Arhythmology is a story of rebirth and new beginnings.
Arhythmology is a word that pays homage to something old and essential. It has long been thought that western music originated in the time of Pythagoras – the ancient mathematician. Traditionally, he is thought to have invented – or better said discovered – the ratios between the musical intervals. And for the people of those ancient times, Arhythmology was the name of the sacred science which included music, mathematics, physics, chemistry and the astronomy that we know today.
Arhythmology is a story of rebirth and new beginnings. In the cycle of life, after every end there is a new beginning, but on an octave. Thus the circle becomes the spiral, winding upwards or sometimes downwards. In the same way, this album is the first step of this new cycle. And that is why the name was chosen – to unite a concept with a time and place. And isn’t music just that – a bridge, that joins the gaps between thoughts, feelings and people?
There have always been two kinds of music inside of us: the music inside our head and the music inside our heart. The first one we can hear, we can record, we can reproduce with minute detail. The second one however is something different. We all know of it, of course, but we spend life times trying to find it truly. Some might say it is one of the reasons why we do what we do.
Mihail Doman has felt that music too, just like everyone else. But he has always been animated by the desire to find it. And not just find it, but write it and perform it. So, without a formal education, but with a sense for self teaching, he set out on this quest. He went from friday-evening-with-friends troubadour, playing the guitar, to bass player for hire, playing in clubs, to neoclassical composer, writing music on his piano.
