release DATE

July 22th 2022

Genre

Modern classical electronics

How To Fall Down Below The Surface is the new album by composer and performer Marcello Liverani. It is a deeply introspective and intense and, at times, painful album: Each of the 12 pieces represents a step in a meditation process in which the composer lays bare through a catharsis that leads to the liberation of the self (the "falling down below the surface"). Each piece is meditation, prayer and total surrender to existential pain at the same time. This surrender is distilled into peace and serenity. An “Idee fixe” of the composer who seeks in music a means of existential self-healing and a way to share the deepest inner experiences with the audience. The serenity and peace that transpire from the use of electronics and the piano are the fruit of this profound surrender. The work will be released digitally on July 22nd under the exclusive of Believe Digital and on CD and Vinyl with the label BlueSpiral Records.

PRIVATE LINK LISTEN PREVIEW

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

1. CHASING THE SKY

It is a very delicate track that mixes an ambient texture with the use of a minimal piano. An impalpable opening piece that leads us into the "lightest" mood where we begin to lose our existential weight and deprives us of all everyday superstructures. Electronics describes ethereal and impalpable landscapes where sound leads us to look at the sky as a mirror of our soul.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

4. THE GREATEST VOID

The Greatest Void is perhaps the heart of the whole album. The construction of the piece is divided into two parts: a preparation and a more intimate one. In the first part, the void is created through an ambient texture and, when we are ready to receive it, the piano arrives: simple, minimal, touching and, in some way, unsettling. It is a piece that talks about pain and how, when we are able to accept it, this too can turn into pure beauty.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

7. another fragment of stilness

With this track a new phase opens. This second part starts with an apparent immobility made up of small waves of sound. The piece embodies an ambient soul agitated by a dark ambient mood. Here you can perceive a calm breathing after the more agitated "Where I come to an end". Compared to the other pieces, voices become more experimental and electronic: these are in fact stretched or pulverized to create rhythmic and contrapuntal intertwining over which the narration of the piano and synths spreads.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

10. immensity

Here the piano returns accompanied by discreet electronics that underline, together with the voices, a sweet melody. One single theme declined several times in different ways to create a very delicate and almost imperceptible crescendo.

2. DEEPER

This piece takes us on a cinematic journey through a continuous crescendo that leads to an orchestral and epic section. As the title itself suggests, it is going deep through the music to delve into our emotions. The atmosphere is that of Nordic music where, however, replacing the traditional orchestral instruments, the composer uses electronic sounds and instruments such as the voice which, integrated with the electronics, takes on an orchestral flavor.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

5. A FRAGMENT OF STILLNESS

Second piece for piano solo of the album. Here time becomes more rarefied and silences and pauses create the form through the timbre of the instrument. It is a track for which you need to take your time and let yourself go and it’s played in balance between this suspension and a simple and easily recognizable melody.

8. 2 or 3 things

This is the third solo piano piece on the album. A simple and deeply emotional piece that represents an opening after the dark colors of the previous piece

.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

11. A waltz?

ast piece for piano solo of the album. The title already provides indications on the spirit that led to this composition which is freely linked to the form of the waltz. From the point of view of the concept of the album we are faced with a naive surrender, in front of the existential wound.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

3. A GLIMPSE

It is the first solo piano piece in the production. Like the other piano solo pieces within the record it represents a moment of stasis. A narrative suspension and at the same time the summa of the meditative path. A transition between "kronos" and "kairos" that returns cyclically in the album. The piece has a very delicate writing but still with well-defined melodic and harmonic movements.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

6. Where I come to an end

It closes the first part of the album. The title refers to the end of the Self as ego. Also in this case, as in Deeper, it’s a long crescendo form with a development, however, that leads to a very different solution from the other tracks. In particular, the arrangement of the final part, winks at post rock and progressive 70s with the use of synth in a sort of improvisation.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

9. hapatek

Cross-genre track in which modern classical elements and rock suggestions intertwine. The piece was composed following cinematic suggestions. We imagine a long flight over a boundless landscape and a sense of spiritual and physical liberation.

image-from-rawpixel-id-3109716-original

9. let there be more light

The album closes with a luminous, almost transfiguring, piece. The brightness is described through the use of "light in sound" with the plucked piano strings or electronic treatments of the piano sounds themselves.

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

- 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.
