Sono Pazzi Questi Romani – They’re crazy, these Romans
The guys from NED – Nostra Etichetta Discografica, went to the biggest piano shop in Rome (around 250 exhibited pianos), gathered together many musicians, set up some microphones and started playing. Loudly. I was there to witness many grand pianos producing an avalanche of sounds, waves of harmonics moving around that old basement that once was part of the Domus Aurea, the house of Emperor Nero himself.
The crazy visionary behind the mixing desk was Paolo Sinigaglia and the players were Luca Miti, Benedetto Fanna, Giovanni Guaccero, Marco Olivieri, Roberto Dogustan, Dario Nitti, Lorenzo Lustri, Kapitan Mikonos, Anna Guidi, Marco Ariano and, at the second round, myself.
I’m late publishing it. It all happened the 19th January 2015.
