MARIO MARIANI - ELEMENTALEA PRESS AREA
We are pleased to announce you the release on the 1st of December 2012 of Elementalea, the new album by the eccentric Italian piano soloist and composer Mario Mariani produced by Ala Bianca/Zingaroton and inspired to the zero impact festival "Teatro Libero di Monte Nerone" (Free Theatre of Monte Nerone).
Recorded live over one day in the pinewood of Fosto on the borders between Marche and Umbria, Mario Mariani's "instant compositions" come to life against the backdrop of a "natural orchestra" emphasizing the sounds and expressions of the flora and fauna inhabiting the wood. This is almost music therapy with hypnotic effects, creating serenity and setting the environment for meditation.
From the cd inner notes:
In the summer of 2011 I embarked on a new experience. I built a small wooden house in a pine forest, on the border between Marche and Umbria and with the help of friends and supporters I founded the "Teatro Libero del Monte Nerone" (Free Theatre of Monte Nerone). Concerts, events and daily performances took place for over a month in this magical environment, before a captivated and participating audience. This successful event led to the creation of ELEMENTALEA, inspired by and dedicated to the "spiritual creatures of nature" which Paracelsus defined as "Elementals".
In the course of one day I tried to channel the constant flow found within each of us, into a "composition in real time", that is not controlled and not predetermined (hence the reference to Alea). That is the reason why I see this composition as being a "support for meditation" and I suggest it be listened to it in a secluded environment, in tranquillity and concentration, with the use of headphones or better still, outside in the open, re-creating and enriching once again the mystery of the never-ending symphony of nature in a process that is, for each of us, highly personal and unrepeatable.
Mario Mariani, March 2012
