correspondence from oophoi about arpe di sabbia
> glad to share with you this unforgettable experience, and that you are enjoying this new music so much. I really appreciate your deep thoughts and such a deep listening.
> yes, a magical night, surrounded by mountains and brooks, nocturnal birds and invisible insects, ghosts of the past and memories, and I was all alone with my machines, building the soundweb for a small audience of 60 friends.
> I have composed this music just for this new experience, to describe a deep communion with Nature.
> The first feedback from Kristian, at Nextera, has been a deep surprise, he didn't believe his ears because of these 2 hours+ of different styles and feelings, from total darkness to sublime light, from the abstract freeforms through to the fragile melodies, from the "old" Oophoi to the "new one".
> We have decided to release it as it was recorded - no studio gimmicks, no editing or manipulations - because I wanted it this way: a pure and uninterrupted flow of sounds.
> this will be my last solo disc for a lot of time, I know that many "fans" are angry about my "superproduction", so I have decided to listen to their prayers. They are right. I have produced and recorded a lot of music recently, and now it's time to focus on my studio and my instruments. "Arpe di sabbia" has enough new Oophoi music to discover.
> My only desire now is to release on official cd some of my back catalog discs, if I'll find enough money; I'll also join Mike Griffin for a collaboration disc, but I don't know if this will ever see the light of day.
> thanks again for sharing your feelings, and for posting such beautiful words on the Forum
> to you
