This album is a sort of "Musical Fairytale", a guided journey, a night flight on the wings of the fairy Alidoro, in search of a disappeared humanity and the Great Heart.
I started composing the music on March 21, 2020 and I finished the arrangements and mixing exactly one month later. This was my way of channeling and transforming the “lockdown” energies: trying to evoke the inspiration of Love of an Invisible Elsewhere that I have always perceived as present.
This "Fairytale in Music" leaves ample space to the listener's creative imagination. I suggest listen with headphones, lying down or in a meditative position, in the dark or in the dim light.
