According to our disposition or character, we can savour happiness just for a few fleeting moments. The rest of the time, our life wavers between routine and worry, boredom and labour and we are overcome by a frequent sense of hopelessness.
In spite of millenary ages of culture, philosophy, religion and science, serenity for the human beings is more an illusion than a certainty.
So it is and it will ever be.
In this eternal war between Light and Shade, we have two mighty allies: Nature and Art, in all of their forms and expressions. Personally I consider them the visible and real part of something much bigger than us; I also believe that our soul isn’t inside our body but that our body is inside our soul, therefore I felt happy just spending my time in those two great spiritual dimensions.
Contaminating Nature and Art as we are doing in these days means not only the defacement of the world around us, but also of our inner world. This can only lead us to a large spread of pathologies, mental alienation, discomfort, wars, to the threat of famine and of drought... So if we want to escape from this danger and win the fight against Shade, we cannot avoid protecting and cultivating Nature and Art and also giving up all false treasures that the Praetorian Guards of Globalized Nothingness try to administer to us every day.
Everyone is involved in this task and personally responsible for the consequences, even those who make no choice: what we are, what we do, the way we use our talents and skills put us on the sick or on the healthy side.
There aren’t any other possible ways.
Being born prevents us from escaping the problem and, maybe, it’s one of the reasons why we came into the world. Fortunately we haven’t been sent on the battlefield whitout weapons or shields and it’s Art and Nature themselves which provide us with them: they make us stronger, amplifying our inner resources and our natural sensitivity, they encourage us and mitigate our existential efforts. At least, that’s what I feel and that’s the reason why I chose to live far from towns, always devoting myself to literature, to the theatre and, of course, to music.
I composed and recorded this cd beginning from inner images that could evoke the same positive sensations I feel when I’m in contact with nature, particularly with water, my favourite element.
I named the album after a mountain – which also gives its name to a lake and a valley – placed on the border between Italy and France, in the southern Cottian Alps, not far from where I live. The tracks of this record ideally tell the story of a river since it rises from a source at a high altitude, then becomes a torrent and finally a river... until it gets to the plain, is contaminated but at the end it comes back to the earth (which I represented as a beating heart), and at this moment it’s purified, it disperses itself at the mouth and begins its cycle again. Meanwhile it has travelled all around the world, it has met the sun and the moon, woods and meadows, animals and men... so, leaving the earth to rise to the sky, it will bring this knowledge with it and since Nature works with spirals instead of with circles, when it comes back to the earth it will begin a new cycle, similar but different from the previous one.
And all this is related to evolution...
Recorded from September 2006 to April 2007 in the ex-cattleshed of Basso’s House in Frazione Cornati, Murazzano, High Langa, which is also the editorial office of the literary magazine “Ellin Selae”.
During the recording of this album I drew inspiration from the music by:
Mike Oldfield (but only his first albums) *
(*) Please Mr Oldfield compose music as you did when you were twenty once again!
Many thanks to the dogs Trilly, Sirba, Nina, Dana; to the cats Felicia, Otis... and to all the other wild animals living in the surrounding woods.

Thanks to Jacqueline Stutz for the transation into German and to Silvia Brera for the translation into English.
Besides composing music, Franco Del Moro has also written books and a theatrical monologue (played whereever there’s someone willing to listen to it); for further information see https://www.tradebit.com
