Tino Petilli ne ‘L’ultimo miracolo’ di Enrico Pau

Con molto piacere posso finalmente dire che il bellissimo ultimo lavoro di Enrico Pau dal titolo ‘L’ultimo miracolo’, di cui ho curato il mix e il sound design, sarà presentato a settembre in prima assoluta alla 74a Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica in programma a Venezia dal 30 agosto al 9 settembre prossimi come evento speciale della 32a Settimana Internazionale della Critica, sezione SIC@SIC – Short Italian Cinema. L’importante riconoscimento è stato annunciato oggi. Appena potrete, vi consiglio vivamente di andare a vedere questo lavoro, in cui tra l’altro recitano gli straordinari Tino Petilli e Mario Faticoni insieme a Francesco Origo, Massimiliano Medda, Alessio Medda e Luca Spanu, perchè è di una poesia infinita. Bravo Enrico e tutti gli altri che ci hanno lavorato, tra i quali i bravissimi Andrea Lotta al montaggio, Francesco Piras alla fotografia, Antioco Floris alla produzione e la giustamente immancabile Roberta Aloisio.

STEFANO GUZZETTI ENSEMBLE FOR DOLCE & GABBANA

Playing at the Piazza del Duomo in Monreale, Palermo.

Now that everything has happened and facts can be revealed, I am very happy to tell you that recently me and my ensemble (Sara Meloni at the violin, Giulia Dessy at the viola and Giada Vettori at the cello) have been asked by the stylists Dolce & Gabbana to play during their fashion show ‘Alta Sartoria Dolce & Gabbana 2017′ which took place in Palermo at Piazza del Duomo on july 8th. Playing while the models were cat walking all around us was wonderful and a bit challenging, as we had to be in perfect time with the end of the show. Anyway everything went smoothly and everyone, including the stylists, was very happy with the overall result and with how the music perfectly matched with the models’ cat walking. The atmosphere was very magical, indeed. You can see some snippets of us playing at the show here. And also, if you have a Facebook account, you can watch all the fashion show here.

After the show we also had the pleasure to play at the after-dinner party at the Chiostro di Monreale, basically a few meters behind the place where the fashion show was held. On the day after, on july 9th, we also had the pleasure of playing at the final private party that took place at the Castello Lanza Branciforte di Trabia, near Palermo as well. A beautiful castle near the seaside, a magical place that was really the perfect match for something like that. Last but not least, during all the days we were there, we had the privilege of being filmed by the Oscar winning director Giuseppe Tornatore, who was there as he was commissioned shooting all the events in order to make a documentary out of the ‘Alta Sartoria Dolce & Gabbana 2017’. Needless to say, we can’t wait to watch it.

Photography. Fiorella Sanna

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ian Hawgood about my music, its creative process, some of my music gear, and other tons of things related to my microcosmos. It was a lovely chat and, at least, it brings an updated portray of what currently flows in my mind.

You can check this interview both on the Fluid Audio and the Home Normal websites.

I hope this could be a good read for you. Stefano.

New Video. Stefano Guzzetti and Lisa Gerrard. ‘Illuminate’

I am very happy to finally release the video of my collaboration with the worldwide acclaimed singer Lisa Gerrard. Needless to say, working with her has been a honour and a privilege. I hope you like the track and the video as well. It features the beautiful Laura Demontis and Lucia Meleddu, the script has been written by Francesco Accardo, the direction was by Alessandro Congiu, Massimo Gasole was the camera operator and we all have been assisted by the lovely Alice Deledda. Shooting the video was a real fun, and it was a sort of team work between friends. We did our best to make something valuable that also gives justice to Lisa’s wonderful voice. We hope we succeeded in this. I also would like to tell you that this song will be part of the deluxe vinyl edition of ‘Escape’, which will be released by the Brooklyn Bridge Records label this forthcoming september. The album will feature a wonderful sleeve design by Vaughan Oliver along with the beautiful artwork by Claudia Pomowski. A 12″ full of remixes will be available shortly after, so stay tuned. Stefano.
