Quando ho proposto l'idea di questo disco a Oscar del Barba e Stefano Bortolussi, sapevo di avere a che fare da un lato con un compositore di rara raffinatezza e creatività, e dall'altro con un poeta per il quale la musicalità del verso è un elemento imprescindibile. Sapevo, insomma, che in loro avrei avuto due compagni di avventure in perfetta sintonia con ciò che avevo in mente: qualcosa di nuovo e al tempo stesso un ritorno alle origini. Stefano e io abbiamo raccolto, oltre a tre suoi contributi originali in lingua inglese, i testi di alcuni tra i più bravi poeti e scrittori italiani di questi anni, per i quali ho voluto pormi come una sorta di musa ispiratrice, chiedendo loro di elaborare versi sui grandi temi dell'amore, del desiderio, della lontananza, del ricordo e partecipandovi a mia volta con intuizioni, varianti e suggerimenti.
Abbiamo modellato e levigato le parole a noi affidate, in cui ricorrono figure alle quali sono molto affezionata come l'acqua e il viaggio. Successivamente abbiamo affidato i testi alle sapienti mani di Oscar, che li ha messi in musica e orchestrati per quartettod'archi, cesellando le note sui versi con sapienza e profonda ispirazione.
Ma soprattutto io ho sperimentato, cantato e interpretato seguendo un’idea di canzone che si distaccasse e prendesse il volo dalle convenzioni; e Stefano e Oscar hanno ascoltato e suggerito a mente aperta. Il risultato, ne siamo convinti, è una volta tanto fedele all'intento di partenza: quello di riallacciare i rapporti tra canzone e poesia, oggi troppo spesso sacrificati sui falsi altari delle rime facili e dell'orecchiabilità.
Compagno di viaggi ideale il Quartetto Echos, un gruppo giovane, pieno di entusiasmo, talento e passione e curioso verso i progetti crossover.
Garanzia di sempre la grande maestria di Marco Lincetto dietro il banco regia e il suo prezioso apporto come produttore discografico.
Questa, dunque, è la nostra idea di canto libero. O forse sarebbe meglio dire "una delle nostre idee", poiché ho la sensazione che ne seguiranno molte altre.
When I proposed the idea for this album to Oscar del Barba and Stefano Bortolussi, I knew that I was dealing with a composer of rare refinement and creativity and with a poet in whose versesmusicality is an essential element. I knew, in short, that in them I would have two companions of adventures in perfect harmony with what I had in mind: something new and at the same time a return to the origins.
Stefano and I have collected, in addition to his three original contributions in English, the texts of some of the best Italian poets and writers of these years. I wanted to be a sort of inspiring muse for them, asking them to dedicate their verses to the great themes of love, desire, longing and memory, and contributing in turn with insights, variants and suggestions. We molded and polished the words entrusted to us, where certainimages that I am particularly fond of — such as the seas and our travels upon them — are deliberately recurrent. Then we entrusted the words in Oscar's masterful hands, and he set them to music and created the score for string quartet, chiseling his notes around the verses with great skill and inspiration.
But above all I experimented, sang and interpreted, following an idea of song that would break away and take flight from any convention; and Stefano and Oscar listened and made their suggestions with an open mind. The result, we are convinced, is for once faithful to our original intent: that of resuming the connections between song and poetry, now too often sacrificed on the false altars of easy rhymes and catchiness.
In this journey I found an ideal travel companion in the EchosQuartet a young group overflowing with enthusiasm, talent, passion and curiosity towards crossover projects.
All this, as always, has been ensured by the great mastery of Marco Lincetto behind the console and by his precious support as a record producer.
This, then, is our idea of canto libero. Or perhaps I should say "one of our ideas", since I have the feeling that many more will follow.

It’s always difficult to talk about something that involves you directly. Like, for example, of an album for which you take care of the artistic production. And an album, if you have decided to devote yourself to it, to offer it your time, your skills, your commitment, is like a son. Although you didn’t write it, or perform it, you end up being part of it. I have produced about twenty albums, I could’ve produce more, maybe, but I always chose to work with and for the quality. Presenting this album, this one, is even more difficult because we are talking about two sons, plus a few adopted ones. It’s not a secret, Jacopo, Sick 4 Milk’s leader, is my son. I have known some of his adventure pals since they had just started to wear long trousers, some since when I still had the slight hope of keeping some hair on my head. Have I artistically produced my son’s album? No, even though there wouldn’t be anything wrong with this: I produced Sick 4 Milk’s first album, a band of which I’ve been a fan since the first concerts at some roman pubs. I’m hypercritical with my sons, with the legitimated and the adopted. I have been so for all these years (not so many, but a lot compared to the age of the band’s members), until, as passionate and professional in the “music and similar” business, I understood that this talent, obvious since long time ago, penetrated deep down these guys’ souls, leading them to an artistic maturity that some groups more from my time than theirs, still haven’t reached. I didn’t decide to do an album: chatting one night with Marco Lincetto, I asked him to listen to a piece, the first one in unplugged version that was on youtube, just to have his opinion. Marco, after a few minutes wrote to me: Excellent, I want to do this album. I didn’t have to struggle or convince anybody and this was a great relief. And it gave me confort in my assumption of knowing music well and of recognising talents, in other words of knowing how to do my beautiful job. I obviously knew that the Velut Luna recording would have been of high quality, it was perfect indeed. Then come what may, these guys are talented, not only in music, and this being talented in many other things other than music, is in my opinion the reason why at their young age they already look like a mature and famous group. Because I never believed in talent without intelligence and knowledge or at least the desire to learn. And forgive me if I badly quoted Miles Davis. If I may say, I will end this short presentation with a genetic-affective-animistic note: The acoustic ovation that Jacopo plays is the one that belonged to his uncle Danilo who left it prematurely as an inheritance to his unworthy brother who passed it to his son (a very long loan) It is the number 1037, the first to arrive to Italy. And in the last 35 years it played very well its role treading the stage all over Italy and around the world without ever missing a beat.
