TREE OF LIFE


Tree of Life contains, as well as the definitive Suite, all the pieces composed and selected for the “Tree of Life” night show at EXPO 2015.

In the idea and in the image of the Tree I feel something extremely ancient, ancestral, and at the same time extremely modern. A correspondence where the music connects with the symbol, leading back to the myth of Orpheus, who through the power of Sound enchanted dolphins and made trees dance.

ALPHABET


The Alphabet is a pure space; the source of all languages. The Alphabet is to language, what sound is to music or what emotion is to feelings. La-Si-Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol. In English notation A-B-C-D-E-F-G.

Sound, like the Alphabet, is beyond time, motionless, until the letters finally expand into space. They enter into language and time, allowing us to discover the world in which we find ourselves through forms.

LIVE FROM MILAN


“My mother often said one thing to me”, the artist tells the audience. “There are two moments in the day when everything stops, wind, trees, birds, nature. One is right before dawn and the other right after sunset. Moments suspended, in silence”.

It is moments like these that Cacciapaglia’s music takes us to, gracefully, but deeply. In the here-and-now of physical interaction between piano, orchestra and electronic rarefactions. Music conceived and performed thusly can never be reduced to a mere intellectual exercise. It contains a power that erupts and expands. The sound waves develop around he who makes such music and the ones who listen to it. This music does not avoid emotion, it seeks it and awakens it.

TEN DIRECTIONS


Ten directions in the Eastern cosmogony’s means “in all directions throughout space.” These directions are the eight of the compass: east, south-east, south, southwest, west, north-west, north, north-east, plus the Nadir – below – and Zenith – at the top. These “Ten directions” are often matched to past, present and future to describe the set of all places – Ten Directions – and times – Three Times.

At any time and in any place there existed and exists a sound that awakens and resonates at a specific emotional state. A call that is heard and accepted by those who have been looking for it for a long time and in all directions.

CANONE DEGLI SPAZI


Through sound, emotion seeks new dimensions, not an escape from reality but the image of a new reality.

Music that creates emotion is like a wind that purifies and clarifies all obstacles and divisions. Like a piercing arrow that alerts places inside us we do not normally go to, in our daily lives. It opens up unknown and obscure landscapes, like a ray of light that, filtering into a dark room, banishes darkness so that nothing no longer obstructs our vision.

”Canone degli Spazi” is a work about the sound that spreads in all directions, travelling through the dimensions of an endless space – through the outer world and the inner spaces – through the unconscious and feelings.

QUARTO TEMPO


For many years, whenever I play the piano and compose, before touching the keyboard and starting to play, I stay still. I begin from silence. I enter into a precise state that I recognize and from silence, sound appears. It is an essential and directed sound that surpasses obstacles and divisions. It is not a mental or intellectual process but rather it is music that flows from emotion through melody and harmony, primordial elements of the power of sound throughout time.

“Quarto Tempo” is the space beyond the confines of the three time periods: past, present and future where before, now and then, meet and cancel each other out. In this unfathomable space I find an attitude open to listening to the music and the feelings that spring from it. This desire to go beyond these limits is a constant that is central to my work.

INCONTRI CON L'ANIMA


Twelve tracks compose the CD “Incontri con l’anima”, published and distributed by Delta Dischi. The lyrics are drawn from the Qoelet, the Bible, the Veda and the Upanishad and are sung by Nurla Rial, Letizia Calandra Brumat and Dora Carofiglio.

With this record, Roberto Cacciapaglia, through contact with the millenary wisdom of the sacred, continues in the direction of an encounter with the profound, in an age that is in constant search of regaining meaning and centrality. “The new fascinating work of one of the leading figures of the most innovative music scene both in Italy and internationally. Acoustic, essential and direct music which touches our emotions through melody and harmony, primordial elements of the powers of sound throughout time. An essential work which creates an intense relationship between audience and performer, between inner and outer perception thus becoming a ritual union”. (Deltadischi.it).

TEMPUS FUGIT


“Tempus Fugit” unites very different elements: instrumental and acoustic music, vocals and electronic rhythms, Latin, the native language of our roots and English, language of international communication. It is a ritual, sacred music directed towards a profound contact between audience and performer, and between inner and outer perception.

