Emilio...
Born in 1862, Emilio Salgari was one of the most incredibly prolific and imaginative Italian writers ever. In spite of his talent and the enormous success of his books, he was never given the recognition he deserved. Exploited by publishers, ignored by his peers, and hit time and time again by tragedy and bad luck, he lived a life of near poverty and misery till 1911, when he took his own life. Yet, his novels are permeated by noble, positive feelings and a strong belief in fair play. Therefore, I decided this record would not be about his personal misfortunes, but his amazing sense of adventure and the gratitude so many of us have for the simple, child-like excitement he has left for us to enjoy through his books.

The cover...
While I was beginning to work on the first track for this album, Uncle Sem sent me some pictures as possible covers. He had no idea what the new record would be about, and yet the pictures he sent me were so absolutely perfect for it that it was almost eerie. I used these cover images to focus on the project and – as usual - they guided me infallibly. domenicosemerarofoto.jimdo.com

The music...
When I started composing new tracks for this album trying to capture the emotions I feel when reading Salgari’s novels, I also realized that many of my old songs that had never been recorded had a similar spirit. I dug out the tapes where those draft compositions had been hidden for decades and finally gave them a definitive form.

All tracks were arranged and recorded in 2018.
Tracks 1, 2, 4, 7, 11 were composed in 2018.
All the other tracks were composed in the early 1990’s, with additional composition in 2018.

“Goran and the others” is for Goran Kuzminac and for all the others.
Some field recordings are by www.freesfx.co.uk – the rest are by me.

I was one half of BIOnighT (a Berlin School duo that split in 2011) for twelve years. I've always recorded my own stuff, though, lots of it and in no one genre. So make sure to check out all of my albums on Bandcamp, at least one is bound to belong in a genre you like!
You can also find plenty more on my website. My music is also available for licensing, just contact me macnight@inwind.it
