In Michail Travlos's second album dedicated solely to his own music, following on from the award-winning album PROGRESSIONS, he proves to be one of Greece's most interesting and convincing living modern composers. This album explores seven imaginative works. He has managed to create an exciting and often challenging personal voice that is always interesting and very appealing.

In NIGHT VISIONS the listener experiences works of diverse styles and aesthetic perspectives. Even though most of the work titles are derived from a non-musical origin, Travlos’s robust technique and fine-tuned elaboration of the music material ensure the preservation of the fragile balance between rationality and the sentimental nature, that governs the compositional procedure. Throughout the works, the common element in the composer’s view is the meticulous exploration of intervallic qualities in terms of texture and time. Through this microstructural point of departure, we see the composer’s intention to create soundscapes and inspired works, that are differentiated in terms of perception and form.