“Tempus Fugit” searches for a contact beyond divisions, to express a spontaneous uncontaminated instant. The desire to stray is one of the central features of this work.

ARCANA


“Arcana” is part of a path, of a wish: to escape limitations in order to trace a music without borders, beyond divisions. Apparently opposite musical materials meet and build ties to create a lost arcane musical mosaic, where music, life, inwardness and the outside world, coincide and become the symbol and the essence of work itself. This age allows the embrace of various musical experiences and thereby allows oneself be touched by all influences without discrimination.

TRA CIELO E TERRA


The words of a song must have the fragility and transparency of the shell of a cicada so that their delicate plot does not obstruct the prodigy of the sound, opening the way for the mysterious voice that goes beyond verbal signs and brings to man the gift to reach the truth of being. In Roberto Cacciapaglia’s lyrics there are wind and flags, clouds and nightfall, children intent on the mysterious song of the unknown, and there are eyes that reflect infinity: there is a world that asks to love and be loved, and there is a sky where one can fly. To see above high deserts, seas, cities and streets, the gaze of men and their passions!

ANGELUS ROCK


“Angelus Rock” is a musical theatre project and a tribute to ten “angels of rock”, personalities who have left their mark: Elvis Presley, Brian Jones (Rolling Stones), Jim Morrison (Doors), John Lennon, Bob Marley, Sid Vicious (Sex Pistols), Bob Hite (Canned Heat), Jimmy Hendrix, Nico (Velvet Underground), Janis Joplin. It is a journey through memory, across an age of rebellious souls, heroes who were symbols of a generation tied to one another by their passion for music.

“Angelus Rock” is a path, a pilgrimage across an age of rebellious souls, heroes who were symbols of a generation that wanted to go beyond its own limits through transgression and excess. It is a progressive comeback in memory to these passed away protagonists, to those angels of rock who touched, guided and influenced an entire generation.

GENERAZIONE DEL CIELO


“Generazioni del Cielo” is a contemporary musical work in the form of an oratorio; it stems from an evolution of the musical language gained through a multitude of experiences, ranging from classical composition to the production of wide listening music. The subject originates from the desire to tell an unusual story – a story without actual events but with truly felt emotions – drawing from contemporary literature and inspired by sacred texts.

In staging, the classically designed music is projected into a technological and multimedia environment, where ancient and modern can converse, interacting and debating.

THE ANN STEEL ALBUM


In my music there is nothing to understand. It is so superficial that I can’t find anything to say. My music is naive, there is nothing behind it and it is for this reason that I like it. One can listen to it while sipping tea, watching television, or speaking with a friend or in a moment when one has nothing to do or is bored, it can be listened to carefully and millions of little changes can be discovered. It is certainly not the ideal music, it is just one kind of music.

The computer was indispensable, it is a marvelously poetic instrument that evokes the beauty of the new technological environment and gives everything a great artificial taste of great modernity. This music can be used in many ways and listened to by different people, which makes me happy because I like it to be accessible to everyone. I wish it was even simpler, in fact one day I would like to find out that it is so much light as to fly away like a balloon.

SEI NOTE IN LOGICA


Tells about the adventures of six notes, four flat, A, B, D and E plus F and G that repeat and combine themselves in all of their possibilities. It is like a microscopic and slow motion vision. It exasperates the analysis of details and turns the mechanisms with which music winds itself and changes inside out. It is therefore possible to be aware of even one single note and live it to its upmost.

SONANZE


The need to write on the cover of this album does not mean a need to “explain it”, also because it would be both a utopian and senseless task, but rather to help individuate its difficult collocation and clarify its origin and aspirations. The first concrete contact, I believe, is in the title, “Sonanze”, indicative, in my opinion, of a work that finds itself at the crossroads of two musical structures: one (ASSONANCE, harmony, tonality) usually dictated by sensibility; the other (DISSONANCE, atonality, destructive force of the traditional classical structures), very useful “in its time”. I say in its time because I think that so-called “modern” music has undergone an aging process and Sonances of nonsense and that now that it has become “traditional”, it challenges the too great atonality, the too many aesthetic and discriminatory problems for a subject that should be liberally taken and manipulated to maximize the intensity of the creative process. Beyond technicality, the only real obstacle to the relationship is between listener and author.
