Released in 1984,"Sun Masks" was Lena Platonos' first record to feature her own words and vocals. All instruments were performed by Lena herself.. "Sun Masks" was inspired by Argentine writer, Julio Cortázar as well as the film "The Wall" by Pink Floyd. "I began to reverse my thought process, to let melodies fade out, to turn to minimalism, to experiment on my Yamaha C60 synthesizer and a variety of "boxes" which I used to change the sound of my voice as well as the sound of the synthesizer" says Lena. The album featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the legendary Roland TR 808 drum machine. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skilfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. Her lyrics deal with the futility of love, the gap of human relationships, consumerist alienation in the bourgeois lifestyle of the 1980s.
