"Alessandra Celletti's album Above the Sky consists of nine original piano pieces and three by composers who have been an ongoing influence on her work (George Gurdjieff, Lawrence Ball and Alan Hovhaness). The CD is packaged in a very beautiful digipak with ten color paintings on the panels. "This new album as always affects my relationship with the flight and the starry sky. Maybe my 'extreme' album more because my interest is going right to the essence of the sound, the music as pure color and tonal experimentation. For this reason I have chosen precious fellow travelers, who, like me, intend music research as an exploration of sound, and I wanted to juxtapose to my compositions authors who I feel similar in the way of intending music as a tool to give voice to the invisible. I threw the coins to form three hexagrams. They formed the 'Sky,' the 'Crescent Moon,' and the 'Vision...' and maybe the album will start from these notes. I tried to sing the stars, the emergence of a lily in the fog... following the sound to dissolve the image of a dream. Next to my piano you will hear the colors of an accordion, a bass flute, the poignant notes of a saxophone, the magic of a Theremin, the drum beats. I'm not anticipating the names of the musicians, but some of you who know me better, may have already guessed. I decided to record in my house and with my piano because for a work of this kind I needed a total familiarity with the sounds and colors that I wanted to find. And then my house, small and chaotic, is my launching pad towards the infinite." -- Alessandra
