[LBN011] Adriano Orrù – “Hèsperos” (15 September 2011)



[LBN011] Adriano Orrù – “Hèsperos”

“Hèsperos” is a work based on simplicity. A musician and his instrument.

Some other small objects: marbles balls, pins, beaters…

Six tracks that have in common the fact of starting from the simplest thing

in an instrument like the double bass: the sound of a  open string.

This element is the ‘basic foundation’ from which it develops that small

or big world of sounds which is a music piece.  

Many simple pieces can give life to something complex. Just like in nature.
