MirazhIt is being rolled out for editions Digression Music of Bari, “Mirazh”, the new album by Giovanna Carone and Mirko Signorile. It is a work of extraordinary beauty, built on the idea of the journey and, above all, of a series of images that evokes this: by the movement, the imagination, the story, to return to the reflection and the transfiguration of the musical experience imagined. The two authors have woven a coherent and balanced story, through their only two “voices”: the piano and singing. The result is very pleasing, especially because the tracks that follow each other develop the theme of departure – which itself is vast, complex, deep, dangerous – calling into question important works. These include “Invisible Cities” by Italo Calvino and “The book of travel” of Benjamin of Tudela (written around the year Thousand). And also because, by reducing to only two instruments, the musical texture itself as essential, without redundancies, clear and consistent with the idea of a direct and effective narrative. These components emerge in all the songs, which are all sharing the tension linked to the discovery, imagination, the unknown. And refer to a set of musical influences that are dear to the authors and have characterized their previous productions and their formations: from early music to contemporary, from improvisation in jazz to Yiddish music. So just scrolling the ladder comes on curiosity, because the titles chosen for the songs drag us into a space more rarefied, mysterious but curious, unusual, full of exoticism not granted: “Aponim Fedora”, “Chasing Zobeidè”, “Eufemia Bazar”,”Shmaragden”,”Oltre”.
