Soundtrack For Movies In Your Head (distributed by SELF), released on May 26, 2014 in digital stores and on May 27 in physical format. This album contains 13 tracks, which sum up the best of the artist’s compositional skills. As the title says, it is a sort of “soundtrack” for the feelings, mental images, the movie that everyone has in their head or that may arise from the songs themselves. As well as impressionist paintings had as a title the subject of the painting, but was often vague and rarefied, connecting event to the musical impressionism of Debussy and Satie, in Soundtrack For Movies In Your Head the subject of the song is often expressed (The Girl And The Rye, Last Day Of November, Carol In The Rain), but the focus on it is left to the listener. After some experiences in writing for documentaries and theatrical performances, mainly music in the minimalist style à la Yann Tiersen, Michael Nyman or Ludovico Einaudi, in 2010 and 2011 the first songs that the album will be made from and that will be its signature style began to take shape: the piano as the source of the melodic or harmonic idea, a crescendo that carries acoustic and electric guitars, rhythm section and synthesizers, in a perfect cohesion of all these elements. It goes from the pop-rock of Coldplay‘s songs to the Baroque style of Arcade Fire or Muse, or even more abstract songs that are close to the ones by Mogwai, Sigur Ròs or Explosions In The Sky. Years studying classical music, composition and piano, are here condensed into songs that, disguised as simple and catchy melodies, sometimes they hide several key changes close together, orchestrated parts in counterpoint or accurate harmony vocals. This creates a sort of post-pop sounding very cinematic, with a repertoire that features many instrumental pieces and a minority of songs sung in English.
