Welcome to the music project EUMETRIS.
EUMETRIS is a musical cooperation between
the musicians, songwriters and performers Hans
Lamboo en Bart
van Schoonhoven. To
both of us it is the fulfilling of a long-cherished wish: the writing,
recording and releasing of an album with popmusic. This album is entitled 412nd (for
one second) and was released in December 2005; it contains completely
new and original songs, performed in a way we like best. We hope our
music meets the taste of many others.
This site provides you with some answers
and sneak previews of our music. And if you like what we're doing: you
can order the album!
about a name or title for our project, Bart suggested 412nd (for one
second) a small capture from the lyrics
of Hourglass, a song he wrote about relativity of our lifes related
to the existance of the world and the universe. But we thought it too
abstract as a group-name.
When Bart was reading the book Imprimatur,
he was intrigued by the myth about EUMETRIS,
the stone that turns dreams into prophecies, if it lies underneath
your head while dreaming. We both liked the mystic idea and concept,
so EUMETRIS it was.
The album initially was named Hourglass.
And then there was that strange week, in which two things occured.
Hans went for a short holiday to the Greek island of Samos and Bart
couldn't let go that particulair name 412nd and decided to register
After his holiday Hans told Bart about this dream he had on Samos.
At the very same moment that Bart was thinking
very hard about whether he would register 412nd, Hans had a
dream about the album and it was called 412nd. That
was too much of a coincidence so 412nd it was.
