This time their dream-work is caught at the Angelica Festival in Bologna, Italy. Festival director Massimo Simonini says it best:
“The Reveries remodel songs, songs “consumed” by time, re-finding and expanding them with unique instrumentation.
Time is a theme to explore, into which one must enter in order to transform. Removing or placing veils, magic filters; making micro and macro, using lenses to see the past again, first appearing very distant, then coming closer with a different dimension. We encounter story and style for a moment entering that olden time for a convinced salute, then returning into a space that is taking form.
Think of a song, stop it in time, caress it, observe it and play it—discovering how it speaks. The error mysteriously disappears; almost everything seems possible. The important thing is to believe it, to have a vision and respect it, between reality and illusion, depending.
Form stops when it is consumed. To sculpt into a song to find a new form is an answer to necessary movement. (”A form that thinks, a thought that forms.”)
A meditation on form, ironed, dilated, almost a long alap.
Inside a chamber atmosphere, we ask ourselves where we are. It is dreamtime. It is all so tragically romantic, looking at the moon, remembering a raga.
Rich of weak strength, delicate.” (Translated by Massimi Simonini, Doug Tielli, Shiela Tielli)
