DER WANDERER

Author

Marcello Liverani

Genre

Modern classical / ambient electronics

Release date

November 26th

Digital distribution

Believe Digital

“Der Wanderer” is a 5-track EP to be released on November 26, 2021 under exclusive of “Believe Digital”.
After the reflections of the album "Shapes" which led from the abstraction of forms to discovery of an enchanted world, another scenario opens up here. A scenario of passage in Liverani's artistic activity already suggested by the title of the work. Der Wanderer is a famous lied by Franz Schubert which condenses in his lyrics the restlessness and, at the same time, the ideal of the romantic traveler.

“I come from the mountains;

the valley steams, the ocean roars.

I wander, silent and joyless,

and my sighs for ever ask: Where?

Here the sun seems so cold,

the blossom faded, life old,

and men’s words mere hollow noise;

I am a stranger everywhere.

Where are you, my beloved land?

Sought, dreamt of, yet never known!

The land so green with hope,

the land where my roses bloom,

Where my friends walk,

where my dead ones rise again,

the land that speaks my tongue,

O land, where are you?

I wander, silent and joyless,

and my sighs for ever ask: Where?

In a ghostly whisper the answer comes:

‘There, where you are not, is happiness!’”

Especially the verse "I am a stranger everywhere" represents the deepest meaning of this work between moments of profound melancholy and tracks where electronics are in search of a primal purity. Furthermore, in this work, the author explores a more narrative mix between his taste for ambient electronics and the classical influences due to his training. The 5 tracks are as the plot of a film in which the traveler returns home in the first scene and remembers his tormented journey in the following scenes.

Tracks

DER WANDERER ARTWORK
image-from-rawpixel-id-2043516-original

Daydream Landscape

The journey proceeds with a return to a more classical atmosphere. An ensemble, strings and piano, which is transfigured here as in a dream. The strings bring long breaths into a deeply meditative piece.

image-from-rawpixel-id-2043516-original

Berceuse

Berceuse means Lullaby in French. Berceuse is also the name of a musical form for solo piano. These two elements provide the ideal curtain opening of the work with a minimal and calm melody immersed in the timbre of a felt piano that welcomes timbral and intonation "blurs" which represent the return to a domestic and comfortable environment, ancient and Imperfect.

image-from-rawpixel-id-2043516-original

North Pole

A piece that, unique in the EP, welcomes the use of beats and a more composite architecture.The North Pole is a metaphor of the farthest point that can be reached on a journey. And it is in fact ideally here that the journey arrives: In the crystallization of the cold sounds of electronics and beats.

image-from-rawpixel-id-2043516-original

The Whale Chant

Here begins the parable of the journey which is, above all, an inner discovery. An icy yet tender majesty is suggested by simple harmonies, electronic poetry, sometimes descriptive, and minimal instrumental elements. The metaphor of the whale as grandeur of the self and ocean as an ideal and distant place.

image-from-rawpixel-id-2043516-original

Lamento
(Monteverdi in Mind)

The EP closes with a piece that shows, since the title, the close relationship with classical music. Claudio Monteverdi's vocal compositions are here an inspiration to integrate a certain use of the voice in an electronic elaboration where the melodies are once again suggested and not immediately revealed. The piece represents a dark and restless closing as in the text of Schubert's lied.

PRESS REVIEWS

Il cagliaritano Marcello Liverani ha una formazione classica, in composizione, coro e direzione d’orchestra, e si vede; il suo ‘Shapes Vol. 1’ è un lavoro di elettronica raffinata in cui batterie pulsanti, gocce ed echi di note si uniscono a lunghi pad eterei, arrangiamenti orchestrali e pianoforte, che è un po’ lo strumento principe delle 5 tracce

- Rockit

- Steve Shepard Music Reviews

Spesso ci troviamo a parlare di musica come quell’arte che suscita e/o fa esaltare le sensazioni e i vissuti umani: qui, ad essere esaltato, sono gli stati di quiete, in cui si entra in connessione col tutto, in particolare con l’essenza del mondo circostante.

- Primo ascolto

La creazione di questi nuovi paesaggi sonori cinematici viene arricchita da una grande prova di sensibilità e un’attitudine elettronica, che fanno di Shapes vol.2 un lavoro sublime, morbido e dalla grande forza descrittiva.

- Radioaktiv

La semplicità a regnare come indiscussa sovrana, intrigante e cingente dentro una particolare spirale fatta di sapori intensi e martellanti.

- CornerMusicZine

Un sound potente, voluminoso e ricco di spunti interessanti che vanno ad evidenziare la vena compositiva dell’artista che unita alla tecnica generano un album dal notevole impatto sonoro.

- Underground Music

Un ascolto intenso dove il musicista con M maiuscola, riesce a riprodurre sonorità originali ricche di energia e adrenalina allo stato puro con un tocco personale e particolare che rende l’insieme estremamente gradevole.

- MusicInABox

In questo percorso di circa quaranta minuti, l’ascoltatore si cala in un viaggio fluido e intenso fatto di suoni aggressivi che lasciano spazio ad un sound più morbido, tutto ben amalgamato e con una cura nei dettagli che fanno di questo Ep un progetto originale.

- Soundwaveszine

Liverani con questa seconda parte di “Shapes”, ha saputo di nuovo affascinare e sognare ad occhi aperti, il delicato e sapiente mix di Modern classical e ambient elettronico, riconferma la sua travolgente genialità e la sua innata creatività compositiva.

- The Musicway Magazine

Un disco dove ogni singolo dettaglio elèva alla massima potenza ogni singola traccia, lasciando da parte ogni dubbio sulla vena artistica .
Un album che suona caldo, corposo e accattivante che fa bella mostra di sé in ogni sua nota, non importa da quale strumento arrivi. Uno stile semplice, senza artefatti, quasi imbarazzante per la semplicità con cui si manifesta.

- Sounds good webzine

Italian composer and performer Marcello Liverani says his new EP has a second inspiration, besides the Zen philosophy that so often informs his gently beautiful work.

- The Moderns

La sua musica è un mix di suoni classici ed elettronici che vanno a tessere trame suggestive e fortemente emozionali

- Radioaktiv

Grazie al prezioso e raffinato “Shapes vol.1” Liverani ha condiviso e diffuso con noi tutte le forme, le gioie e le espressioni emotive generate dalla vita: amore, sensibilità, empatia. Lode meritata per Liverani!

- The Musicway Magazine

In a world that has been (for some of us) chaotically boring or, at best, artificially restful, this type of music is exquisite.

- Ear to the ground

Un artista che sicuramente farà la gioia degli ascoltatori di Philip Glass, Nils Frahm e Olafur Arnalds.

- Radioaktiv

It’s a beautifully composed track that creates just enough tension to keep the listener 

- Tome to the Weather Machine

un breve EP che propone di investigare il senso di “forma” proprio a partire da una visione sonora dai caratteri fluidi, imprevedibili, liberi, fuoriuscenti dai tradizionali limiti musicali

- Primo Ascolto

Un artista che sicuramente farà la gioia degli ascoltatori di Philip Glass, Nils Frahm e Olafur Arnalds.

- Radioaktiv

 Marcello Liverani‘s lo-fi piano EP Shapes is set for release on January 29, preceded by “Tangles” ~ a quiet, contemplative piece that bodes well for the set.

- A Closer Listen

“Opening Inner B” allows Marcello Liverani to explore not only the musical landscape opened up but the emotional landscape unfolding between sparse piano notes, aching reverb and strings set to detune heaven. It’s a beautiful and thoughtful piece.
