Album Notes

“A song must be like the world. It must contain everything”
After stealing the quote from Gustav Mahler for his own definition of music, (changing symphony with song) Daniele Faraotti opened his album Canzoni in Salita ( 2012).
After a brief pause with In Cage’s Shoes (exit from the cage – 2014), the concept of musical elements revealing a whole world remains present in the songs of English Aphasia. Even though the process is different, the spontaneous and improvised features of the songwriting still remain. The music is left untouched in its spontaneous state from the first performance: unplanned improvisations with an impromptu chord progression. Beat loop, melody and nonsense lyrics sung in grammelot English – an aphasic English of first drafts. The development of arrangements aiming to leave unaltered the first draft has proven to be quite time consuming.
There is only one song in Italian - “Sea Elephant” a parody of Lennon’s “I am the walrus”. What is high in the “walrus” song goes low in this version. The lyrics of this version is a parody of Lennon’s song juxtaposing opposite images.
