ABOUT THE RELEASE
Music for Eleven Instruments is an indie pop project with an orchestral feel, the brainchild of sicilian musician, composer and producer Salvatore Sultano, from Gela (CL).
The album, recorded in Catania and the surrounding area in collaboration with his friend Fabio Trombetta, is the faithful portrayal of the concept of the Eleven Instruments: an elegant melding of string and brass quartets with a powerful electronic backing which gives rise to evocative sounds and melodies marked by rousing percussive rhythms. At the same time it creates a sunny and humble atmosphere that never strays from its surreal pop nuances.
“At The Moonshine Park With An Imaginary Orchestra” is a story of shadows and artificial lights, a history of unborn creatures and enchanted carousels, a story of six-legged dogs that breathe fire and of a warden, in the form of fish-bird, in search of a bridge suspended in the air. This is the story of Moonshine Park, the universe which hides reason and that creates fantastic illusions and false hopes.
“At The Moonshine Park With An Imaginary Orchestra” was recorded jumping from house to house, from room to room, from a brass quartet in Belpasso to a grand piano in a rented house, from recording the drums and percussion in the studio to the rooms which reverberate with the string quartet.
It is music with a strong orchestral approach which elegantly combines brass and strings, electronics and catchy rhythms, evocative melodies that glide between the phrasing of the piano, the sweet shrill notes of the glockenspiel, springtime sounds which are interwoven with more shadowy atmospheres.
Moonshine Park is the place where Music For Eleven Instruments is reborn and rebuilt, where they matured their pop opus and theorchestra’s name take origin, as if to indicate the point where it islocated; the refuge in which they invite their thoughts to take shape and to paint the canvas on which the orchestra will play.
