Swedish producer ConnecteD has a truly unique sound, and it is on display front and centre as he makes his Altered Reality Records debut with a new two-track EP, The Epic of Gilgamesh. Taking inspiration and name from the ancient Mesopotamian poem, this EP is dripping in mystical atmosphere; with psychedelic rhythms and sonic textures creating an auditory journey across time and space
The Epic of Gilgamesh (/ˈɡɪlɡəmɛʃ/) is an epic poem from ancient Mesopotamia that is often regarded as the earliest surviving great work of literature. The literary history of Gilgamesh begins with five Sumerian poems about Bilgamesh (Sumerian for "Gilgamesh"), king of Uruk, dating from the Third Dynasty of Ur (c. 2100 BC). These independent stories were later used as source material for a combined epic in Akkadian.
The Mesopotamian epic of King Gilgamesh of Uruk-oldest epic poem of the world. She asks her father Anu to unleash the Bull of Heaven upon Gilgamesh's city, but Anu dismisses her. She then threatens to resurrect the dead, who will outnumber the living, devouring them. This gets Anu's attention, and he gives in. The Bull does to the city of Uruk what Godzilla does to Tokyo, and Gilgamesh and Enkidu rushes in like the heroes they are, slaying it with sheer force. Inanna cries out, and, in rage, Enkidu hurls a piece of the Bull at her. Whether it reaches her, we do not know. But this act of blind fury seals Enkidu's face.

But the Gilgamesh featured in The Epic of Gilgamesh is a bit more sensational: he is part man and part god; he opts out of being a goddess' boy-toy; he then goes to the ends of the earth and finds the secret of eternal life. In other words, the text you're reading is sort of the equivalent of a Hollywood blockbuster that claims to be "based on actual events"-something that wants to seem like the real deal when it really isn't. Since this is a matter of choice, no two translations of The Epic of Gilgamesh feature exactly the same text. Some translators use brackets or blanks to identify the gaps in the original text. Some use their imaginations (. making stuff up) to create a smooth, unbroken narrative.

The Epic of Gilgamesh is about the legendary Sumerian king and his adventures with his companion Enkidu. The story is retold in hunting chants, crazed lamentations, the snake's bite, a showdown with the Gods, and a conclusive Hymn to our frail lives. The photo was found at an abandoned house. Our blind life, a friend's death and ghost, lachrymose caterwauls, corporeal defeat, and the philosophical triumph
The ancient Sumerian poem The Epic of Gilgamesh is one of the oldest written stories in existence, translated with an introduction by Andrew George in Penguin Classics. Miraculously preserved on clay tablets dating back as much as four thousand years, the poem of Gilgamesh, king of Uruk, is the world's oldest epic, predating Homer by many centuries. The story tells of Gilgamesh's adventures with the wild man Enkidu, and of his arduous journey to the ends of the earth in quest of the Babylonian Noah and the secret of immortality.
