Χυμός Άγιος – may be translated either “Holy Juice” or “Holy Substance”, refering in the first interpretation to Orange Juice with LSD of Merry Pranksters, but more likely to the sacral beverage of Proto-Indo-Europeans (sanscr. सोम, avest. haoma, Proto-Indo-Iranian *sauma-). There is a theory, that the main component of this sacral drink was Ephedra and our predilection to ephedrine-liking substances at the moment of creation the “Χυμός Άγιος” caused the drunken, dionysiac and insane character of this music.
The second interpretation of title – “The Sacral Substance” – refer to the philosophocal context of Ancient Greeks (Plutarch and some others) and in this context is associated and connected etymologically to the word “chemistry”. In this sence our collaboration was the trial of inner-alchemical process and synthesis.
