The first chapter of a brand new musical adventure.
The story behind this project
In the last 20 years I just did instrumental music, with some rare exceptions. I performed many times as a pianist or as a keyboard player with local bands, but never sang a word.
Lately, two events came into play: a couple of years ago I had the chance to get in touch with a chart-topping Italian singer, and I decided to go back to songwriting to give myself a chance. I invited a professional singer in my studio to record a demo, delivered it and… never had an answer.
In the same period I’ve been contacted by a YouTuber for a freelance job: he asked me to write a melody and then arrange and produce 7 tracks, all inspired from that single melody but in 7 different genres.
In the last 10 years I’ve had some experience as a freelance composer for videogames and short movies, and as a producer of stock music that have been used in advertising and promotional videos. But this was a whole new challenge and at the beginning I was overwhelmed.
After a few initial struggles I’ve found momentum and eventually completed the job, with great satisfaction from both the client and myself.
Right after that I thought: what if I write a few songs with lyrics, and apply the same process of producing them in different genres? I began writing these songs in September 2020 and finalized all versions at the end of 2022. This was the biggest project I’ve faced so far.
