About Pytheas ...

The Pytheas Center for Contemporary Music, a Maine based nonprofit organization,
is a wide ranging web nexus for contemporary concert music.
Our mission is to promote contemporary composers
and their music through information, understanding and performances.


The center gets its name from Pytheas (c. 380 – c. 310 BCE), a Greek explorer, geographer and merchant. He made a voyage of exploration to northwestern Europe around 325 BC,
traveling around a considerable part of Great Britain, circumnavigating it between 330 and 320 BC.
Pytheas is the first person on record to describe the beauties of
the Midnight Sun, the aurora borealis and Polar ice,
and the first to mention the name Britannia and the Germanic tribes.
