TARABUK DIALOGUE BETWEEN ACCORDION AND DOUBLE BASS
Full digital recording studio, Casalecchio di Reno (BO) Italy, recorded on September 2005. Marco Lo Russo, accordion, Tiziano Zanotti, double bass. Darabukke ( or tarabuka) is a chalice-like clay drum which was originally used by the pre-islamic Egyptian populations during their rituals. It is during a celebration that stories are told from generation to generation, and traditions and rites are rediscovered; where the music is the real protagonist, narrating faraway tales. There is no category for this music; contemporary sound, alive today while reminding of more or less ancient times here and elsewhere. There are no categories for the instruments; polyphonic and monodic, melodic and percussive, playing solo or in duo, always mixing the listening levels. There is no category for what we are writing and listening. Roberto Di Cecco
New classic-minimal. Music composed by Roberto Jonata except track 13 "Kiss the rain" - Yiruma. Roberto Jonata piano. 24/96 Digital Recording mix and mastering at Magister Area Studios, Preganziol, Italy on January 19, 2012. Roberto Jonata returns with a new album, deeply inspired and self-composed to color the sounds of our existence. “I wanted to translate into music the need of hope which today, more than ever, we perceive. Each and every note reminds us that a world of endurance and belief embraces the sad stories we come across during our migration through life. A ready-to-react world, a world made of people and things, small stains of color printed on faded, black and white photograph.” Creativity and passion, poetry and tradition are the outstanding ingredients of this masterpiece. “Colors” contains pieces composed by the very same musician who draws on personalized “new classic” sonorities influenced by a minimalist romanticism which is his distinguishing mark.
“Infinity” is the title of the new cd by the pianist, Roberto Jonata. 12 new tracks for piano solo, born from an introspective journey of the artist, that dedicates the entire work to the universal concept and never-ending message of music. “I tell the story of a man that looks at the horizon and observes with his eyes closed, imagining the infinity over the thin line that separates the sky from the earth. Every thought that comes back, can be described by music, transforming itself in a undeletable track that links passed to present, and the present to the future. Music becomes a pure, infinite expression of a physical and metaphysical universe of reality, and expression of our dreams”. A series of compositions in neoclassic flavour, rich of emotive density that moves constantly on the border line between passion and romanticism. Piano sounds influenced and coloured by “minimal music” that give a personal and unique style to Roberto Jonata’s piano playing and music.

PARMA - Hidden and Imaginary Landscapes
"PARMA - Hidden and Imaginary Landscapes" parte dalla sorpresa suscitata dai panorami sonori riemersi a causa delle misure per il contrasto e il contenimento del virus Covid 19. All'improvviso abbiamo trovato ambienti sonori stravolti dalla mancanza di traffico umano. E' come se i luoghi fossero tornati a respirare, riappropriandosi dei loro rumori originari, della vita ad essi collegata, rimettendosi gli abiti comodi della loro storia. Un'occasione che non poteva essere persa: abbiamo subito cercato di catturare il respiro di posti frequentati, amati o significativi. Molti i tentativi e le elaborazioni, ma crediamo di avere trovato una sintesi, sia per mezzi utilizzati e sia per intenzione espressa. Abbiamo cercato di elaborare "qualcosa" che possa andare al di là del suono, incidendo la memoria, permettendone una proiezione che diventi connaturata agli stessi paesaggi, che non saranno mai più come prima. "PARMA - Hidden and Imaginary Landscapes" starts from the surprise aroused by the soundscapes re-emerged due to the measures to counter and contain the Covid 19 virus. Suddenly we found sonic environments disrupted by the lack of human traffic. It is as if the sites had returned to breathing, reappropriating their original noises, the life connected to them, putting back on the comfortable clothes of their history. This was an opportunity that could not be missed: we immediately tried to capture the breath of frequented, loved or significant places. There were many attempts and elaborations, but we believe we have found a synthesis, both for the means used and for the intention expressed. We have tried to elaborate "something" that can go beyond sound, engraving memory, allowing a projection that becomes connatural to the landscapes themselves, which will never be the same again.
