” Like many other people, I watch the news about the revolution that’s taking place in Northern Africa. Today the focus is on Egypt… Yesterday it was on Tunisia… What are we gonna see and hear tomorrow?
We People express our needs, our will:
we explore our identity. So do I.
We have numerous possibilities to do so: all modern techniques are available. Because we all have a message. We want to be seen, to be heard, showing our unicity to the World.
We People have a voice that should be heard.
This piece is the first one of all PianoTweets until now that’s manipulated rather obvious with electronics. Resulting in what could be mentioned a “soundscape”: a short story in audio experience.
” One of my dearest friends lately sent me a message, maybe the next day after I started this project PianoTweets, the 1st of January.
She wrote: “Wow!” A little while after that a second message arrived: “Way to Go!”.
At first I didn’t understand the meaning of that expression. I thought:
“Ow, help, that means there’s an awful lot to do,
I’m not gonna make it, it’s gonna be a heavy job…!”. Well, I must admit, in some way she was a little bit right.
There’s a lot to do 🙂
But that is NOT what she meant, it’s not what the expression means. She meant to say:
“Ok! There’s a great and beautiful way to go!
This is a huge chance!”.
And that’s what it is. Realizing this project isn’t an easy job,
but it’s the most free, joyful and satisfying thing I ever invented to do.
And I’m happy with the growing number of fans of this project:
they all listen and reflect and react and support. To you ALL I want to write this: @PianoTweets is WAY to GO!
Playing this piece (in E flat major, but the notes only touch that chord at the end…),
I felt this energy, this “push” to go on and on. The open chords combined in a fast sequence illustrate the rolling power that’s beyond…
I’ll tell you a part of my thoughts:
being thoughtful – “Pensieroso”…
The reason to name this track in Italian is simple.
I lived there for almost three years.
A moving and impressive time.
Probably, Italian is one the most beautiful languages in the world.
Italy is considered one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.
It’s a complicated country.
People aren’t simple over there.
They are beautiful, like all people.
They are difficult, too.
While composing this piece, my thoughts were in Italy.
And thoughts give appearance.
Sometimes I read about people’s dreams in my timeline.
As a human being,
dreaming is one of the most beautiful and intense actions of the brain.
It happens that I dream of orange bombs with long and misty tails,
falling from a clear and deep blue sky.
More than once my dream is the most wonderful thing I know:
my arms function like real wings!
I fly anywhere I want to fly to,
high above woods and fields, cities and houses and… it’s so easy!
And I’ve had my bad dreams too, dear listeners.
In real lifetime, when awake, I dream a lot too.
Light ones and heavy ones.
It’s all happening in my brains.
And it causes always deep feelings.
So, this weekend, it’s Dream Weekend.
Today you hear a bit of my dreams: part 1.
More parts to come….
