Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release is the debut album of composer and accordionist Sara Calvanelli performing with some of Italy’s top musicians. This is a project dedicated to dreams and maternity to discover this young and talented artist. Sara writes: “Onironautica is a term created by the German psychoanalyst Frederik van Eeden to describe the experience of the lucid dream. When we are dreaming we are often passive protagonists, viewers of ourselves, on the contrary in the lucid dream we turn into explorers, inventors, travelers. Most of the music of this album was written during my first pregnancy. At the end of the day I used to improvise, letting my thoughts flow freely, and with the passing of the weeks, I felt the desire to match the sound of the Read more accordion with that of the voice. The improvisations slowly became definite lines and over time I felt the need to involve other musicians, artists with different histories and languages, but all sharing a single, great trait: an archaic and magical conception of sound.” Read less
