Alcuni Piccoli Film Live (2016)

Casiello

Gerardo Casiello

Riccardo Tesi, Rita Marcotulli

 Alcuni piccoli film – Live is the result of the interaction between music and visual arts. In this musical show featuring live projections, each song is paired with a video and the subtle balance of lights and shadows created on stage by the light designer allows musicians to interact with the visual elements. This is the first publication of a songwriter’s live show in  DXD/DSD.  Gerardo Casiello defines this as “an impressionist experience”; the author tells of one typical day, from awaking to night. Attention to details renders wider concepts, where daily life becomes metaphor of birth, life and death.
Casiello is accompanied by eight musicians and special guests Rita Marcotulli  on piano and Riccardo Tesi  on diatonic accordion. Winds and strings arrangements are by Tommaso Vittorini . The album cover was made by the visual artists who collaborated in this multimedia project, including Zerocalcare , Riccardo Mannelli  and Laura Scarpa .

Rita Marcotulli

Born in Rome, Marcotulli is the daughter of a sound engineer who collaborated with Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone, among others. She started playing piano at 5 years old and graduated in classical music from the Santa Cecilia Conservatory. Marcotulli's style largely relies on improvisation, and her influences include Brazilian music, African music and Indian music.

Marcotulli began her professional career in the early 1980s and made her first recording in 1984. Thanks to a series of prestigious collaborations, including Richard Galliano, Chet Baker, Enrico Rava, Kenny Wheeler, Peter Erskine, and Steve Grossman, in a few years she established herself as an important figure in the contemporary jazz scene. 

In 1987 Marcotulli was nominated for the Best Young Talent Award in the NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll. In 1988 she tourned in the U.S. and in Europe with Billy Cobham, also appearing in Cobham 's album Incoming. In 1996 she duetted with Pat Metheny at the Sanremo Music Festival. She has also had a long-term musical relationship with Dewey Redman.

She is also active as a composer of incidental music and musical scores for films. In 2010 Marcotulli won the David di Donatello for Best Score as well as the Ciak d'oro and the Nastro d'Argento in the same category for the score of Rocco Papaleo's film Basilicata Coast to Coast.

"Gerardo Casiello, I'm listening to your record in DSD format from NativeDSD. The impression it provides is that you hid inside the crate with all of the members of your musical group. The album has incredible sound quality!"
