Matthews / Rives: arethusa (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    


"Perusing Ovid while translating a text on Ruben's Vertumnus and Pomonoa, I came across the story of Arethusa, a metaphorical tale of flight and transformation that speaks to the identity of the musicians on the the present CD, their artistic evolutions and their way of making music. Arethusa - a Nereid nymph and virginal servant of the Greek goddess Artemis (Diana the Huntress to the Romans) - takes a dip in a stream, not knowing it belongs to the river god, Alpheus. Smitten by her beauty, Alpheus pursues her with carnal intent. Arethusa flees but is unable to outrun the libidinous river. She cries out to Artemis, who quickly envelops her in a dense cloud, successfully hiding Arethusa from the god. Fear and the exertion of running cause her to perspire so heavily that, hidden in the fog, she gradually turns into a stream. Alpheus is eager to mingle his waters with hers, but Artemis opens a subterranean channel that bears Arethusa's stream to Otrygia in Sicily, where she becomes a fountain. For two expatriate musicians, this story speaks of attitudes towards change, perception and identity. [...]"-Wade Matthews, from the liner notes.
