As for music, especially progressive rock, I am not mention the many references to Dante's works that inspired compositions, especially in the last thirty years of the other century.

2021 was the year of the 700th anniversary of the death of the poet Dante Alighieri. In Italy there was a full calendar of events to celebrate it at its best.

Well, for some time I had been thinking of doing something of my own musically and then in 2021 in two days, mainly improvising and recording live, I realized my vision of "The Divine Comedy" in an entirely instrumental form. In "my vision" I also included the production of the cover, more exactly the album artwork.

The tracks are not short. However, it should be considered that the entire route (Inferno-Purgatorio-Paradiso) is 40 minutes long, spread over 7 tracks.

Musical ideas, arrangements, all parts of the keyboards are by Sandro Glavina. Musical performances improvised and recorded live, subsequently adapted and mixed in the studio. Album released on 28 and 29 August 2021

Produced by L’Uomo e L’Ombra - Reg. MTKKI15-290821

The entire album is free to listen to and downloadable

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA

Ciao Sandro,

L'originalità certo non manca in questa raccia coinvolgente per la sua atmosfera piena di mistero e di.....strane creature che si muovono sulla sfondo della tue sonorità. Complimenti!!!
