Daniele Liverani – “Eleven Mysteries”
Released Jul. 20th, 2012
Description: While “Eleven Mysteries” is basically a guitar oriented album, the overall vibe of all the songs is definitely more like a “Conceptual instrumental album” where guitar has the role of a “virtual singer”. Musically there’s some intense shred, but also some very melodic moments, and the musicianship and arrangements of the talented line up involved helped to create a wide variety of atmospheres and different musical moments; due to the skills and different influences of the various musicians.
However, this not only an album for guitar lovers, but for anyone that appreciates musical composition on a more general level with lots to discover in and each and every track along with a first class production. On the diverse nature of material Daniele says, “I think there’s a very cinematic feel in the packaging of these 11 songs. The listening experience is really very close to a visual experience due to lots of ambient sounds, processed samples and speeches’ included in songs key spots. Also after many years I got back to guitar in a serious way, and practised a lot, experimented on sounds etc like I probably never did before, and I think this can be heard in the production of the album, I dedicated a lot of time to this aspect”.
Whilst the guitar work is undoubtedly the lead instrument, there is also an excellent backing from three new musicians that Liverani has discovered in the last few years and welcomes drummer Paco Barilla’, bassist Tony Dickinson and keyboardist Marco Zago to the scene. On his new musical partners Liverani proudly states: “These 3 gifted musicians I discovered have given a fresh feel to this album and I’m very happy about the result”.
Involvement: Bass Performance on entire album.
