The poem was told by the actor Sean Barrett and recorded by Robert J. Nichol. The Cinderella intro voice belongs to JB-Anastasia.
"I stood by the unvintageable sea
till the wet waves drenched face and hair with spray;
the long red fires of the dying day
burned in the west; the wind piped drearily;
and to the land the clamorous gulls did flee:
Alas! I cried, my life is full of pain,
and who can garner fruit or golden grain
from these waste fields which travail ceaselessly!
My nets gaped wide with many a break and flaw.
Nathless I threw them as my final cast
into the sea, and waited for the end.
When lo! a sudden glory! and I saw
the argent splendour of white limbs ascend,
and in that joy forgot my tortured past".
