Enter the scene, of the piano being played by the poet of sound, in a rustic house, with wooden floors and a fireplace to warm up on cold days, surrounded by a beautiful garden, in an interior city, with stone streets and magic in the air , then you will be ready to appreciate all the secrets that this album will reveal.
One October Day
A gentle melody comes to life in our senses, making us imagine a story that takes place in a room where the only source of light is the window, of a small wooden doll, waking up in a corner, awakened by the magical whisper of piano notes , as happy as the rays of the sun outside, in the flower garden with butterflies and birds flying.
Also featuring ambient sounds that complement the imagination, and we see ourselves accompanying the hesitant movements of the little doll, in that gigantic world to be explored, and his subtle questioning of the reason for this sound, being the beats of his heart.
In the Cross of Your Arms
They are heavier tones, which introduce us to this song, which paints us a semi-colored sketch of what appears to be a girl with long hair, running across the blank pages under the corner table, as if she was in a great hurry.
The pages fly to the ground, as she advances in the sound contrasts, making us feel the same emotions, understanding her urgency, even not seeing, or knowing her destiny, or if she will continue to run when the vitality of the music ceases.
The Water and The Blood
Leaving the mood lighter, these notes are endowed with joy and the fresh breeze in spring, where we are willing to have a picnic in a natural place, where there are no worries, just a perfect day to enjoy.
With these notes sounding in the background, along with the magical and ancestral nature lulling us with its surreal essences wind.
The Entwined Bodies
The majestic instrument plays at showing itself off, oscillating tones of comfort and energy, whether on stormy days or after the child's knee, she struggles in one of her childhood arts, where the only consolation is in her mother's lap, and in the sweet voice, which accompanies the sound of the keys and distracts the small and fragile heart from sadness, so that in the end, everything restarts, like the clever notes, showing us that it's over and we can play again, that this affection will always be there.
May Wear My Silence
Long-lasting warmth in an empty house, which, after much liveliness, managed to silence itself, on satin white pillows and a nice and fluffy dreamy duvet.
No turmoil, just calm, which covers us with peace, and in the laziness of dawn on a day off, where you can sleep a little longer, without problems or confusion.
We will enthusiastically embrace the silence of the day, to fill ourselves with the necessary rest of body and soul, in renewing synchronism.
In Decadence and Disarray
Constant and symmetrical, the steps echo in the wood, the drag of the slipper and a confused mind, injecting mute screams in the lack of perspective, lost or abandoned by any corner, turning the beautiful day into the house of dreams, without colors, desires or flavors , just the slow walk of existence, with a few memories to sometimes come to torment and fatigue, but overall, just being there, like a piece of furniture no longer used, that someone has forgotten in some corner.
The scales echo beyond the mirror, entering its grooves and exiting to dance on the other side, like dancers in a musical concert, to which perfection merges steps and melody, enchanting everyone, who is willing to appreciate and feel all the majesty of life. Transcribed into scores, and scattered by the instrument of destiny, to captivate dreamy hearts.
And in the glorious moment, we will be willing captives, never willing to run away from the mysteries and surprises that await.
In the end, we will be free, in spirit and conscience, we will be able to see much further than before, and we will find the same peace conveyed by this play of composition, which teaches the strength of sweetness and vigor, and that both can come together in an arrangement to make life sprout and transport it to the heavens.
So let the piano teach us the way through the clouds, and in its kindness we may dwell.
Everything comes to life in a house where the power of music reigns, and the album In Decadence and Disarray is the best and most fascinating example of this truth.
