I live in an old house by the river close to a waterfall. When it rains the fields are flooding and the water touches the houses. At night when I sleep I have my windows open and outside I can hear the music of water, with and without dynamics, powerful and almost silent. track 10: "La civetta balla/ the owl dances" One night an owl was standing in the middle of the road and I had to stop the car. The owl performed a short magical dance and disappeared. Since that night I think a lot about the owl ... many things have changed in my life. track 3 and 4: "Buona mattina/ good morning" "Good morning world, it is time to wake up. I'm already awake .... but I like staying in bed a little longer to remember my dreams. Every morning, nature performes. It is always a beautiful morning sunrise. Good morning heavenly dawn. I love watching you. track 7 and 8: "Petite fille - vox" (little girl) In her own sweet way she is a little girl, a woman of the world and a source of strength and energy. It's about the incredible beauty of a person. I love you. track 5 and 6: "La civetta" I know you as a bird of the night and you know many things. You probably can predict life ... " track 16: "Free for 1 hand" I want to run my hand along the poetry of your landscape discover with my eyes shut tight its cliffs in the blood of your lips the poem inside you rocks dances sings follows your lead your every breath your every move your sleepless nights cling to me in tatters and I hunger for your fire in the ashes of your silence. ( Michél A. Thérien from his book: Poems - The wilderness within Poèmes - Corps sauvage) track 11,12,14 and 15: "Sketches 1 to 4" You let yourself go sometimes. Just starting without a specific plan and idea. Anything goes in the labyrinth of improvisation. Then suddenly you reach a platform of clarity. Do not stay there too long as you have to get back to that thoughtless beginning. track 13: "Un attimo/ one moment" A tiny moment of noise, sadness, confusion, silence, happiness, awareness ... and thanks. " track 17: Il Treno (the train). The sound of a train
