Openland Radio full interview. I was asked to talk a little bit about my music. See the full interview!
Consider This is one of the oldest songs I composed and the only one that was not changed so much over the years. I remembered being obsessed with the music of the Red House Painters and wanted the lyrics to be as much confessional as I could. Song is actually aboung being in connection again with the world outside.
It Never Comes To An End is the second song played and filmed at Openland Radio sessions, a song about ever travelling wishful thinking.
Ciliegio is an instrumental song about the delicacy and the transience of cherry trees, my first childhood friends. Cherry trees (ciliegi in Italian) have always been part of my life and I am happy I grew up surrounded by very huge cherry trees planted almost 80 years ago by my grandfather. I spent my spring days with them, jumping, embracing, hurting them. They suddenly died, one by one, after some thunderstorms hitting the country few years ago. I like to think that they missed me and my sister playing with them, as we were growing old and almost forgetting about magic of spring.
Cherry trees are what I consider to be the start of the spring. I observe them since my childhood and I never get tired of them. Through this video I tried to tell their seasonal life, from flowers to fruits. I made it after shooting several moments between April and June.
