PIANO SOLO

© Emanuele Coluccia 2006 / Distribuzione Workin' Label

Emanuele Coluccias piano solo cd is available in digital stores starting november 19th. The album consists of 10 tracks extracted from a session of impromptu composition in june 2006. The recording is a snapshot of a very particular moment of the authors relation with music. That moment has been a crossroad where at least three great issues of his inner world met: the many years of studies, with all the focus points that they created in his mind; his desire to break the boundaries of tradition, both personal and collective one, in order to find a less structured but much wider space to play in; finally, the eternal, indestructible feeling that after all, in spite of all, nothing would ever be enough, therefore the inevitable conclusion: if theres anything that will answer all the questions, it is to be found necessarily here and now.
