MP3 Nico Girasole - Et Nico
A sound journey in space and time that starts from the Mediterranean coasts and arrives at Tienanmen square passing through ancient Greece, Turkey, Persia and Tibet. All that easily rendered by the unusual and virtuous acoustic ensemble.

He has written for 10 years music for theatre (Vienna Paket Theater, Monaco Theater der Jungend, Roma Theater, Bari Kismet) and movies. In 1999 he was invited to record for Vel Net. He worked three years at "Et Nico" music, recording live in a little country church.
It''s music for an unusual chamber ensemble, guitars, clarinets, female voice, double bass and a stringed instrument built by himself which is inspired by the ancient Lyra.
...The sounds float like shaded colours of oriental flavour from which strange objects of the memory appear: quotations and allusions to music loved by the author, even Habanera of Ravel and Fleurette africaine of Ellington ... are notes for an imaginary travel, jotted down by a man who mockingly declares "I have never been beyond Corfu" and plays with the false and the likely, searching a very elusive truth...
Fabrizio Versienti (Corriere del Mezzogiorno)
