OPERA is Gabriele Ciampi’s fourth album. It was conceived during lockdown, written in three months, from May to July 2020, and produced between Rome and Los Angeles, working remotely with the musicians of his CentOrchestra for the first time.
Gabriele Ciampi says, “Opera is “My Opera”: my idea of musical Opera”.
For the first time, Ciampi himself plays the piano and synthesizer on this album, composing intense tracks with pencil and paper, harmonically diverse and complex but united by a single thread: a rigid classical structure sustained by contemporary and vintage electronic sonorities.
OPERA has been released worldwide on 18th December by Universal Music Group.
Gabriele Ciampi writes INFINITO, his first soundtrack created for a book. The piece accompanies HOLY, the new work of the American photographer Donna Ferrato.
For the first time, Ciampi himself is at the piano, whose subdued, intimate harmonies start an urgent dialogue with Livia De Romanis' Cello, in an intense and growing melody. "The latest exploration where my intrepid companion, Music, leads me" - Gabriele Ciampi
