This is the third release for Doric and on this mini LP, Doric builts on his analogue rhythm box (the famous KR-55) a short story about alienation in six parts. All related and connected, these six songs describe a day of a daydreamer, forced to cope with routine and the vile, impersonal stage of socializing. This new age of “impersonalization” connecting with others but never quite communicating our wishes and wills, sums up to the title ”So Far, So Near”, a vast misinterprantion of other people's motives, as we are trapped inside our own havens; ourselves. This small personal nightmare, is synthesised with multilayered agility, using a MOOG ROGUE, a SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS PRO ONE and the MACBETH MICROMAC-D. All this obsessive use of analogue equipment has only one purpose: delivering an accurate, minimal but not simple description of Life as a concrete, empty, business transaction, full of unique circuits and paths, noone sees. Overall, this mini LP refers to temper/personality, as an inevitable hideaway of oneself, but yet impossible to maintain, as long as we are bound to norms that regulate superficial relationships. We are far but yet, so near.

ll tracks written/performed/produced by Stathis Leontiadis, 2014-15 in Athens.

Track Name: So Far,So Near
Your illusion is deep,
is as deep as the night.
You start seeing things
but not from this life...
So far,so near
Memories are clear
So far,so near
Illusion is your fear
Waking up in the night
feeling tired and dry.
Thinking “This isn't real!”
Start the shivers on your skin
So far,so near
Memories are clear
So far,so near
Illusion is your fear
Track Name: Sentiments
In our lives,it's hard to see it
In our lives,it's hard to feel it
Sentiments is all you have now
Sentiments in our final moments
Confused and dazed
In this final act
All that you represent is now gone
Everything is lost
Smoke and ashes
Travel to the wind
Ideal is gone
Track Name: Intruders
Intruders on their way!
They want to take our place!
Our souls on their hands!
They want you,to close your eyes!
Intruders on their way!
They want to take our lives!
Our souls on their hands!
They want to live inside of us!
