The album consists of 10 musical compositions inspired by the poetry of Ntinos Christianopoulos, in which the composer dovetails her music with the simultaneous recitation of the poems by the poet himself; thus, Roosevelt highlights the emotional resonance of his poetry, through her own musical interpretation.
Her compositions, based on the piano, are enriched by the theremin, the most characteristic feature of May Roosevelt’s music. Lyrical melodies, elements of Greek folk-pop music and Byzantine church hymns are blended, thus echoing the literary pseudonym of the poet: “Christianopoulos” (the christian child), and capturing both the confessional aspect of his poetry and his existential angst.

highly personalized quality. She's also someone who brings an
above-average degree of imagination to her work [...] TEXTURA
