bubble #31

OMG OMG OMG. I can't stop playing it. This morning, while working half asleep I was listening to this amazing mix by Future Classic, when suddenly I've been woken up by a LOVELY melody. After some investigations and some precious help by Cevo's iPhone, I got both the title and the file, which is downloadable from Modular People's Soundcloud page! Since then, I fell in a joyful mood which is persisting for hours with no intention to stop: I'm loving the whole world. Thanks Canyons and Duke Dumont for blessing me with this amazing day. Love!

masters: caravaggio

There's no need to tell you who Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is. And there's no need to say that he is one of my favourite artists, besides being one of my biggest inspirers. Ever. Among his many works, this one always struck me, its title is Supper at Emmaus (Cena in Emmaus), 1601. It describes the moment when the resurrected Jesus reveals himself to his disciples Luke and Cleophas. What I'm in love with, is the way Caravaggio caught the moment just before his diners' mouths open in surprise. I mean, in 1601, nobody couldn't even imagine about photography or cinema. And yet it moves! Look at Jesus' gesture: it is majestically caught in a frame between two which could either precede or follow an action. You can see what could be going on before and after this frame. You can make it go the way you want and you can imagine a hundred different screenplays. I know this picture by heart but I get stunned every time. British friends, did you know that this wonder is hosted at The National Gallery in London? :)

This is the totem I drew while talking with my friends yesterday :)

I follow rivers

This is definitely one of my favourite songs. I already posted it here some time ago as a bubble and now I drew it. I can't describe how good it makes me feel, but I can say that it blows the dancefloor and whenever I play it I am sure that all the people feel the same. It's just a masterpiece. Nothing more and nothing less :)

bubble #29

This is one of those songs that I will keep in my heart forever. I still remember the first time I heard it: It was the year 2000 and I was driving in my car. I suppose it was summer, because it was a sunny day and all the windows were down. It reminds me of a bright period before a long, darker, darkest one and always makes me feel as I was 22 :)

at mine or at yours?

Bologna is blessed by an early spring breeze so today I went drawing at the park. A couple of blackbirds was fluttering very close to me so I followed their flirt and drew it my way. Wondering what they were saying, I remembered about a bar in Berlin named zu mir oder zu dir, where I went last summer. Its name means "at mine or at yours?" and was the perfect cue for my two blackbirds :) The first one says "at mine or at yours?" and the second one says "here". There it is!
