Lea Bertucci & Sonoscopia
In the middle of a two-week residency at Sonoscopia by American saxophonist and composer Lea Bertucci, the first national state of emergency is declared. Circulation restrictions, canceled concerts and flights, and above all, an awakening to a completely new reality. In an almost apocalyptic scenario, where uncertainty and fear were complemented with some fascination for living in a science fiction scenario, the first days of isolation were spent recording and rethinking a large part of our lives as musicians. These recordings, the result of that initial confinement, carry that weight with them. To the instrumental density a time diluted from the past is added, which slightly fluctuates over the uncertainties of the future.
