🎧 LA MIA MUSICA – MY MUSIC….I DID MY EARLIEST STEPS IN THE WORLD OF THE WRITING AS A LYRICIST. FROM THESE DAYS I LOOKED AT THE MUSIC AS A FELLOW WHO SOMETIMES COMES AND SEES ME, AS A MERE INSPIRATION MOMENT, SOMETHING TO BE REGENERATED WITH. IN OTHER WORDS, A WAY TO TAKE A REST AMONG PERIODS OF WRITING OR ACTING. MORE, A REAL TOOL I CAN EXPRESS MYSELF WITH, USING A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE, ACCOMPLISHING MY DESIRE TO RECOUNT MYSELF IN A DIRECT AND REWARDING WAY. MY SONGWRITER ACTIVITY IS ENDEMIC, IT COMES WHEN I DON’T EXPECT IT, AS FAR AS THE POETRY DOES. IT COMES WHEN MY LIFE IS FULL OF THOSE MOMENTS IN WHICH I NEED TO DISTILL VERSES, EMOTIONS, THOUGHTS JUST IN THE SPACE OF A SONG, EMOTIONS TOO CUMBERSOME TO BE EXPRESSED IN OTHER FORMS. SO ART BECOMES SONG, METAPHOR, FACTORY.
