about

Conceived as an incomplete sound-diary, The Windmill Syndrome is a series of solo works for electric guitar and electronics, by sound artist and multi-instrumentalist/composer Zviij (Franck Smith).

This first volume titled "Psithurism" (adaptation from Ancient Greek meaning "The sound of the wind whispering in the trees" or "The sound of rustling leaves") is a 21-part nocturnal piece between subtle electro-acoustic chamber music and imaginary ballet soundtrack.

Etymology: Ancient Greek ψιθύρισµα (psithurisma) or ψιθυρισµός (psithurismos), from ψιθυρίζω (psithurizō, “I whisper”), from ψίθυρος (psithuros, “whispering”, “slanderous”).

Composed & performed by Zviij / Franck Smith

Recorded & mixed in February 2016 (Brussels)
