|LATO BLU|It is the brand new track of the Giardini di Pietra Project. It is a piece written after a journey in the mirror, seasoned with liquid atmospheres and with words that refer to “a flower that is no longer afraid of the night”.
The electronics used refer to the typical atmosphere of Blade Runner and the classic electronic music of the 90s.
In contrast to it we can hear Giulia Barba’s sax. They are the background to a text, that of a soul that opens up to the world.
Here’s what Petra Dotti thinks: “Lato Blu collects the impressions experienced during a dream journey. A synthesis of what I feel, a distillation of my artistic self. A pleasant hypnosis “
And Carmelo Giacchino: “Lato Blu is the set of complementary worlds. Immersing yourself in the elements, the etheric space materializes “
The song is available from the online stores from November 26, 2020.
The video will instead be published on December 3 of the same year, and will be visible at this link
From November 20 you will be able to see on our website, in absolute preview, the video with 4 extracts from this new work.
I Giardini di Pietra was born in a recording studio in Bologna after the meeting between Petra Dotti and Carmelo Giacchino in 2016.
“Project”, added later, indicates a real musical project. It is impossible to trace them to a single genus. Their acoustic eclecticism allows them to re-enter the melótronic, evocative, alchemical and electronic songwriting.
The project mainly revolves around the guitar and voice of Petra Dotti, the drums and cajòn of Mario Impara and the producer and sound engineer Carmelo Giacchino, who processes everything with skill and extreme precision.
However, the many musicians who have collaborated on the musical project several times deserve a mention. We remember the guitarist Irene Elena (who with the group released their latest live studio EP “Ora e Qui”), Andrea Lamacchia, Mirko Giocondo, Alessio Mereo (double bass and electric bass recordings) and Alessandra Krüsi (transverse flute).
