The text

The main theme of these texts is the journey. If some of these trips may initially seem like real tourist itineraries, the viewer ends up each time getting involved in a complex, sometimes disturbing journey.
In reality it takes its cue from travel experiences to tell an exploration of mental places. Here then appear not only geographical spaces, travels and portraits of artists, but also private confessions and quarrels, diseases and epiphanies, as so many guiding lines.

The music

In creating the music, Luigi Ceccarelli worked particularly on the integration of text and music, using the voice as a musical element without compromising the intelligibility of the text.
The elaboration of timbre and rhythm create an additional emotional dimension along the thread of the story.
The musical elements used range from sounds of instruments belonging to different musical genres to natural sounds, to metropolitan sounds.
