of Dreams" is a symbolic place, is outside and inside
us, is the deep essence of our anxiety and hope.
The desert is the original earth, the ancestral "humus"
from which the babelic stream of languages and cultures
grows enriched with human experience.
The mood of the songs is an original mix of ethnic influences
(Trilok Gurtu, Rabih Abou Khalil), rock
and progressive suggestions (Peter Gabriel, King
Crimson) with a distinct jazz contamination (Jan
Garbarek, Oregon, Weather Report).
The lyrics are projections of virtual and true realities,
between dream, vision and poetry. They are interpreted
by four different singers, each contributing to make "Cities
of Dreams" a journey through different lands
and emotional moods.
This new work increases the experimentation and the
fusion between different musical styles which are evident
when listening to the first CD of "Terre
Differenti". The arrangements use ancient
and ethnic instruments intermingled with electronic sounds.
Voices and melodies are treated beyond classical models
and produce ethereal, oniric feelings.
Why "Terre Differenti"? In Italian , the word
"terra" has several meanings. .
Terra is the soil and this means primitive, material
concepts. The usage of a different and new alchemical
Terra is the clay, and in arts we can use different
clays to produce sculpture and colors.
Terre Differenti also means unknown lands, suggestions
of concrete realities but also of inward regions.
Listening to "Cities of Dreams"
is like making a journey in different lands, between dream
and reality, through unexplored and profound dimensions
of the soul.
