How to fit a music studio AND an art studio in a car?


Dear followers, if you’re used to read our diary between the lines, we have given a couple of clues already about our next destination.

It’s official! [first breaking new will start here]

We are moving very soon to Northern Greece, next to Kavala. This is the amazing place we are moving to :

Aegean see, inspiring place, Athrion, Nea Peramos, Greece
Athrion, Nea Peramos, Greece

This is one of the view that will inspire our upcoming projects and sounds, and actually we already composed/discussed/wrote many things from that particular place (if you want to share the feeling with us, you can check here on Google maps). Expect loads of pictures from Greece in next months!

So, how do we fit an art studio + a music studio above the usual staff in a car? Well… we don’t really know yet!

How to fit an art studio and a music studio in a car?

Because yes, we are moving with our car, Kavala is only about 450 km from Istanbul.

But for sure, it will help if we can sell some extra albums before we leave, it would kind of help…

So, [2nd breaking new starts here] we’ll offer until next Monday (December the 2nd, 2013) a special & ridiculously cheap price for our album, shipping included: 10.00€ which is about 13.50$ – just a little click on the link bellow and you’ll land on our on-line shop…

Beltain Fire

Tonight and tomorrow, it’s Celtic festival Beltain (or Beltan, Beltane, “tan” in Breton meaning “Fire”), on the years wheel, it’s on the opposite of Samhain, and together they are the major celebrations where the borders between worlds are thinner, so thin that it gets easy to travel from one world to another.

It’s a great period to ask about your future too, and we’ll do some Tarot reading to know if we’ll manage to get some tour dates, some (nice) reviews or even some festivals appearances? 🙂

We’re taking advantage of all the strong energies surrounding these days to offer you a 50% discount on our digital album edition, valid for 50 hours only, meaning, running until may the 2nd, 2 pm (GMT+2)

How? One click on this link : and use code “beltain” to get your discount.

DIY Album

Why don’t you buy our nice-wonderful-beautiful album ?


We are musicians, artists, and as any artist, totally passionate about we are doing, and sometimes… well, we forget about reality, we forgot we were in 2013…


Astrakan project world music album on bandcamp


Long before we released our album last September, we had long talks before deciding to release it digitally or physically. Mainly for promotional reasons, including in short words “you don’t exist if you don’t have an album”, we went to the classical album. Then we did a lot of work on the cover, we also bought them all from the manufacturer, and still haven’t sold enough of pieces to get our return on investment. All that said, we somehow got very narrow-minded about the way we wanted people to access our music. We got so attached to our “album” that, kind of, we didn’t want people to get our music in any other way that on the physical CD… Sounds *silly* put that way… but it really was that way…

So, yes, we know, they are loads of very good reasons to get only digital music, including lack of space, environmental concerns, … So…
