Nature

NATURE is a repertoire for solo cello and electronics that arises from a sonic exploration of the natural element. The pieces use music to describe the singing of birds or the high-altitude atmospheres of the Himalayas. To enrich this project there is the use of the hay cello, made with grass stems selected and woven by the artist Julia interno.

Qubit

Qubit

The title QUBIT refers to Physics and technologies that also extend their influence to artistic expressions and, in particular, to musical language.This work could be considered a synthesis of multiple languages. The album takes advantage of recent technological technologies in its creation, such as, for example, the loop station.

"The QUBIT songs, with classical references combined with the courage to experiment, are the right transposition of scientific discoveries."

CELLINA SONG
You can describe a place or a landscape in many different ways: by looking at it from the distance or walking it with your feet, by listening to its sounds, noises, whispers, echos, resonances and silences. That's the case of the Cellina - the singing of its water was put into poetry by Federico Tavan, in the original dialect of Andreis: "E soi un flum / che zint a / murî / in tal mâr / al mozena / sgrifa / carecja / claps / cencja pensâie sora / un parcêe /  s’a val la pena / s’al riva ad ora / sa se ferma prima // I am a river/ that goes to / die / into the sea/ grinding / caressing / stones / without thinking/ why / if it is worthy / if I will be on time / if I will ever stop". Riccardo Pes absorbed Cellina's waters and put them into music: "Stop..., listen. And listen to yourself..." seems he is saying with his music. It is worth to do it. You will feel happier and truer. Prof. Aldo Colonello

Listening to Riccardo's music you can immediately tell that it carefully avoided to be merely descriptive which is typical in this kind of situations. His musical language, infact, has a perfect balance: from one side you can find him very involved by the places and the atmospheres of the Cellina and on the other side he seems like he accompanies moving images in a very effectively way.  The cifra of his language is the eclecticism: the cello is explored in all of its expressive power and the occasional use of minimalism is combined with the voice and the lyrics of the poet Federico Tavan. Pes gave an unusual prospective of the Valcellina, musically described very originally and far from stereotypes of works inspired by nature.​
