Finally, after a year, I manage to find the time to finish this composition. I start working on this on October last year and I finish it this October, so the title “Mensis October” (October month in Latin) is appropriate! It is written for SATB choir and a small orchestra. There are also some body percussion parts (clapping, stomp). Bellow you can read my thoughts and inspiration about the video of this music. Read more
“…I get most Joy in life out of Music.” This famous quote from Albert Einstein together with the firsts notes of Handel’s Recorder Sonata in G minor, inspired me to create this wallpaper. I am willing to create a series of wallpapers about the Joy of Music. We’ll see!”

Bellow you can listen to Damijan Mocnik’s“Verbum Supernum Prodiens” performed by Vocal Inventions directed by Olga Alexopoulou. Vocal Inventions is a vocal ensemble at Athens, Greece that I am a proud member of.
Merry Christmas with this new piece I wrote for Christmas. I started composing it last year but I didn’t manage to finish it on time. So this year It was easy for me since more than half of the composition was ready.
The painting is “Christmas Eve” (1959) by Guy C. Wiggins. The references – influences for this composition are Tchaikovsky’s “Russian Dance – Trepak” from Nutcracker and John Williams “Holiday flight” from Home Alone (I believe that John Williams also used Tchaikovsky’s Trepak as reference!)
