Stuck in Abeyancy sleepless dreaming my default is Nival The sky opens and drinks away all my energy legs in an upended pedal Wishing i could be free Like the bluebird Unbounded to her tableau

Lifetime 04:22
Listen it's time to break silence to disarm your violence the killer is you as i wash away through lies that you said at the end of your grace plans that you've hidden by the love i was bleeding whatever i've taught you whatever i've learned i know there's so much not a lot of concern i feel like a ghost when i walk through this city your meanings are less than the words that you're stealing i guess that i'll vanish when this will be over i'm sick of imbalance i’d rather get smaller i gave up to a glare and what is left? you are the one to forgive and forget

about

SINTESI is the debut solo album of Alessandro Baris with the collaboration of vocalists Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Lisa Papineau and Emma Nolde.
The album is a new point of departure from Alessandro previous works with other projects and collaborations, in Italy and abroad.
Not a renovation but a continuous research through an endless process of deconstruction and construction of his music language.

LEE RANALDO
"The initial text for Last Letter to Jayne was written in the early dark days of the pandemic, The poem came as a sort of memorial to a relationship with a fixed ending. Some time later Alessandro approached me about working together on a collaborative song. When I heard the somber, majestic music I thought that I could adapt the poem to fit, and also challenge myself to be experimental with my vocals in a way that was quite new for me - using overlapping voices and phrases to create an instability between the foreground and the background, a '3- dimensional' evocation of an emotional state"

EMMA NOLDE
During quarantine of April 2020, when Alessandro asked me to collaborate on his song “Embers”, I was experiencing apocalyptic feelings. Sometimes we tend to exaggerate our feelings especially in moments like that when you're forced to think a lot. Right before lock down I had the luck to meet a person who changed me very deeply and I was very afraid to lose that link because of the forced distance. The music of Alessandro changed my point of view, showing me the beauty. It had such a strong impact on me -“At least I found someone before the end...” - I wrote that to say how grateful I am to have experienced such a beautiful thing that could have ended remaining as it was. As usual music fix your mood and change your perception of things, especially when it touches you so much.

LISA PAPINEAU
"you can't cry 'cause you'll look broke down, but you're cryin' anyway 'cause you're all broke down said sly stone. I wrote te lyrics for Nival inspired by this line from Sly Stone. The tenderness of everything falling apart ... what is still burning even when you are buried deep."
