Fabio Prota (solo piano)
This record stands for my attempt to blend my life experiences into music. The ingredients used to accomplish it have different origins, even distant in time, however most of what you’ll hear is the result of a fantastic opportunity I had in 2013 to come in contact with a group of psychiatric patients in one of Bari’s hospitals where, as a volunteer doctor and with the help of some students I held a music workshop. The moments lived with them made me think about the so called “madness”, an abused word around which people in my country still go on erecting walls just because they appear to offer the “bricklayer” on duty more certainties, careless of the fight men and women wage everyday to keep their sanity. I wish Mania Super Moenia could offer each listener some moments of absolute freedom from those barriers.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Giuseppe Bolognini on 20 and 21 May 2015 at Bobo Studios, Capurso (BA) – Italy
All the tracks are original compositions by Fabio Prota but for the last one (n. 7 by H.Arlen – E.Y. Harburg)
In loving memory of Davide Santorsola
