"The Light of Words" by Mikael Delta
On Friday 23 September, 2016, at 20.30, "Panos Street" Publications and Linto Organisation present you "The Light of Words" by Mikael Delta, on Linto rooftop with free entrance.
Mikael Delta is one of those artists that will not rest on one form of artistic expression. He is a composer, a lyricist and a singer and now he is presenting us with his thoughts in a book which includes texts that express a different contemplation/ attitude towards life- personal views that spring not only by spiritual concerns but also his experiences. The "Light of Words" is an awakening book. But it won’t stop there. It’s a book of the truth he represents, about all his ambient senses, the agonies, the satisfactions, happiness, love and the continuance, in which words give a key point to things, declare an outcome through their composition, exist in order to specify a condition, bare a philosophy, a belief that is defined with clarity, power and affirmation. The Light of Words is an affirmation of life- a wave, a force of life in which words are its companion, they enforce it, they define it with specific principles, values, relations and combinations of meanings. In a manner of speaking free from deviations, formulating a reality whose superiority hides in the freedom it poses.
In 1992, Mikael Delta along with Constantinos Vita and Antonis Pi formed Stereo Nova, the best Greek group according to the British Mtv, which used to combine imaginative electronic compositions with innovative verse full of emotion, and unique, melodic vocals, causing a commotion to the 90s music scene. He follows a solo career after 1997 and his music gains an international perspective, cooperating with music companies from France, England, Belgium and Germany. Working abroad triggers further experimentation. In Greece, singer Tania Tsanaklidou takes his verse to another level with her soulful voice. She unexpectedly matches with the sounds of a contemporary, rhythmic and erotic universe. The singer unexpectedly suits the contemporary, rhythmic sensual music universe.

In 2010 he was awarded by the Greek Cinema Academy for the Best Innovative Music Composition for the film Strella by Panos Koutras.
Mikael Delta with his music explorations and his introspection turns to new directions. Self-awareness and attempts of excess, the need of knowing the destination of life, are accompanied by conclusions, recommendations, words that mean/ mark/ define/ reflect a bright shape of reality. "The Light of Words" reveals the artist’s evolution- what he reaped, what was imprinted, what was an inspiration and formed a decision in Michalis Delta’s mind. It has been published by Panos Street Publications and has in six months had six publications.
The opening speech will be given by Martha Artapiridou, a European Culture Historian and an Art Curator. Modern Art exhibitions, thematic events about culture, text on artists and writers work, publications on art and presentations at academic conferences are some of her projects.
