The 2nd track, Part 2 (Dawn), from my forthcoming concept-album Nychthemeron is now available for prelisten on SoundCloud. This track reflects the dawn of a new day when first light sets upon earth in a 24-hour cycle.
nychthemeron (nik-THEM-er-on) noun
A full period of a day and night: 24 hours.
[From Greek, a combination of nykt- (night) and hemera (day).]
Ever wondered why day and night were divided into 12 hours? The number 12 is not as random as it sounds. There are 12 moons in a year. The number 12 is easy to divide into halves, thirds, and quarters. Also, some cultures counted in base 12: three joints on each finger (thumb as the counter).
