Konstantinos Papachristou
The Darkness of a Fairy Tale is the debut album of saxophone player and composer Konstantinos Papachristou, and describes the journey of a man that receives his wake-up call and begins an esoteric quest in an effort to find the true meaning of life. Konstantinos composed a contemporary jazz concept-album, with an often dark, programmatic intention, that allures the listener to dive deep into his senses. The arrangement retains an unrefined classic jazz sound, and the instrumentation includes a double bass, piano and drums that blend perfectly with the composer’s fat sounding, tenor saxophone and strong influence of the ECM Jazz label. Been a very creative person, Konstantinos loves music as well as High-End Audio, and he has been involved in various music projects, and has also designed High-End Audio Equipment for consumer and professional use. He supervised the whole production process of the album, and imprinted his personal standpoint in the sound of the album. Darkness of a Fairy Tale retains a live feel with the calmness and focus of a studio album, making it the best of both worlds. Darkness of a Fairy Tale is released in an aesthetic digipak audio-CD featuring cover art from the stunning original painting “Jours et Nuits No4” (acryl on canvas, 1996, Vangelis Papachristos) and also on every popular digital music store world wide.
