.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.



Singer for Greek progressive rock band Aphrodite's Child, who then went on to do some really weird solo shit. Really unique voice, he can sound very light and feminine, or very dark and husky. Check out "I Want To Live" by Aphrodite's Child for a good performance by him.

Appreciate the notes. Yeah, he has a really interesting voice.

Is that a quick F5 followed by a blue A5? Also, 3:15, is that a sung C6?

The first one sounds totally black.... The C6 is difficult to say...but Red is the best option plainly..
If you want Low notes...his album " Demis" ( 2009) has a few i think...but I will check it.

In the background here, there's a short scream. Is it a Bb5?

What note does he hit here on "MY FRIEND the wind"? Sounds second octave at first, but on a second listen, it sounds like it might just be darkened.

Sounds like a slightly growly D3 to me.
