From YouTube: "'Dionysian Rant' - a realisation by Michael Atherton, performed Melismos (Philip South, Mina Kanaridis & Michael Atherton). Melismos was formed by Michael Atherton, Mina Kanaridis and Philip South to investigate the performance of ancient Greek music. The songs and instrumentals have been realised from surviving fragments by Michael Atherton and are performed on copies of original instruments. This item is conjectural dance music from Classical Greek Theatre. The double auloi (ancient oboes) were turned in maple by Harry Vatiliotis, Australia's master luthier."
