This record has been recorded in a few different rooms, spaces, at different times of the day and night, with different moods, and a different drink while working (but usually a good cup of tea or coffee).
Once undertaking that long and tiresome journey that is the making of an album, I noticed that there was no way back. I started studying sound as much as I could, work and re-work those arrangements (sometimes coming back to the stripped-down, acoustic versions to remind myself why I was working on these songs in the first place).
This album has taken more than a year to be composed, written and arranged and another year to be recorded, mixed and released. I wouldn’t wish I’d made things differently for the recordings, as it gave me the chance to meet great people, collaborate with great musicians and think music differently. I learnt so much from actually listening, being aware of details that weren’t there before and of all this mesmerizing tiny sonic universe hiding under the musical layers.
I hope that this album will be shared and listened to for what it is, for the completion of a dream, for the obsession of letting the emotions merge into notes.
