In the summer of 2016, I booked two days at the Jazzanova Studio in Berlin, to record a handful of piano compositions with the help of producer Axel Reinemer with the intention to save that material before flying to the US to record Dreamers, the second album of my band Mighty Oaks.
Inspired by the quality of the result, and encouraged by a couple of close friends, I decided to return to the studio for two more days later in the year, to complete the work with further arrangements and sonic treatments — various synths, drums, and a guitar cameo by my dear friend and fellow musician David Lemaitre — allowing myself into an unconstrained, unfiltered creative process.
We ended up with 11 piano compositions, which became my debut album, Frammenti.
