  • Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3 weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te regelen, maar het blijft lastig...

    ArtiestCarpani, Alex
    2e HANDSNee
    Omschrijving“Microcosm” is the new album by the Italian-French musician Alex Carpani, one of the most popular keyboardist, singer and composer on the national progressive rock scene. The record boasts the participation of numerous Italian and foreign special guests, starting with Jon Davison, current voice of YES and interpreter of "Kiss And Fly", the first track that anticipates the album. Joining Alex Carpani in this new recording project are also David Jackson (Van der Graaf Generator, Peter Gabriel), David Cross (King Crimson), Theo Travis (Soft Machine, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson), Bruno Farinelli (Elisa , Il Volo, Cesare Cremonini, Lucio Dalla), Andrea Torresani (Vasco Rossi, Franco Battiato, Tiziano Ferro), Emiliano Fantuzzi (Nek, Laura Pausini, Biagio Antonacci) and Davide Rinaldi (Dark Lunacy). A team of prestigious musicians for a full-bodied full length of 12 tracks with a refined compositional cut in which the influences of jazz- rock and symphonic rock converge, with refined arrangements and moments of great rhythmic intensity. Among the songs contained in "Microcosm" there is also a personal version of "Starless" by King Crimson, the video of which is already available on the artist`s YouTube channel. Man as a representation of the universe, or rather as a microcosm, constitutes the concept of this new album, where each track is a frame of real life that opens up unpredictable imaginative horizons. Like a visionary travel diary, "Microcosm" explores that fascinating middle ground that is existence, suspended between the world inside and the world outside, between sidereal light and darkness, between dream and reality. "On the CD booklet I wanted to bring a phrase by Don Carlo Gnocchi that perfectly summarizes what I describe in the album, his concept:" Every human being is an unmistakable and autonomous microcosm - says Alex Carpani - It`s just what I wanted to say; of the fact that we are small universes and that each of us spends his entire existence on a borderline, the one between his own universe (the microcosm) and all the rest that surrounds and dominates it (the macrocosm). In this interaction, on the edge of this dividing line, our life takes place and everything we perceive of ourselves, of others, of the rest of the world, of the cosmos, of God, of the past-present- future. However, I did not want to dwell only on the philosophical and theoretical aspect, which is why I told all this through 12 songs, 12 stories that could be flashes of real life, almost fragments of everyday life that contain within them fragments of eternity . In short, "Microcosm" is a kaleidoscope of life, a colorful and multifaceted representation of its unpredictable and inscrutable magic.
