Katà Métron is the Greek mythology-inspired collaborative album from Italian ambient auteurs ILUITEQ and
Lorenzo Montanà. For ILUITEQ, Ancient Greek culture, with its myths and philosophy, has strongly influenced
their everyday lives and has provided constant inspiration in their musical endeavors. The Greek expression
"Katà Métron" means "according to the right measure," representing how human beings should live in harmony
with themselves and nature. More often than not, the dominant model is to go beyond our limits, and
having a "sense of measure" is not capitalistically profitable as we must nourish our constant desire to always
wish for more, not caring for the consequences of such a "bulimic" attitude.
Lorenzo Montanà should need little introduction, with a more than two-decades-long career, a vast body of
work on labels such as FAX and Projekt, and highlighting such collaborative partners as Pete Namlook and
Alio Die. ILUITEQ approached Montanà as they admired his textural take on ambient. The duo presented the
Greek mythology concept in which they might collaborate, and Montanà became instantly inspired to participate.
Montanà's contributions to "Katà Métron" shape the sound of ILUITEQ in new, evocative music territories,
where meticulously crafted rhythmic patterns and melodic echos blend with the Italian duo's soothing
and ethereal ambient soundscapes. Learn more about ILUITEQ
