"Note di viaggio" translates in english as "Travel notes".
I began to write these pieces just before Costanza became my girlfriend and I finished to compose them almost one and half year later.
This music, for me, is a description of the emotions and the feelings that came along during this time with her.
All the songs are instrumentals, and all the italian titles (as well as the music!) represent the sensation of a particular moment we lived togehter during this marvellous journey. For this reason I decided not to translate them in english, because it would ruin my link with the music itself. I hope you will be able to enjoy the listening as I enjoyed to play and record the album!
All the songs were written, played, arranged and recorded by me using guitars, bass and my computer.
You can support my music by buying the album for 1€ (or more, if you want... :) )
Read the review by SOS:
Quite literally a labour of love, Note Di Viaggio is Matteo Bosi's musical tribute to his girlfriend, Costanza. It's an entirely instrumental, one-man effort, complete with noodling guitars, piano sounds of every persuasion, and more pedals than you could easily shake a stick at. With climactic orchestral moments going off all over the place, we can be sure that Costanza is quite a woman.
None of this is what you'd call bad. Indeed, it's the work of someone with instincts natural enough to improvise convincingly for 25 minutes. However, the five tracks on the record give no indication of being independent from one another, and there seems to be no real reason for presenting them as separate entities.
I think with some considerable musical direction, you might find you had a decent session musician, whose penchant for 'Parisienne Walkways'-style solos might just come in handy. But, in reality, you're probably more likely to hear it the next time you're boarding a plane. Nell McLeod
