Ramon Moro & Emanuele Maniscalco

Dreams (autoproduction)

Ramon Moro (trumpeter always recognisable for his visionary sound) has worked in diverse fields in the last twenty years: jazz settings, electronic or improvisation music, collaborations with rock bands, participations in pop-songwriters’ music albums. He collaborates with contemporary art artists, directors and videomakers, thanks to his aptitude to improvisation, care of sound and his sensibility to interact with other expressive forms. He played in Richi Ferrero’s art installation “Bwindi Light Masks”, in Botto & Bruno’s work in the prestigious Palazzo Carignano’s court in Turin; he has also collaborated in Manifesta12 in Palermo with artist duo Masbedo.

Dreams

Time ago, for many nights, I had some evocative dreams.
I dreamt of melodies suspended in the air, I focused on their melodic lines and I could precisely recognize the sound of my trumpet.
They were very long airs, sometimes hypnotic, interposed by many silences.
I couldn’t lose that feeling and I decided to write them when I woke up.
I thought that the trumpet sound had to be accompanied by the piano and so I composed eight songs for trumpet and piano.
Emanuele, so sensitive and refined, has interpreted them exactly how I thought them.
The general atmosphere of the album is nocturnal, dreamy, nostalgic but enchanting, ancient and gentle, like the soundtrack of an unwritten film.
In this work I decided not to use effects on my trumpet sound since, after many years, I felt the need of purity and cleanliness.
It’s an album completely different from the previous ones, that rank in more experimental music areas.
Dreams is an album of compositions with very limited improvised interludes, I wanted to focus only on the essence of the dreams and on the feeling that they caused me.
