Best-known as the keyboardist in Italy's premier post-rock combo Giardini Di Mirò, wowing fans and skeptics alike with their formidable albums and impressively intense live performances, Luca Di Mira finally returns as a solo artist. After Flowing Seasons (2006), released on the now-defunct label 2nd Rec, From Dusk To Dawn is the second album he has pursued on his own. Six years down the line, Pillow's sound has changed quite drastically, yet glows with the same shocking deepness. Focusing on a unifying, even more orchestral sound, Di Mira creates his own melancholic universe. Centered around the epic "Silent Journey," Pillow demonstrates in each and every track, how music should be approached in these troubled times. Merging subtle piano fragments, overwhelming string arrangements, minimal guitar melodies and even 4/4 beats, Pillow has written a soundtrack no one will ever forget. From Dusk To Dawn (explained in Pillow's own words): "This album was almost entirely written at night. I started writing when I moved from the city to the mountains. The nightly landscape and the quiet/calm/peacefulness have been my muses, from summer to winter, from dusk to dawn. Every song is a night-life fragment, full of peace, silence, hints and dreams as only nature can offer. The album was written, performed, produced and recorded by myself in my studio. The string sessions were played by Emanuele Reverberi (violin and trumpet in Giardini Di Mirò) and recorded at the Igloo Audio Factory (Correggio - Italy) by Andrea Sologni and Marco Peterlini. The last song of the album was written for Ada, my daughter. The chorus voice is of Elin Olofsson, a Swedish songwriter who, at the time, was Ada's nanny."
