02 Oct Desert Dance, the third excerpt from Awakening
This is the third excerpt from Awakening, the debut album released by Warner Music Italia.
The passage wants to suggest a projection towards a primitive, tribal dimension; a dimension in which reason and measure prevail in irrationality and instinct, almost animalistic, physical, sometimes sexual. This wild instinct is ignited and stimulated by a marked rhythmic and harmonic obsession that, just like in a tribal rite, leads a mystical, ecstatic evasion. It can be said that Desert Dance is my attempt to interpret freedom and the concept of Dionysian.
The videoclip, directed by Daniele Quadrelli, reproduces this ritual dimension that is marked by music in an almost orgiastic flow between violin, cellos, strings and percussion; here is the element of fire to symbolize instinct, primordial energy.
