Birthday is the levity and energy of a moment of celebration and partying. I imagined it as the first single of my album because it strongly contains all those aspects that -I think- characterize my music: the contamination between different and distant sound geographies, the rhythm as a primordial outlet, a use of violin which is not always properly academic and often comes from improvisation: indeed, the first idea of the piece came up at a real birthday party, while playing music with friends out of a country house. In this piece I feel a luminosity which doesn’t mean to be superficiality, but rather escapism. I would like people to get the same feeling; but the suggestion of a piece, especially instrumental, will always be subjective and this is the best thing of music. In the video of the song, directed by Daniele Quadrelli, this positive and luminous energy reaches everybody and becomes dance and joy of life.
