Muse key visual MUSE is a cosmic meditative composition by Vassiliki Papaioannou inspired by and dedicated to the Nine Muses of Mythology.


The daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (Remembrance) gave us humans the gift of inspiration and art. Art connects the Human with the Divine. This is the source of inspiration for this composition, which intends to explore the essence between Woman and Goddess, between the Physical and the Ethereal.


MUSE was presented in the UK as the Main Presentation Project for the first degree (BA Hons New Music & Media) that I completed at UCLan and it got an 88% Distinction (70% considered the highest score one can be awarded), as an innovative composition, also leading to a scholarship for my MA By Research in Musical Composition.
