Published today the videoclip of Clizia, single extracted from the debut album of Marcello De Carolis. Here is the tracklist of the album
The official clip of Clizia, excerpt from the debut album “The Eclectic Beating – Contemporary Music for Chitarra Battente” by the guitarist Marcello De Carolis. Composed by Francesco Loccisano, the new song is a real dive into mythology and popular folklore. “In this case – said the musician – the beauty and brightness of the composition are dictated by Clizia, who is a Greek nymph. Mythology tells that Clizia was a young lover of the Sun God. When the God falls in love with Leucotoe, the young Clizia, repudiated, can not help but spend the days turning her gaze towards the path of the chariot of the Sun. by Clizia’s behavior, she transforms her into a sunflower, the flower always facing the sun. So Loccisano with the song Clizia wants to stay with his gaze constantly turned to the sun and beauty “, so De Carolis in a statement.
The video clip was shot by Vito D’Andrea e “director – you learn – has enhanced everything with a play of lights that between the heat and the cold transport the listener into a sensory experience of a beating guitar “. The album, on the other hand, collects the work done in recent years by the Lucan guitarist for the solo battente guitar, a heterogeneous record that wants to represent the different facets of the modern Battente Guitar: “With this record we are witnessing the birth, not of a new instrument, but of its regeneration that welds a remote and ‘oral’ past to a present alive and guaranteed by writing”, writes Maestro Angelo Gilardino in the liner notes.
